Peanut Butter Cup Truffles

Hey guys! The easiest most delicious no bake recipe for you today guys using only 5 ingredients! The centre of these truffles is essentially the filling in peanut butter cups but on a whole new level, it is sooooo good! Also gluten free!

I made 18, 20g balls out of my mixture. You can make these a little smaller and get up to 25 truffles. Just weigh your final dough and divide by the amount of truffles you want to make. Weigh each ball with that amount to make equal uniform truffles.

I used half milk and half dark chocolate to coat my truffles, this balance was perfect! Feel free to use whatever chocolate you like. White chocolate would be so so nice too! I used a mini Reeses cup cut in half to decorate some of my truffles but this isn’t necessary. You could even use some chopped peanuts on some.

I have added the coconut oil down as optional. I use this in the chocolate coating. this creates a nice glossy shell for the truffles and also helps the chocolate not bloom. If you can get a hold of it don’t worry they will still work out fine!
