- ½ cup smooth peanut butter
- 8oz of cream cheese
- ½ cup of chocolate chips (bittersweet or semi-sweet)
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- 8oz chopped semi-sweet chocolate
Step 1: Combine the Ingredients
Put the cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter to your stand mixer bowl, and mix it on medium speed until all the lumps have dissolved and the batter becomes smooth.
Add the chocolate chips to the batter and fold it in using a spatula. Cover the mixture in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
Step 2: Hand Roll Them
Line a tray with parchment paper and use an ice cream scoop or two spoons to make small balls and set them on the tray. You can use your hands to roll them to remove any edges from the balls.
Step 3: Coat It in Chocolate
Melt the chopped semi-sweet chocolate by tempering it on top of a pan of hot water. Let it cool slightly before coating your truffles.
You can line another tray with parchment paper or use the same try if you have enough space. Use a toothpick to pick up each ball and dip it completely in the melted chocolate.
Remember to not take too much time with this step, as the chocolate might harden, and tempering it a second time is a difficult task, especially in the middle of this step.
Step 4: Let the Chocolate Harden
Set aside the truffles and let them harden; you can also put it in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes to harden completely.
Step 5: Drizzle the Chocolate
Take the leftover melted chocolate and reheat or temper it again and put it in a zip lock bag; push the chocolate to one corner and cut a small hole on the edge or the corner.
Pipe the chocolate onto the truffles, use any method you prefer for decoration. Store it in the freezer until it’s time to serve your guests.
