Chocolate and Peanut Butter Truffles

Yum
The Oscars are this weekend and I plan on putting my feet up and watching it with these lovely Chocolate and Peanut Butter Truffles to keep me company.  Let's face it, the speeches are long and not all my favorite movies or actors will win so why not get something to make the night a little bit more enjoyable. These truffles are so easy to make and you can't beat the combinations of chocolate and peanut butter. Yes, once you start making these little beauties, you will find any excuse to make them again and again.


 Ingredients:
1 package (l pound) of Nutter Butter Cookies
1 (8oz) brick of softened plain cream cheese

1 bag (12oz) of semisweet or milk chocolate
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup finely chopped roasted salted nuts (use unsalted nuts if you don't like a little salt with sweet

  Directions:
In a food processor crush Nutter Butter Cookies.  Remove 2-3Tbs of crushed cookies until later. Next add cream cheese. Mix in food processor until well combined.  Chill for 20 minutes in fridge.

 Roll cookie mixture in to small olive size balls and place on a baking tray.  Chill tray with prepared balls for 15-20 minutes.  Prepare melted chocolate for dipping with chocolate and butter over a double boiler.  Dip a few balls at a time into chocolate.

Finely chop some nuts and mix with reserved crushed cookies. Place dipped balls on wax or parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with crush cookie/nut mixture.  Allow to chill until chocolate is set.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.  Enjoy.

  8. Yes, yes and yes again! I'll have to make a small batch because I'm the only one here that would eat them and the urge to devour them all would be too great.
