These peanut butter truffles are a TOUCHDOWN! They didn’t last long at all. In fact, Chris and Adalyn were watching over me just hoping I’d mess up and pass them one sooner. If you’re a fan of peanut butter, try these yummy no bake peanut butter bars.

When it comes to serving guests on game day, it’s easy to get stuck serving wings, chips and dips, this weekend I decided to mix things up with these perfectly sweet and salty truffles. Of course, you don’t need to make them into the football shapes, you can just roll them into balls and then dip them in chocolate. But where’s the fun in that?!

You just need a few simple ingredients to make these fun truffles!

To Make These Peanut Butter Truffles, You Will Need

  • Creamy Peanut Butter – Do not use natural.
  • Butter – Salted or unsalted, your preference.
  • Heavy Cream – Also known as whipping cream.
  • Vanilla – Pure is preferable over imitation. Homemade vanilla is my go to.
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioners’ sugar it’s fine texture makes these so creamy. If you don’t have powdered sugar, you can pulse white granulated sugar in a food processor until fine.
  • Milk Chocolate Chips – Milk chocolate, semi-sweet or dark chocolate! Bakers’ melting chocolate also works well.

How to Make Peanut Butter Truffles

  1. Combine Filling – Combine peanut butter, butter, cream, and vanilla. Add powdered sugar and blend until completely creamy.
  2. Refrigerate – Refrigerate dough 1+ hours.
  3. Make Balls – Roll 1″ dough balls between your hands and roll it like dough on the two sides to form football shapes.
  4. Cover in Chocolate – Melt your chocolate according to instructions and dip, allowing excess to drip before placing them on parchment paper.
  5. Refrigerate to set.
  6. Optional: Make Footballs – Using a small tube of icing (not in a can, air bubbles can be an issue), add lines to create footballs.
