Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

I’ve been making these babies for years, ever since Adam’s first birthday when I first tried the recipe out. I have hardly done any alterations to the original recipe yet have been requested to make these for various occasions over and over. I even very good family friends of ours who would, without fail, have me make this every single time we had a potluck.

What I like to play with though, is the crushed topping these beauties are rolled in. Every time I try something different; nuts, Reese’s pieces, candy canes, powdered sugar, cocoa, biscuits…. you get the idea.

So when I was trying to come up with baked goodies to include in a gift basket for a friend, these were a no-brainer. They are yummy, look good, can be packed in an impressive display and are super easy.

Without further ado, my Chocolate Peanut Butter truffles:


250gm dark chocolate chopped

250gm milk chocolate chopped

500gm creamy peanut butter jar

340gm sweetened condensed milk

Toppings of choice; coconut, powdered sugar, cocoa, crushed nuts, crushed Reese’s pieces, miniature chocolate chips, crushed candy canes, crushed cookies….


1. Bring a saucepan half filled with water to a simmer. Place a stainless steel bowl over the simmering water.

2. Add the chocolate and peanut butter to the stainless steel bowl and stir occasionally until Β both are fully melted.

3. Add the condensed milk and whisk together. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly

4. Spread the fudge evenly on a tray. Place in the fridge for at least half an hour to chill and set.

5. Remove fudge from fridge. Take a spoonful and roll in your hands into a ball shape.

6. Roll the balls in the assorted toppings. Place in a candy foil cup.

7. Store in fridge or freezer covered until ready to serve
