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.

These are so good. I really ground up the peanuts to coat them or they wouldn't stick. Fabulous!

VERY NICE! I subbed half the cream with corn syrup for tad more sweetness, perfect for us that way.

I actually found this recipe because I had left over heavy cream and pecans from a failed cookie recipe and WOW these are amazing. Extremely easy to make, used regular vs chunky peanut butter and pecans instead of peanuts. I love love love them. 1/2 c is per truffle bascially. I used about an entire 4.5 ounce bag of chopped pecans. I loved it with semi sweet chocolate chips. Regular wouldve been tp sweet. If you eve rhad muddy buddies (puppy chow) its kind of a similar flavor. I will definitely make these again. I made them a little bigger than pictures so 40 became 25 but it makes perfect sense. The consistency of the mix was also perfect after 4 hours in the fridge.

VERY GOOD! Like a rich fudge with a hit of PB. Not too sweet. Is a nice, firm center that holds its shape well.

INCREDIBLE!! peanut butter and chocolate are two of my addictions, too, so I was really excited to find this - I made them to take to a gathering hosted by a fellow peanut butter addict. They are utterly delicious. I love the salty, creamy, nutty, bitter chocolate combination - nothing seems to dominate the other flavours. I didn't have a problem with the mixture getting firm enough, I could just use a teaspoon to make blobs which I rolled until smooth, then into the chopped peanuts.

This recipe was such a hit. Only problem was that no one knew they were peanut butter. lol. Only thing I suggest is increasing peanut butter up to 1 cup. Other than that it was a huge success :D Thank you for posting!

These truffles had lots of fans over the holidays from my loved ones. I made a few kinds of them, and must see these were not my favorite of the bunch. Just a personal preference, but I thought the semi sweet chocolate was not sweet enough for the peanut butter. Still good, and this was the favorite of many family members. Thanks for posting!
