Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles on OhSweetBasil.com

Hello again! I’m Ashley from Spoonful of Flavor and I am here again to share one of my favorite treats. I know that we have a lot of chocolate and peanut butter fans around here so I’m giving you one more thing to love. Truffles are a delectable treat to enjoy no matter what the season, but I especially love to make them around the holidays. They are the perfect treat to bring to a dinner party or even package up and give as a gift. These little truffles are so irresistible that you won’t be able to stop eating them.

Creamy peanut butter filling coated with rich chocolate and sprinkled with chopped peanuts creates a simple but immensely flavorful treat. You probably already have everything that you need for these truffles in your pantry. I like to think that these little bites of chocolate and peanut butter are a more elegant and refined version of the classic chocolate peanut butter cup. They are loaded with peanut butter flavor and are a beautiful and impressive little treat!
