Yesterday I got a craving to make something delicious, and remembered a recipe for chocolate peanut butter truffles I'd recently found through one of the baking blogs I follow. And I had a great excuse to make them, as well - friends had invited us to dinner and hadn't given us any specific instructions regarding what to bring. They were a huge success! Quite delicious, and fairly easy to make, because they only include three ingredients: chocolate (I used a mix of milk and semi-sweet chocolate), peanut butter, and cream cheese. Here's a closer-up photo:
Let me note that if we owned a melon baller, these would have been a snap. We don't, so I spent many minutes trying to figure out how to get the right shape. Measuring spoons, metal spoons, plastic spoons, tin foil, and plastic wrap all failed, so I finally just dug in there and shaped spheres with my (clean) hands. Which explains the odd shapes and irregular sizes...though I assure you this didn't interfere at all with their general yumminess! I coated half in powdered sugar and half in cocoa powder. And happily, we still have a few left over from the dinner party, so we can still enjoy a truffle or two today!
You can find the recipe here. Enjoy!
