IMG_7066

Ingredients

  • 3½ tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips, melted
  • Cocoa powder, optional

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in microwave.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, and butter; mix to combine.
  3. Gradually add powdered sugar. More than 1 cup powdered sugar may be needed until dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Take mixture out of bowl and roll into a large ball. It should not be sticky. Chill in refrigerator for at least an hour or two where it will harden. Dough may be kept in a sealed bag over night.
  5. Roll balls about the size of a tablespoon or 1 inch and place on a cookie sheet. Return to refrigerator.
  6. Melt chocolate and drip balls into chocolate. Place on wax paper and repeat until finished with mix.
  7. Refrigerate when done.

Notes

I skipped some of the refrigeration steps, mostly because I didn’t want to wait too long to make these awesome truffles. As a result, the batter was super sticky, and it was difficult to mold the balls. Still, I managed, and they still looked and tasted awesome. They’re addicting little balls of Reese’s peanut butter cups.

I ran out of chocolate for some of the truffles, so I dipped the remaining truffle balls into cocoa powder and drizzled chocolate syrup on top [chocolate syrup is mostly for presentation, rather than to add to the taste]. I also sprinkled cocoa powder on top of the chocolate covered truffles as well, again, mostly for presentation rather than taste.
