Ingredients

  • 10 oz Reese peanut butter chips
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • Stuff to roll them in *

Instructions

  • Place peanut butter chips into a glass mixing bowl, and put aside.
  • On stovetop, bring heavy whipping cream and butter to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • Pour hot cream mixture into bowl of peanut butter chips. Let sit for 3-5 minutes. Starting in the middle of the bowl, slowly start stirring the chips and cream until all of the “chocolate” is melted, and the cream has disappeared into it – it should be smooth.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, preferably resting right on top of the surface – this prevents a skin from forming while it cools.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least an hour or two, until it’s pretty solid.
  • Once solid, scoop out small balls (a teaspoon or so, and roll them into balls. Try to handle the ganache as quickly as possible, or it will melt.
  • Then, roll them and eat them!

Notes

* Stuff to roll them in: There are many ways to finish off truffles. For variety, you can have several different finishes available, all in their own bowls. Some options include: cocoa, confectioners/icing sugar, coconut (toasted or not), cinnamon sugar, finely chopped nuts, finely chopped chocolate covered espresso beans (especially for the dark chocolate espresso truffles, below!)
Another option is to have a bowl of melted chocolate chips ready for dipping. Melt a second bag of chips in a double boiler, or just slowly in the microwave, stirring frequently and making sure it doesn’t burn. Using a toothpick, fork, or fondue spear, gently dip each rolled truffle center into the elted chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then place on a sheet of waxed paper to cool and harden.
