Salted-Nut Truffles

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet or tray with waxed paper. In a large microwave-safe bowl combine marshmallow creme and peanut butter. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 30 seconds or until mixture is slightly softened; stirring once. Stir in powdered sugar, the 3/4 cup finely chopped peanuts, and the corn syrup until well combined.
  2. Shape the peanut butter mixture into 1-inch balls. Place balls on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl microwave white baking pieces and shortening on 50 percent power (medium) about 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring twice.
  4. Using a fork, dip balls into melted mixture, allowing excess mixture to drip back into bowl. Return balls to the prepared baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle truffles with additional finely chopped peanuts and/or chocolate sprinkles. Let stand until set. If necessary, chill to set. Place truffles in gift container; cover.
