Christmas: Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles. Melt some additional white chocolate and use some red and green food coloring and drizzle over the white chocolate truffles.

Peanut butter truffles with bite

Tips

  • 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.
  • Any unused chocolate, I pour onto a piece of parchment paper and let it harden, then place it in a Ziploc bag to use later.
  • I sprinkled the tops with shredded sweetened coconut, crushed peanuts, melted white chocolate, and sprinkles. Sprinkle the topping onto the freshly dipped truffle before the chocolate is completely dried.
  • I have also used color candy melts for themed parties and holidays!

How to Store

Our truffles should be stored in an airtight container. I would recommend placing 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!)
