No-Bake Peanut Butter Truffles
Who doesn’t love a good ol’ no-bake recipe? Especially when that recipe contains peanut butter AND chocolate!
Today, I bring you one of my all-time favourite bite-sized treats – No-Bake Peanut Butter Truffles.
Creamy peanut butter balls coated in a dark chocolate shell, and drizzled with even more chocolate. Peanut butter and chocolate heaven!
Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these truffles. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- unsalted butter
- smooth peanut butter: or you can use crunchy peanut butter for added texture.
- vanilla extract
- icing/powdered sugar
- dark chocolate
- milk chocolate
How to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Truffles
To make these truffles, beat the butter until light and creamy. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt, and beat until smooth and combined.
Add the icing sugar, and beat until combined.
The mixture will be crumbly, but you should be able to roll into balls! Roll the dough mixture into 1-inch balls (about 0.5oz each), and place on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper.
You should have about 40 – 45 balls. Refrigerate until firm – about 1 hour.
For the chocolate coating, add the dark chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
Repeat with the milk chocolate.
Dip each peanut butter ball into the melted dark chocolate, and place back onto the baking tray. Drizzle with the milk chocolate.
Allow to set at room temperature or in the fridge before serving.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
