Peanut Butter Truffles
Is there a person on this planet who doesn’t love a well-made peanut butter truffle???
–okay. Aside from the peanut allergy folks. But hey– you can always use Biscoff instead! Or almond butter if you’re not allergic to all nuts :)
Note that I said a well-made peanut butter truffle. That’s very important.
Because I have eaten my share of gross peanut butter truffles, so I know they’re out there. Who else knows what I’m talking about?? The gloppy filling that sticks to your mouth… usually not sweet enough… and that weird brand of peanut butter sort of has a funky taste. Not good.
When I eat a peanut butter truffle, I hold my breath and cross my fingers that it has a smooth and creamy filling (but not too soft!) and a sweet, Reese’s-esque taste. I think the key to all of that is using the right amount of powdered sugar. Too much makes the filling stiff, dry, and overly sweet. But too little makes it gloppy and not sweet enough.
These truffles are the good kind.
In fact, they’re better than the good kind, because they also come with a surprise!
This recipes hails from one of my new favorite blogger cookbooks: 12 Days of Christmas With Six Sisters’ Stuff: Recipes, Traditions, Homemade Gifts, and So Much More. And here’s the surprise ingredient: graham cracker crumbs!
So there’s a little twisty twist for ya.
I actually loved how the graham crackers played a part in these truffles. It adds a subtle crunch and changes the flavor just a bit too. In fact, it almost tastes like a nutter butter smothered in chocolate! Good call, Six Sisters, good call.
If these peanut butter truffles are a reflection of the rest of the recipes in this book, my holiday season just got a lot yummier. 12 Days of Christmas With Six Sisters’ Stuff is full of gorgeous, full-length photos (despite the fact that I picked, like, the one recipe in the book with a small photo), creative recipes, and fun gift and craft ideas all geared towards the holidays.
You can order a copy of 12 Days of Christmas With Six Sisters’ Stuff: Recipes, Traditions, Homemade Gifts, and So Much More on Amazon. But until it arrives, how about some peanut butter truffles to tide you over?
I hope you love this recipe as much as we did!
