I made these as per the recipe. Firstly, I added a little bit of splenda to sweeten them up a bit because i used very dark chocolate to dip them into. secondly, i dont see how you can get 20 per batch. i got 10. If you get 20, they will be the size of a small marble.

I made these, replacing the pretzels with almond flour and the milk chocolate with dark chocolate. It dropped the total carbs per piece to about 4.5 grams. I was able to get about 16 truffles from the recipe. They were yummy! Using the original ingredients and yielding 16 truffles, the per piece carbs would be 6.9.

These combine 2 of my favorite flavors: PB and Chocolate. I might try the following recipe alterations…replace milk chocolate with dark chocolate and replace pretzels with finely ground peanuts or almond flour…trying to reduce the carbs even more! Will let you'all know how it works out!
