Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles make a delicious treat to answer that chocolate and peanut butter craving!


The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is one of my family’s very favorites and these homemade chocolate peanut butter truffles get rave reviews when I make them. You just can’t beat the rush as you bite through the hard chocolate coating and get into the sweet, creamy center of peanut butter.

Chocolate peanut butter truffles are fun to make with children, too. My son loves to shape the peanut butter mixture and dip them into the chocolate.

Here’s my Chocolate peanut butter truffles recipe. I hope you love it.

    1. ROFL – I bet you could freeze some for later, too. Now that I think of it, I may just have to make another batch to test that freezing theory out (yeah – just for testing purposes. Not to gobble up by any means!)

  1. Robyn my hubby thinks peanut butter should be it’s own food group!! he would LOVE these!! I make something similar at Christmas, I may need to try your recipe this year!

  3. Oh boy these are trouble!!! Especially when I’m trying to cut back on my chocolate intake (it’s reached almost an obsession/addiction to get me through finals) but these look too good to resist!!! I might have to try them! And eat them all by myself too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. David just asked me to make some PB truffles and then BAM, I see this in your sidebar while looking at your spicy shrimp wrap recipe. Perfect timing! Can’t wait to make these guys!

    You have such a gorgeous site, Robyn. I appreciate all of your hard work in putting the post, pictures and organized thoughts together. You rock!
