My family and I are peanut butter freaks! My son will eat a PBJ sandwich everyday if I let him. It seems like we are all arguing over the last peanut butter cookie, reeses cup and these peanut butter truffles. They are easy to make and super delicious!
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 oz chocolate candy coating
In a large mixing bowl, blend melted butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter and vanilla extract until fully combined.
Scoop balls and roll them into your hands, making about a 1-1/2 inch sized ball. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and repeat until all filling is used.
Refrigerate for about one hour.
Melt chocolate according to package directions. Using a toothpick, dip bottoms into melted chocolate (leaving some of the peanut butter tops exposed). Place on parchment paper and allow to set.
If desired, when chocolate has set, pinch the toothpick marks closed and pat until smooth. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
