chocolate peanut butter truffles

Dear reader(s),

Sorry I have abandoned you for so long. But here are truffles!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles:

3/4 cups peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Put in a bowl and mix these things until you form a dough. Roll into about two inch thick balls and stick toothpicks in them. Place in the freezer on wax paper for half an hour or until firm.

While they are in the freezer, melt down any chocolate you please. I used about 6 ounces but play it by ear. I think that peanut butter part is kind of sweet, so I used a semi sweet chocolate for most of them to balance it out. I also threw in some chopped pecans, so now i can be fancy and call these chocolate peanut pecan truffles. Extra syllables lead to fanciness (so does the word artisan in front of any title, which both sounds fancy and makes sloppy work seem deliberate! hooray for words). It is not my fault if you end up sounding pretentious and your food tastes horrible, though, so be warned.

Dip the balls into the chocolate and place back onto the wax paper. Decorate in any way you see fit. I melted down white chocolate for most and did a drizzle (two have cocoa powder on them and two have mini chocolate drops on them). Sprinkles or nuts would work as well. Place in the freezer again for a quick set or just leave out until the chocolate hardens (it does not take long).



  1. WoW! These are so beautiful. Well done. I'd love for you to do some with crazy flavors. I'm thinking like dark chocolate with tequila/ mango filling and sea salt and cayenne. Hmm.....
