Sweet Indulgences Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Makes 15-20 truffles depending on your scooper

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup of cream cheese

3/4 cup crushed peanuts (salted or unsalted- the choice is yours)

splash of vanilla (optional)

Directions:

  1. Melt the chocolate chips in an microwave safe bowl until melted.  I recommend using a lower power setting such as 50% so that you don’t overcook the chocolate.  Allow the chocolate to cool to room temperature.
  2. combine melted chocolate, peanut butter, and cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy.  Add vanilla to mixture if you wish.
  3. Pour mixture into a pie plate, cover and refrigerate for about 3 hours, or until chocolate is firm to the touch.
  4. Using a melon ball scooper, scoop round even balls of the mixture.  Roll the balls in your crushed peanuts and serve immediately.
  5. Refrigerate any uneaten truffles so they don’t spoil.

 

 

***Tip:  If you do not like peanuts, you can also roll your truffles in mini chocolate chips, coco powder, or powdered sugar.  These truffles can also be used to decorate cakes for a different look.
