  • mixing bowls
  • spoon

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups peanut butter candy melts sweet tooth fairy brand is what i used
  • 10 chocolate flavored candy wafers ghirardelli brand is what i used

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Store in air tight container in the fridge. If you need to keep longer they can be placed in the freezer for up to a month.

Notes

Is your peanut butter filling sticking? When peanut butter is too cold, it's easy for it to stick. If you let the peanut butter sit at room temperature for a little bit, it will not be as sticky. 
You can shape these truffles with your hands into ball shapes if you do not have a mold. Then place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and into the freezer.
