Quick Peanut Butter "truffles"

Total Time
Prep 7 mins
Cook 2 mins

Very sweet treat with only three ingrediets. Because they are so rich, this recipe only makes eight. If your chips are old, a tiny bit of butter will help them melt more smoothly.


  1. Melt chips and peanut butter in microwave for 1 minute.
  2. Combine well with spoon; melt an additional 20 seconds.
  3. Stir in powdered sugar; heat an additional 30-60 seconds (just until the mixture is pliable like playdough when stirred).
  4. Knead each teaspoon of truffle for a few seconds before rolling into a ball to avoid cracks.
  5. If you are a chocolate person, these would probably be good dipped in chocalte; or rolled in nuts or powdered sugar, or even sugar sprinkles- I like them plain.

Very "YUMMO" So very easy to make too! I doubled the recipe, adding a bit more powdered sugar as well, and opted to roll them in a combo of leftover semi-sweet chocolate chips and salted peanuts...they were AWESOME!! Needless to say this one's a keeper ~ Thank you Japan bound!

Quick, rich and easy! The chips melted nicely in the microwave. I did need to add another 1/2 cup powdered sugar to make it thicker. I took your suggestion and rolled some in powdered sugar, some in chocolate powder, some in sprinkles. I had to put them in the freezer to keep everyone from eating them quicker than I could roll them. I made another batch as everyone like them. This will go on my Christmas cookie platter. Thanks Japan Bound for a great recipe.
