Christmas candy making started in full swing yesterday! These are some of our favorites
Peanut Butter Truffles
3 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
10 oz dark chocolate chips
Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar. Roll into 1 inch balls and refrigerate until firm.
Melt the dark chocolate chips either with a double boiler or in the microwave. If using the microwave method (my preferred) don’t walk away. Only heat 30 seconds at a time and stir until all of the chocolate is melted.
Carefully dip the truffles into the chocolate using a fork to remove them and let them sit on a silpat lined cookie sheet to firm up. I put mine in the fridge or freezer to harden and then transfer to a container. Store in the refrigerator.
