How to make white chocolate peanut butter balls
First, you will make the peanut butter mixture.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, cane sugar, salt, coconut flour, and powdered sugar until combined.
The batter will be sticky, but not too sticky that you cannot form it into balls.
My tip here is to use a mini cookie scoop to make the mess less!
Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Simply scoop the peanut butter batter out and place each scoop on the baking sheet.
Do not worry about perfect little balls yet – after chilling the batter you can roll them again with your hands to form the shape again.
Once the peanut butter balls have chilled, it’s time for the fun part – dipping them in white chocolate!
Melt the white chocolate baking chips until smooth.
The easiest way to do this is in a microwave safe bowl, just be careful not to burn the chocolate.
Check and stir the chocolate every 20 – 30 seconds, until smooth.
Once melted, it’s time to dip the peanut butter balls.
Roll each ball as necessary to form the shape, then drop in the white chocolate.
Use a spoon to totally cover the ball with chocolate, then quickly remove the truffle with a fork.
Tap the fork on the edge of the mixing bowl to remove any excess chocolate, then use a toothpick to slide the peanut butter ball back on to the baking sheet.
Top each ball with flaked sea salt as you go.
Do not wait until the end, as you want the salt to stick while the chocolate is still melted and not hardened.
This adds the perfect salty sweet contrast that really makes the flavor of these white chocolate peanut butter balls stand out!
Once you are finished dipping the peanut butter balls, you should have some white chocolate left over.
This is what you can use to do that pretty drizzle over the tops!
Let the peanut butter balls chill in the fridge until the chocolate is set, around 15 minutes.
Warm the remaining white chocolate and place in a small ziploc bag.
Cut a small hole in the corner tip of the bag, and drizzle the white chocolate over the tops of the peanut butter balls.
Return to the fridge until totally hardened.
What to top peanut butter truffles with
Make these your own!
Switch up the toppings to whatever sounds good.
Just make sure you sprinkle the toppings immediately after dipping so that they stick to the chocolate before it hardens.
- crushed up oreos
- chopped nuts
- flaked coconut
How to store peanut butter balls
Store any leftover peanut butter balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week, or in the freezer for a month!
