How to Make Reeses Peanut Butter Truffles

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl; melt peanut butter chips in the microwave for 30 second to 1 minute. Stir till smooth.
  3. Add butter, cream, vanilla..stir till smooth. Slowly add sugar till holds its shape. About 3 cups. It will be stiff like dough.
  4. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Roll into 1 inch balls; place on wax paper covered tray. Refrigerate another 30 minutes.
  5. In another bowl; melt chocolate chips with shortening in microwave 30 to 60 seconds. Stir till smooth.
  6. 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.
