Salted-Nut Truffles
Ingredients
  • 1 7  ounce jar  marshmallow creme
  • 1  cup  creamy peanut butter
  • 1  cup  powdered sugar
  • 3/4  cup  lightly salted cocktail peanuts, finely chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  light-color corn syrup
  • 2  cups  white baking pieces or milk chocolate pieces
  • 1  tablespoon  shortening
  •  Finely chopped cocktail peanuts and/or chocolate-flavored sprinkles (jimmies) (optional)
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.
