These delicious and beautiful peanut butter truffles are sure to be a crowd pleaser.  In addition, if you have kids, they’ll enjoy helping you roll the candy in the different coatings.  Anything that goes with peanut butter will taste great.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon plus ¼ cup butter, divided
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped honey roasted peanuts or miniature semisweet chocolate chips (1)

Directions:

Line an 8-inch square pan with foil; grease foil with 1 teaspoon butter.

In a small saucepan, combine honey and remaining butter over medium heat; cook and stir until blended.  Stir in peanut butter until smooth.  Remove from heat; whisk in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla.  Spread in prepared pan.  Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or until firm.

Place peanuts in a shallow bowl.  Using foil, lift candy out of pan.  Remove foil; cut candy into 64 squares.  Roll squares into balls; roll in peanuts.  Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Notes:

(1)     The mini chocolate chips look pretty but they’re hard to work with.  You can’t just roll the candy in the chips – you have to press them into the candy.  I found that the peanuts worked best if they were chopped very fine.  I also rolled the candy in crushed m&m’s and also granola.
