Directions Step-By-Step

1
Scald cream in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and chill.
2
Combine white chocolate and peanut butter together in a mixing bowl and blend together.
3
Add chilled whipping cream and continue blending at high speed until a smooth consistency is achieved. Pour mixture into a suitable container and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours, to allow mixture to set.
4
Using a melon baller, or a number 70 scoop, form the mixture into balls. Place balls on a sheet pan and into the refrigerator to firm up. Melt the dark
chocolate over a double boiler. Gently dip each ball in the melted chocolate so that it's fully coated. Decorate with crushed peanuts. Keep truffles in the refrigerator until required.

    Your recipe calls for dark bittersweet chocolate. Would this be similar to Baker's Chocolate chunk chocolate or a dipping chocolate? If it is a dipping chocolate where can I find that in dark bittersweet. I can only find the traditional chocolate for dipping.Thanks in advance for any tips you can offer!

    you can use the dipping chocolate if you want to-- I have used that before- The bitter sweet chocolate is the Bakers Chocolate,, It is really bitter,so my family perfers the Chocolate bark,,, I have also rolled them in cocoa powder or powdered sugar..

    Hope this helps!!

    It does, but when you use the Baker's brand did it set up like the dipping chocalate? Thanks!
