Robin's Special Truffles

Submitted by Robin S.
Chester, Virginia

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. smooth peanut butter
1/2 c. half-and-half

On top of stove carefully melt the chocolate chips (or use a microwave oven). They melt quickly. Remove from heat and beat in peanut butter then add the half-and-half a little at a time, beating after each addition.

Chill this for about 1 1/2 hours. Form into small balls and roll in one or all of the following: coconut, ground almonds or other nut, sprinkles (colored and/or chocolate), cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar.

Makes about 3 dozen.

Children can help by doing the rolling into balls and adding the garnishes. They can be put in little candy papers, placed on an attractive tray and given as a gift or served for special events. To me, they taste very European, probably because they aren't too sweet and partly because they are very creamy. This recipe will be keeper!

  • Easy to make

  • Try using milk chocolate instead of dark - it'll lighten the flavor a bit.
