Reeses Peanut Butter Truffles
I got my kids involved in these little goodies tonight. Nothing like quality time.
These are simple and great tasting.
depends how big you make them
1 - 10
bag of reeses peanut butter chips
3 - 3 1/2
1 - 10
package semi sweet chocolate chips
plus 2 teaspoons shortening
Gather ingredients..Place wax paper in baking pan. I used a jelly roll pan.
Ps: These peanut butter balls must chill for 2 hours, then another 30 minutes before coating in chocolate.
In a large bowl; melt peanut butter chips in the microwave for 30 second to 1 minute. Stir till smooth.
Add butter, cream, vanilla..stir till smooth. Slowly add sugar till holds its shape. About 3 cups. It will be stiff like dough.
Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Roll into 1 inch balls; place on wax paper covered tray. Refrigerate another 30 minutes.
In another bowl; melt chocolate chips with shortening in microwave 30 to 60 seconds. Stir till smooth.
Dip the balls in chocolate. You can roll or sprinkle with nuts, cookie crumbs, candy sprinkles.. I ground walnuts fine in my food processor. Or you can just leave as is.
