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.
