Making the Peanut Butter Cup Truffles
(scroll to the bottom of the post for the full recipe!)
Peanut Butter Balls
To make the peanut butter balls, combine creamy peanut butter, (or crunchy if you want some texture!) softened cream cheese, and a little maple syrup until evenly combined.
Gradually mix in melted vanilla + coconut flour until dough is smooth.
Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Now, stick the balls in the freezer to chill for about 15 minutes while you melt the chocolate.
You can use whatever chocolate you wish for the drizzle! Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and semisweet chocolate are all great choices.
We typically go with semisweet chocolate to give these balls that signature peanut butter cup flavor, but totally your choice!
Melt 4 oz chocolate (in the microwave or double-boiler) and immediately drizzle over chilled peanut butter truffles.
Stick the pan back in the freezer for another 5 minutes until the chocolate solidifies and they’re done! Store peanut butter truffles in the fridge until ready to serve.
Tips and Tricks for Making the Truffles
- Keep the truffles in the fridge until just before serving (they tend to melt a bit as they sit out at room temperature)
- Use parchment paper on your pan to eliminate dishes
- Don’t skip the dough chilling step! It makes it much easier to decorate and drizzle them in chocolate without a mess.
- If you want more of a chocolate kick, feel free to dip the truffles in chocolate rather than drizzling them
Honest to goodness, they taste JUST like a peanut butter cup!
The intense peanut butter flavor, the luxurious soft texture, the thick drizzle of chocolate…just all around dreamy!
