  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut *see note
  • 1 cup pecans *see note
  • 1 cup chopped gluten free pretzels


  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the Nutella and chocolate chips.
  • Microwave for 40 seconds and stir. Microwave at 25-second intervals after this, stirring each time to prevent your chocolate from burning.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix well to coat all of the ingredients in the chocolate mixture.
  • Lay a piece of wax paper over a cookie sheet.
  • Use a cookie scoop to drop the mixture into balls onto the wax paper.
  • Place in the refrigerator or freezer to harden. About 60 minutes in the freezer or 2 hours in the refrigerator.


1. Use unsweetened shredded coconut.
2. You can use any flavor chocolate chip. I used dark chocolate chips.
3. There are many brands of gluten free pretzels. Any will work in this recipe, but I would avoid the flavored pretzels.
