Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

You know my preferred guidelines, fast, easy, tasty, and all in one bowl. And if it’s something that the kids can do then it goes straight to my list of favorites.

The hardest part of these chocolate treats is taking everything out of the refrigerator/pantry and waiting for the butter to soften. These treats are an easy way to let a friend, neighbor or teacher know that you are thinking about them and wishing them a happy day. They are so quick and easy that they can’t be saved for Christmas or Valentines Day. NO! Make them all year long. Any old time you want to let somebody know that they are special and you are thinking of them, make these.

Without further ado.

Chocolate Peanut butter Truffles Recipe:

1C Peanut butter (crunchy if you like)
1C Butter
1lb Powdered Sugar

Blend, form into balls and refrigerate until firm.
The kids can put some powdered sugar on their hands and roll the balls for you or you can use a scoop to drop them.

Chocolate Topping:
Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (any chocolate you have or like)
Fun and festive sprinkles

Melt the chocolate and add a tablespoon or so of oil. The oil helps to make the chocolate silky smooth.
Dip the cold peanut butter ball in the chocolate and sprinkle with the sprinkles of your liking.
Return to the refrigerator for chocolate to firm.
The kids can use a fondue fork to dip the balls for you. Make sure you have lots of sprinkles if your kids sprinkle the way mine do.

Sprinkles we like:
Any shape and color Non-Peril
Chopper nuts

Package them in some fun way and share them.

*Make sure to keep them cool. The balls get soft and messy if they get to warm. Attach a simple note saying keep cool to your treat boxes.*
