Follow these simple steps below and you will have some peanut butter truffles for the entire family to enjoy in no time at all.
Mix together peanut butter and brown sugar. This should make a dough. If too wet add a little more brown sugar, if too dry add a little more peanut butter.
Place dough into each dome mold. Place in the freezer for one hour. Once solid it’s time to dip them in the peanut butter candy melts.
If you do not have a mold you can shape these by hand into balls and then freeze them on a baking sheet.
Remove truffles from the molds once they are solid.
Melt peanut butter candy melts as directed. Dip the peanut butter truffles into the peanut butter candy melts.
Let excess drip off and place on parchment paper to dry. Melt the chocolate wafers and drizzle with a spoon over the top of the truffles. Let dry.
Don’t have everything you need on hand to make this recipe? Here are some of my favorite tried and true.
- “Other” type of butter – instead of using peanut butter, you can always try a different kind of butter like sunflower or almond butter.
- Use actual peanut butter – if you don’t have the melts on hand, then sub with real peanut butter.
- Dairy-free – if you have a dairy allergy in your family, you can use a dairy-free chocolate wafer option.
It’s nice to be able to have substitutions for ingredients. This recipe also calls for brown sugar, if you want to make a “lighter” version of this recipe, then use the light brown sugar you can find on the grocery store shelves.
Do you want to change up this easy peanut butter truffle recipe and make it your own? Here are some ways that you can do that!
- White chocolate – if you don’t want to use regular chocolate for these truffles, then it’s time to whip out the white chocolate. Now, these will be a real treat!
- Salted caramel– for a fun and tasty treat on top, add salted caramel to the top of your truffles!
- Add candy inside – take these truffles to the next level and add candy (M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces) inside of the truffle. That extra crunch is amazing!
