America's Test Kitchen - Peanut Butter Truffles

  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons salted dry-roasted peanuts chopped coarse, plus 20 peanut halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Line a large plate with parchment paper.
  • Stir sugar, peanut butter, cream cheese, chopped peanuts, and vanilla in bowl until uniform.
  • Roll mixture into twenty 1/2 inch balls; space balls evenly apart on prepared plate. Freeze, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  • Microwave chocolate and oil in bowl, covered, at 50 percent power, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 2-4 minutes.
  • Using a fork, pick up 1 ball and dip in chocolate to coat, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl.
  • Return ball to plate, and immediately place peanut half on top. Repeat with remaining balls.
  • Freeze balls uncovered, until chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes.
