Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles

Hello,  it’s Melissa from Baking Makes Things Better.  I thought with the weather heating up I would share with you an easy truffle recipe.  These Peanut Butter Truffles are a perfect after dinner nibble to have at Summer barbecues and with Christmas just around the corner they would make delicious edible gifts.

330g white chocolate, chopped
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
200g dark chocolate, chopped
50g milk chocolate, chopped

Place the white chocolate, peanut butter, cream and salt in a heatproof, microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth and combined.  Refrigerate until firm, between 1 to 3 hours. Line a tray with baking paper.  Roll teaspoonful’s of the peanut butter mixture into balls and place on the tray.  Freeze until firm. Place the dark chocolate in a heatproof microwave bowl and heat, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.  Using fork, dip half of each truffle into the melted chocolate, shaking off the excess.  Leave the truffles on the forks to dry.  Once set, remove from the forks then dip the other half into the chocolate.  Place on the tray to set. Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave.  Spoon the chocolate into a plastic bag.  Snip off one corner of the bag and pipe the chocolate over the truffles.  Refrigerate until set before serving.
