I love this recipe, it's way healthier than regular truffles and the delicious combo of peanut butter and chocolate is a total winner!

  • Refrigerate mixture, stirring every 5 minutes, until truffle mixture is firm yet sticky and soft enough to shape, about 15 minutes.

I didn't have vanilla paste so I used a dash of vanilla extract instead. This was a simple, delicious truffle recipe! Read More

these are utterly delicious. I made them when I had a sever chocolate craving and one of the best recipe finds I made yet. I only had enough peanut butter for a half a recipe and cannot wait to make a full recipe. It did take longer to 15 minutes in the fridge to be able to firm the balls but who cares they are phenomenal Read More

These tasted great once I made them correctly. I ruined a whole batch before I had success. I only made half a batch and it overcooked at 5 minutes. The 2nd time I stopped at 4 minutes. Read More

I did add the butter that was listed as optional. Subbed a dash of pure vanilla extract for the vanilla bean paste as I've never had any other recipe call for that. Next time I will try grinding the coconut flakes before rolling the truffles. I think I would enjoy a more fine finish and it would look more decadent. Read More
