I love making candies and truffles. Especially when they only require a few ingredients. We’ve made this peanut butter truffle recipe many times, as they are a favorite in our home, but this time we swapped out the dark chocolate for white chocolate. DELICIOUS! You can easily customize them for any occasion by adding sprinkles! We’ve made them for Valentine’s Day, and this batch is heading to a “Dancing Under the Stars” dance at our church.
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
Simply combine all ingredients (except chocolate) and form into 1″ balls. Freeze until cold then dip in white chocolate!
(If you don’t have one of these candy dipping tools, I’d highly recommend getting one!)
If you’d like to add sprinkles you’ll need to do it quickly because the chocolate hardens FAST! This is because the peanut butter filling is frozen and makes the chocolate react quickly.
Keep finished truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The ingredients themselves don’t need to be refrigerated to keep from spoiling, but the chocolate could soften in a warm room.
This recipe makes 32 (1″) truffles and can easily be doubled to make for a crowd.
