  • Easy, creamy peanut butter truffles recipe

    I try to keep everything on the blog authentic & natural of how we celebrate everyday life, but sometimes I have an idea I just can’t help but create & share! Last Thursday, we took a day trip to Grafton, Illinois to go eagle watching. It led us to this little restaurant that I recalled from my childhood that had a few large fishtanks that you dined next to. I was excited to take the girls there, but after just a few bites of our salads Chris & I decided it was best if we just skipped lunch. In lieu of lunch, we stopped by a darling little bakery in downtown Alton, Illinois where we enjoyed some phenomenal peanut butter truffles. They were so creamy & had just the right peanut butter to chocolate ratio. Then it hit me – these little truffles would be adorable in the shapes of footballs & despite that I was going to create them for the blog, my family would never argue with me whipping up these delectable bite sized treats.
