This is a very easy recipe for peanut butter truffles. Just 3 ingredients, cream cheese, icing sugar, and peanut butter. That's all.

I made these at Christmas and they were gone in no time. Everyone loved them.

This time I decorated some for Valentine's Day. They are so easy to make, you can make them for any occasion.

In the picture above I used red and pink wafers, Oreo crumbs, and melted chocolate. I wasn't sure how well the chocolate would stick to the balls, as it tends to run off easily, so I added a handful of peanut butter wafers to the melting chocolate, so it would stick better and it turned out wonderful.

Preparation:

You will need a large mixing bowl, a slotted spoon or fork if you are going to coat the balls, a double boiler or a medium bowl and sauce pan again only if you are going to coat the balls, wax paper, cookie sheets, and an air tight container.


Place the wax paper on the cookie sheet and set aside

Gather Your Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

If you want to add a coating to them, then you will need whatever you want to use as a coating.

Creating Your Peanut Butter Truffles Masterpiece:

  1. Beat cream cheese with electric mixer until fluffy.
  2. Slowly add icing sugar and beat until smooth. It will get very thick.
  3. Melt the peanut butter chips slowly in the microwave. About 20 seconds at a time.
  4. Once the peanut butter chips are melted add them to the cream cheese mixture and blend well.
  5. Chill for about an hour until they are firm and will shape easily without sticking to your hands.

  6. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on the waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Store in an air tight container in the fridge to keep the balls firm.
  7. You can leave them plain and they taste delicious or you can roll the balls in different coating like I did.
