Peanut Butter Truffles

Directions

  1. Butter the side of a medium heavy saucepan. In the saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture is boiling. Reduce heat to medium; continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in marshmallows, peanut butter, and vanilla. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Chill for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until mixture is thick and can be molded.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; place on the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and shortening. Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Dip balls, one at a time, into melted chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off balls. Place on a wire rack set over waxed paper. If desired, sprinkle with peanuts. Let stand until chocolate is set.* Makes about 50 truffles.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If desired, when chocolate is set, drizzle with a little melted milk chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is set.

Layer truffles between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

These are much better then the ones I use to make that used lots of confectioners sugar. Also, several reviewers stated to use half of the 12.5 oz can of evaporated milk, but it does come in a 5 oz can, I've bought the Great Value (Wal-Mart) brand as well as Carnation so it does come in the 5 oz size.

I learned a hard lesson when I put chocolate covered cake balls on a wire rack. They stuck to the rack and the bottom pulled off when I lifted them.

I love this! I made a mistake in melting the marshmallows and you only need less than half a can of milk as they are 12.50 oz.

I love It! I did make the mistake of melting the marshmallows with the milk and sugar and you must know a can of milk is 12.5 oz so you need less than half a can. Catherine in Colorado

The recipe is written wrong! If you make it as it is written, you will end up with a soft 'toffee' like substance. Once it is cooled, If you add an EXTRA 2 cups of peanut butter and about 1/2 a cup of icing sugar you can make it work! If you find it is still too 'sticky', add a bit more icing sugar. Make sure you cool it down! Dont be afraid to get your hands in there to mix the cooled goo with the extra peanut butter and icing sugar :)Before I figured this out I had thrown away 3 batches of the recipe :(

Mine turned out the opposite, too runny. I couldn't roll them into balls, it was a mess. It tasted too good to waste so I layered the chocolate then the peanut butter and drizzled the remaining chocolate on top. After it cooled I broke it into pieces. Not exactly what I was wanting but none the less they tasted good.

Followed direction exactly and the mixture came out too crumbly to shape into balls. Disappointed!
