Today I set out to make peanut butter truffles. Being this was my first venture with truffles, it had to be simple. Luckily, I had stumbled on Foodzie’s recipe. The only thing adapted was chocolate type and portions were cut down to 1/4. It makes eight generous portions, but can easily be cut down to 12 without compromising quality.
You will need:
4 ounces of dark chocolate (or other chips you prefer)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
A double boiler is recommended, but since I don’t have one - a simple double boiler method with a glass and pot works just fine.
If you want to sprinkle nuts, or sprinkles on your truffles - make sure you do this before you chill them while the chocolate is still sticky.
Chill for 3 hours (or more if possible) - sorry I didn’t capture that part.
When dipping, use a fork to dip the ball into chocolate. A second utensil is helpful in coating evenly.
Coating is definitely a learning process. Most truffles ended up with ‘feet’. Although I don’t know anyone who’ll complain having more chocolate.
