    Peanut Butter and Chocolate are just 2 of my taste addictions. These truffles are fantastic, better than the peanut butter cups I used to devour while I was growing up.

      These were easy to make and I even did the melting slowly in the microwave. I will warn that I used a higher quality darker chocolate and it wasn't very good. Next year we will do them with milk or semi-sweet. We had to let the ganache come back to a slower room temp to roll as it was hard as a rock after chilling 24 hours.

      As we used to say back in the 70s, man oh man! These were heavenly. I say "were", because it took me over 6 hours to make (with chilling time) and they were gone in about 30 minutes! The mix wasn't so firm after 4 hours, took more like 5+. I also used about a cup of peanuts and ground them to a powder, for extra coverage and peanut flavor. My daughter and I had so much fun rolling the truffles. You will be tempted to lick your fingers, just remember to wash your hands before you start rolling again!

      Made these as directed for party favors at my son's wedding. They were okay. I made them again but substituted milk chocolate for the semi-sweet chips. With the milk chocolate I would give this recipe a 5 star instead of 4. This may not be fair as I am not much of a dark chocolate fan.
