Peanut Butter Truffles

These Peanut Butter Truffles are a delicious and decadent little treat!

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy, but creamy would be best)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 bag of chocolate chips (approx 6 oz chocolate)

  1. Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until completely combined. This mixture will be thick. I just used a fork to mix until it got mostly combined and then finished mixing by hand.
  2. Roll peanut butter mixture into approx 1inch round balls. Refridgerate.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler over low heat or via microwave. 
  4. Roll peanut butter balls into chocolate.
  5. Place on foil or wax paper and let the chocolate set.
  6. Store in an air tight container. I kept them in the fridge.
