This easy, unbaked dessert is rich and decadent. If you are craving chocolate, this recipe is easier to make than fudge, and just as good!

Makes about 24 small truffles.


  • 1/2 c creamy style peanut butter
  • 1/4 c softened unsalted butter
  • 2/3 c powdered sugar
  • 6 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 c peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/3 c dry coconut flakes


  1. In a medium bowl, blend the peanut butter and butter until well combined
  2. Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla. Stir well; then use clean hands to knead until well-incorporated.
  3. Break off small portions of dough and roll in your palms, making 1-inch balls.
  4. Place peanuts in a small bowl and coconut in another small bowl. Roll each ball in peanuts, pressing them in. Then roll in coconut. Place finished truffles in a single layer on a platter.
  5. Cover platter with foil and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. (Truffles may also be placed in a freezer container, using wax paper between layers, and frozen until served.)
