Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Happy July! I can’t believe its July already…especially since my tan is seriously lacking for July….Anyways….I found a yummy baking recipe I wanted to share with y’all! My two favorite things are chocolate and peanut butter so this recipe is perfect for me!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (1 bag) milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • powdered sugar or red sugar for coating/sprinkling

Instructions

In a medium sauce pan over low heat, melt together the chocolate chips, cream, and butter until the chocolate is just about fully melted, stirring constantly. Stir in the peanut butter and continue stirring over low heat until fully melted.

Pour into an 8×8 baking dish and refrigerate for 2 hours (I used a 9×9 pan since I didn’t have an 8×8)

Remove from the refrigerator and use a cookie scoop to scoop out balls of the chocolate mix. After you’ve scooped out all of the chocolate, roll each ball between your hands to shape it. Sprinkle with the red sugar or roll in powdered sugar. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes about 15 truffles, depending on the size of cookie scoop you use. I used a medium scoop.

These would be great to serve at a party or bring as a dessert. Enjoy!
