{No Bake} Chocolate & Peanut Butter Truffles

March 28, 2012
>Spring break continues.  It's an interesting thing, having kids in school.  At first, it's "Yay, spring break!". Then, a day or so later, it's "Argh! Spring break! How do I keep my kids from killing each other and driving me insane!?"  We decided to bake.  Or, in this case..no bake some truffles.

This recipe is another that has been in my possession forever.  It looked yummy, so, I clipped it from a magazine and then, it sat, and sat, and sat, in my recipe file.  Until this week! 

These are extremely easy and fabulous and yes, easy, enough for kids to make ( with some assistance). They can be messy, but, that' the fun part, right?

I did the melting, but, we both did the shaping and the kids coated them with powdered sugar, sprinkles and coconut.  They had quite a good time and then, dove in and gobbled them up.  Fun was had by all.

1pkg (8 squares) Semi Sweet Baking Chocolate ( I used Baker's)
1/2 cup peanut butter ( creamy or crunchy)
8 oz whipped topping
Coating suggestions: sprinkles, coconut, grated chocolate, powdered sugar, crushed cookies

Melt chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently.  Once melted, add peanut butter and mix completely.   Set chocolate mixture aside and cool until room temperature.   Once cooled, mix in whipped topping completely.   Put in fridge for 1 hour.
Scoop truffle mixture with teaspoon or melon baller, then, shape into balls.  Roll in desired coatings.  Keep refrigerator.
Makes 20-30 truffles, depending on size.
