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
  • salt
  • 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.

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.

Saw a recipe that called for melted butter, which looked much easier than creaming the butter (and less messy). Would that work with this recipe?

I can't say that I have tried melted butter in this recipe. I would imagine the mixture would be much stickier to handle.

Will this be too sweet if I use the type of hydrogenated peanut butter that already contains sugar as opposed to the one made with just ground peanuts and oil?

Recipe was easy. Definitely add water to your hand to roll the balls. I used dark chocolate and it was thick but it was fine. The people i made them for loved them. I thought they were too sweet. Thanks for the recipe.

Filling was way too sweet and needed more peanut butter flavor. With some adjustments these will be great. Very easy to make and they look pretty.

Hi, do we need to add cream or milk in chocolate? Will the outer layer turn out to be too hard? The recipe looks easy n tempting :)

You can add a little butter to the chocolate if desired. It will keep the chocolate soft when stored, but I find I don't need to do this :)
