Rich and decadent 4-ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles take minutes to make, and minutes to be devoured! | Broma Bakery

Happy Monday, everyone! Today is my last full day in Boston before heading back to the tundra that is Michigan. It’s been a long three and a half weeks, and I’m so ready to get back into my kitchen! I have some great things planned for the next few weeks, and can’t wait to share them.

Up today are my peanut butter truffles. They are made with 4 ingredients and taste like a million bucks. They’re a pajama recipe. You know?

Oh, you don’t know? A pajama recipe is one of those recipes that make people say”wow, you’re so fancy,” when really you just stirred a few things together while in your pajamas.

Et voilà.

Yes I just made up this term. Between this and crookers, I think I’m on a roll.

This week I had the pleasure of meeting two talented bloggers-Liz and Floating Kitchen and Karishma at Tang & Spice. It was so great to meet both of them, and I highly recommend you check out their blogs. I’m dying to make Liz’s Caramel Chocolate Clusters. And Karishma’s Mushroom Bolognese is calling my name!

Enjoy the beginnings of your weeks. My advice this week is to take a few moments for yourself. It can be hard during the winter to find time to appreciate things when we’re so caught up in work, school, and frankly not freezing our toes off. Work out. Cook a nice dinner with your significant other. Or make these truffles!

I’ll be back on Friday with more sugar 🙂

RECIPE

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Ingredients

    For the truffles

    • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 3 cups confectioner's sugar
    • 1 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1 cup peanut butter

    For the coating

    • 1/3 cup peanuts, finely chopped
    • 3/4 cup cocoa powder

    Directions

    1. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each time until the chocolate is smooth and melted (heating in intervals will ensure you don’t burn the chocolate). Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat together the softened cream cheese and 1 cup of the confectioner’s sugar. Add in the melted chocolate and peanut butter, beat until smooth. Last, add the remaining 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar and beat on medium speed until everything is combined. Place plastic wrap on top of the mixture and put in to the refrigerator to set for about 2 hours.
    3. Once the truffles have set, use a melon baller to scoop the mixture and shape into balls. Coat half of the recipe in chopped peanuts and half in cocoa powder. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

    Yum! I want that whole pile of truffles. Also, if you don’t get out of your pajamas until 3pm each day then every recipes is a pajama recipe. Just saying. Not that I know anyone who does that…:-). So glad we had the chance to meet up and hope to see you again soon. Safe travels back to Michigan! XO

    I LOVE the ‘pajama recipe’ concept, totally into that! Truffles with chocolate and peanut butter are always my weakness.

    Yum, yum YUM! I am all about homemade truffles so these chocolate and peanut butter ones are calling my name! Also, 5 stars on the term “pajama recipe”! So true!

    Pajama recipes are the best! I love the elegant simplicity of these truffles. The chocolate and peanut butter is pretty awesome too!

    I certainly believe these taste like a million bucks because they certainly look like a million!

    Oh Sarah, we would be such good friends “irl”. Pajama recipe! I think pretty much all my recipes are those, or at least the ones people deem are “fancy”, because I pretty much wear pajamas all day everyday. DONT JUDGE, I work from home.. it’s just really hard to want to wear like pleated khakis for my dog, you know?

    Because obviously I own pleated khakis (no.. no.. no I don’t..) but I can’t think of anything less comfortable / stylish. Yoga pants ftw. Also, these look incredible because um.. pajama recipe. Peanut butter. Chocolate. I die.

    I’m so glad you think we would irl because I totally think so too. And yeah, there’s really no reason to get out of your PJs when you work from home! Well, unless it’s for yoga pants, as you’ve said.

    “Pajama recipe” = my favorite kind of recipe. And since pajamas have elastic waistbands…totally okay to sneak one or five of these truffles before breakfast. 🙂 Can’t wait to try these!

    Yeah girl!! You better let me know what you think of them!

    Holy deliciousness! I want every single one of those truffles. Really, cooking and baking in your pajamas just makes sense…. Cause we’re really just protecting our clothes from potential messes, right?

    Oh TOTALLY! I didn’t even think about that!

    Reply

    Oh my god. I’ve been telling anyone who will listen lately that chocolate and peanut butter are hands-down THE BEST combo that exists (Sean says shrimp and cocktail sauce is better but just no) so this is like giving a drug addict crack. I’m a goner.

    Sean. Get out of here. You and Alex can go enjoy your savory foods together while Erin and I enjoy the best flavor combo the world has ever produced.

    So much good stuff right here! I love anything chocolate and peanut butter – YUM!

    Is it bad that all of my recipes are pajama recipes? At least the baked/cooked in pajamas part. Also, if you think I’m sharing these with anyone you are CRAZY. They’re all mine.

    In truth, all of mine are as well. Maybe I should change my blog name to PJ recipes with Sarah Fennel

    haha I like that term ‘pajama recipes’…I think they are the most fun recipes! These truffles look amazing Sarah, I mean we are talking chocolate & PB here! End of story! Pinned.

    Right? Could there be a more perfect combo? I don’t think so…

    Haha, I love the term pajama recipe. Then again, I feel like I do all my baking in pjs haha since it’s usually so late at night! Love how simple this is.

    Yay, it was so much fun meeting you! Hopefully I’ll be able to meet up with you again some time in the future!

    Thanks for pinning, Christina! Anything under 5 ingredients is a must make in my opinion!

    Oh man, these truffles definitely has me weak in the knees FOR SURE. Hehe, love the pajama recipe moniker. For me, it might have to be called yoga/stretchy pants recipes because that’s just what I wear every day now.

    Reply

    Heheh, thanks, Lisa! I can definitely appreciate the stretchy pants alternative. I live in Lulu leggings

    These look amazing, Sarah! Truffles have been on my list for a while but I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Now I so want to make these! PB and chocolate are always delicious together!

    3.Once the truffles have set, use a melon baller to scoop the mixture and shape into balls. Coat half of the recipe in chopped walnuts and half in cocoa powder. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

    I think you meant PEANUTS and not walnuts because walnuts are not in the list 🙂

    Love how easy and delicious these peanut butter choc truffles are. They look so moorish so if I was to make the recipe – it would not take them long to be devoured!
