Christmas Truffle Recipe! Easy &No-Bake!

What can I say, there is something about chocolate and peanut butter that just completes me! I can say “no” to a lot of desserts, but never to a peanut butter treat!

When you are thinking about your holiday baking list, you don’t want to miss out on these Christmas Truffles.

They are also a great project to make with your kids! Their little hands are the perfect sizes to roll the little peanut butter balls! You may want to help them out with the dipping of the chocolate, but the will love getting creative and decorating them with sprinkles!

Ingredients / Shopping List

  • Peanut butter – you can use creamy or chunky if you want some peanut pieces!
  • Powdered sugar
  • Butter – I typically use unsalted butter
  • White chocolate – I use melting chocolate (like a baking bar or bark) or candy wafers
  • Sprinkles, melted milk chocolate, coconut, or chopped nuts

Here are some useful kitchen tools that will help make your baking life a lot easier! As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Cookie Scoop – this makes it much easier to get the perfect size scoop of the dough. This is a set of 3 so you always will have the right size!

Chocolate Dipping Tool – I love this set! If you have ever had to fish a truffle out of chocolate you will understand! This makes it SO much easier!

Silicone Baking Mat: – This is a kitchen MUST HAVE! I use them for everything… making cookies, sheet pan dinners and so much more!

Christmas Truffles bite

Tips

  • Be sure to sprinkle the topping onto the freshly dipped truffle before the chocolate is completely dried.
  • This recipe makes about 18-20 bites, depending on how big you roll them.
  • Don’t worry about the bites not being in perfect ball shapes. Once they are chilled, you can reshape them right before dipping them into the chocolate. You can also dip them twice for a thicker shell.
  • Melt half of the chocolate to use first. Depending on the size of your truffles you may not need an entire pound.

How to Store

Store truffles in an airtight container. Place wax paper (or parchment paper between layers to prevent them from sticking together.)

They can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and in the freezer for up to 2 months. (Just thaw frozen truffles in the fridge overnight!)
