Fudgy-Truffles

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  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.)
