Great truffle recipe for kids to make or help with. Used these for school or work treats. Fast and super easy. Who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter!

I buy the mini muffin papers at the craft or grocery store and put a truffle in each paper. They can tend to melt if its too hot outside, in which case I try to keep these cold until service.


  • For about 20 truffles
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp margarine or butter
  • dash of salt
  • candy sprinkles, chopped nuts, powdered sugar for decoration


  • Stove top
  • Heat mixture in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Pour mixture into medium bowl, use a spatula to get all the chocolate from the pan.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 90 minutes or until chocolate mixture is firm.
  • Shape heaping teaspoonful of chocolate into balls (a small scoop also works if sprayed with cooking spray)
  • Gently roll each ball into choice of decorations.
  • Place truffles on a cookie sheet and refrigerate at least one hour or until firm.
  • Cover and refrigerate any leftover truffles.
  • Microwave
  • Pull all ingredients except decorations in microwavable bowl and cover with lid or plastic wrap.
  • Microwave on 50% power 3 to 4 minutes or until chocolate has softened and mixture can be stirred smooth.
  • Adjust time depending on your microwave.
  • Refrigerate mixture and finish as directed above.
