These vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles are super dreamy. Rich and decadent with candy peanut butter and chocolate flavor in every chew. Seas salt on prime brightens up the wealthy flavors. I share two methods to make these truffles. Classic chocolate-covered peanut butter and a double chocolate fudge version too. Make an enormous batch to share with pals or retailer them in the freezer to nibble on everytime you need a candy deal with!..
Truffle Shape. For the double fudge truffles, I did a basic rolled and hand-dipped truffle shape. Kinda knobby and principally a sphere-ish shape, with texture. But for the pure peanut butter filling I needed something enjoyable and crowd pleasing – and in addition one thing that allowed me to maximize the peanut butter filling. So I used a donut gap baking tin to mould my truffles. You can do this technique, or attempt your personal sweet mould shape. If you wouldn’t have a candy mould, a muffin tin will work. OR you’ll be able to simply roll the filling into peanut butter “balls” – as I did with the double fudge truffles.
Truffles don’t have to be good spheres. If you like that look, go for it. But really, a textured sphere with waves of chocolate can also be so fairly. These truffles will style tremendous yummy even if they do not look candy-shop good.
This recipe incorporates powdered sugar. If you shouldn’t have powdered sugar or do not need to use that number of sweetener, you’ll be able to absolutely mess around with utilizing other sweeteners – or even omitting the sweetener altogether. If omitting the powdered sugar, the trick might be to actually let your truffle filling chill for an extended sufficient time as a way to handle the combination easily when rolling into balls. You might additionally mess around with using coconut flour as a thickening ingredient.
What do these style like? Well once I first bit into the peanut butter truffle it tasted like a very wealthy and tender peanut butter cookie, wrapped in velvety chocolate. The shiny accent of sea salt brought out all the flavors. The double fudge truffle tastes like the identical factor, solely with a brownie or chocolate cookie accent. Both variations are delicious!

These rich and dreamy chocolate truffles are crammed with a candy peanut butter combination.
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (Santa Cruz model used)
- 2 Tbsp vegan butter
- 2 Tbsp coconut sugar (or more powdered sugar)
- 2 Tbsp powdered sugar, organic
- pinch of sea salt
- Coating: 3oz vegan semi-sweet chocolate (bars or chips) – Guittard semi-sweet bars used
- Topping: coarse sea salt
- Add the peanut butter and butter to a small bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip until clean and fluffy. Add in the sugar and a pinch of salt. Whip again, simply to mix. Note: utilizing a drier peanut butter will assist you with this recipe! A watery nut butter may have extra powdered sugar to help firm things up.)
- Place the peanut butter mixture in the freezer for at the very least twenty minutes, to allow it to agency up.
- Roll the peanut butter into small balls. USed a bit more powdered sugar, if needed to handle. You can either chill the truffles as balls, or use a candy mould. I used a donut gap baking dish. Place the rolled or molded truffles back in the freezer for an additional 5-10 minutes.
- While the truffles are chilling, get your double broiler started for melting the chocolate. Pour a little bit of water in a pot and place on the range. Turn warmth to medium. Add a stainless-steel bowl over prime the pot and place the chocolate in the bowl. Using a picket spoon, stir the chocolate till absolutely melted. Turn heat to low if the bowl gets too heat. You don’t need to burn the chocolate.
- Pull the absolutely chilled and molded peanut butter truffles from the freezer. Carefully dip them within the melted chocolate and place on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Yes, this step will get a bit messy! You can both drizzle chocolate over prime the truffle as you maintain it over the bowl or rigorously roll it around in the chocolate, absolutely immersed. whatever technique you employ, just try to be swift so that the peanut butter does not start melting.
- Repeat until all of the truffles are dipped. Sprinkle sea salt over the truffles.
- Place the dipped truffles in the fridge or freezer for a couple of minutes, just to completely agency up the chocolate. You can serve these chilled or tender and melty, at room temp.
- Double Fudge Version Note: If you need to make the double fudge version, merely substitute the coconut sugar with 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder. Add the cocoa powder to the combination when you’re beating the powdered sugar into the peanut butter and butter. Sweeten to taste – if you’d like your filling a bit on the candy aspect, add more powdered sugar. For a more bitter flavor, add much less. You might even add more cocoa powder for a bolder bitter/darkish chocolate flavor. The similar technique applies for the chilling and rolling truffles. Chill until handling is straightforward and if wanted, add a number of pinches more powdered sugar that will help you deal with the filling.
