Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles are creamy treats that only require 3 ingredients! Dress them up in a wide variety of toppings and make them your own.
Hey guys and welcome to a new week. 👋
I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was alright. I did start developing a very annoying cold to end the summer, so, that hasn’t been fun. But, otherwise, pretty nice.
Despite my annoying cold, I did manage to make some truffles.
Creamy, chocolaty truffles that only need three ingredients and zero baking.
My kind of treat.
Those Three Ingredients You Need:
- Chocolate chips
- Creamy peanut butter
- Whipped topping
To Make Truffles: In a microwave safe bowl, melt your chocolate chips until smooth. Do this in 30 second intervals, to prevent them from burning.
Once melted, stir in the peanut butter. I used a regular creamy peanut butter. Try to avoid a natural peanut butter, due to the excess oil. It could affect the texture of the truffles.
Give the mixture approx 5-8 minutes to cool, then, stir in the whipped topping. Whipped Topping = Cool Whip or brand equivalent. If you are looking for a whipped topping without a whole laundry list of ingredients, try TruWhip!
Refrigerate your batter for at least an hour to firm up. You can leave it in longer, or even, overnight, if desired. To firm it up quickly, place in the freezer for about 40-50 minutes.
Once set, form the batter into round balls. Coat in desired toppings and place on a flat rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
You can eat them immediately or place back into the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them.
