Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter chips, divided
  • 8 ounces milk chocolate chips, melted

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Add the cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar to a bowl, and mix well, until everything is well incorporated.
  2. Then place 1/2 a cup of the peanut butter chips into the bowl, and again mix everything together.
  3. Place plastic wrap over the bowl, and refrigerate for two hours.
  4. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler.
  5. With a small ice cream scoop, take out a ball of the cream cheese mixture and dip it in the melted chocolate.
  6. With a fork, take the cream cheese ball out of the chocolate and place it on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
  7. Continue this step until all of the cream cheese mixture is finished. Refrigerate the tray for ten minutes.
  8. While the chocolate is setting on the truffles, melt the rest of the peanut butter chips over a double boiler.
  9. Once it has melted, add the peanut butter to a piping bag.
  10. Take the baking sheet out of the refrigerator. Cut a small whole in the piping bag, and pipe zig zag lines on top of the truffles, and they are ready to serve.
