A rich, chocolaty, melt in your mouth truffle filled with Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter and dipped in dark chocolate.
Serves: 50 Truffles
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • ¼ cup butter,softened
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 8 oz dark chocolate melting wafers
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl add Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter, confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla extract, salt and unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix together with a spoon and then knead together until well blended.
  3. Roll about a tablespoon size of dough in the palm of your hand to make a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet. If the dough seems to soft to roll, place in the refrigerator to harden up. Once all of the dough is rolled into balls, place in the freezer for one hour.
  4. Meanwhile in a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate wafers. Microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and microwave in 10 second intervals until chocolate is melted.
  5. Skewer each chilled truffle with a toothpick and roll into melted chocolate. Feel free to press into peanuts or leave plain. I used sprinkles on top. Return truffles to parchment paper; remove the toothpick and let cool. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
  6. Note: I had a little bit of chocolate left, so calories maybe a little less.
