Peanut Butter Truffles

Homemade peanut butter truffles that taste just like peanut butter cups! 

Total 1 hour 30 minutes
Makes 18 Truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 Tbsp margarine/butter melted
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream/whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered/icing sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or melting chocolate
  • 1/2 cup white icing/frosting

Instructions

  1. Combine peanut butter, butter, cream, and vanilla; blend until smooth.

    Add powdered sugar and blend until completely creamy.

  2. Refrigerate dough 1 or more hours.

    Roll dough into 1" balls between your hands, then roll out two points on either end to form football shapes.

  3. Melt your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds or so; dip your truffles into the chocolate using a fork, allowing excess to drip off before placing them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

    Refrigerate to set.

  4. Using a small tube of icing or homemade white icing, add stitch lines to create footballs.

Notes

These truffles can be made in advance; they store well in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
