I’ve been making Peanut Butter Truffles for almost 8 years. It’s the first truffle I dared attempt – it seemed simple! And it’s the first truffle my husband has ever enjoyed, which is why I keep coming back to it! The creamy filling is impossible to mess up and the result is rich and creamy, peanut butter treat.
I also love this recipe, because it makes a lot of peanut butter truffles. Perfect for gift giving! Fill a candy box with a few of these goodies and you’ll quickly become the favorite neighbor.
You need just a few ingredients. Peanut butter chips. Peanut butter. Chocolate. And the filling takes almost no time! The most intensive part of the process is dipping your truffles. But a little late night dipping session is one of my favorite past times. Add a little Netflix. And I’ll keep dipping all night long!
A few tips to make your dipping easier…
1. Chill your filling prior to dipping. It will stay more stable during the dip and the chocolate will harden quickly.
2. Use parchment paper. Your dipped chocolates will easily be removed.
3. Add a little sprinkle to the top. Do this while the chocolate is still wet. It will add some visual interest and disguise any imperfections.
4. Share these with someone. Or you will eat the entire pan yourself.
I like to use Chocolate Snaps for this truffle. They are considered a compound chocolate, which means they don’t need to be tempered, as they don’t contain any cocoa butter. (Learn more about chocolate, here.) They are easy to use and pair well with the creamy filling, making a delicious peanut butter truffle.
