Peanut butter truffles are the perfect and simple sweet gift to give at the holidays. Easy to make with few ingredients. Peanut butter, Ghirardelli chocolate drizzle, and brown sugar inside for a simple holiday treat.
With very few ingredients including peanut butter candy melts from sweet tooth fairy and some brown sugar they come together pretty easy. I like to make these peanut butter truffles simply because I can make a bunch and gift them.
My first step is to mix brown sugar and peanut butter together. Yes, it’s that simple just two ingredients on the inside. What I love is that this is gluten free as well.
I place it into a small dome mold. I like to use the mold and freeze the dough as this is easier to shape. Hand rolling the peanut dough can get quite messy.
I like to freeze them for about an hour and then pop them out. Roll them in the peanut butter candy melts by sweet tooth fairy. Then let cool and drizzle the chocolate on top.
I make the peanut butter candy melts as directed on the package. I find that the sweet tooth fairy are easier to melt so I prefer them. A spoon and a knife is what I use to dip but a skewer can work as well.
Once the brown sugar peanut butter dough is rolled into candy melts the truffle is ready. You can place them in the fridge to keep cold. I like to keep them in an air tight container in the freeze.
When ready to serve a day before I bring them to temperature in the fridge then set them out. The peanut truffles are great for gifting and for serving at holiday gatherings.
These cookie dough style truffles can also be drizzled with white chocolate, salted caramel, and even sprinkles. I prefer to drizzle mine with a Ghirardelli’s chocolate either milk or dark chocolate.
