Peanut Butter Honey Dark Chocolate Truffles
Using a truffle mold makes these truffles a breeze to make!
natural peanut butter
dark chocolate candy melts
peanut butter flavored candy melts
white chocolate candy melts
Honey Dark Chocolate Ganache
Soften the butter
Chop the chocolate and set it in a heatproof bowl
Put the cream and honey into a sauce pan and heat it over medium-high heat until it just begins to boil
Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate, covering as much chocolate as you can.
Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and then stir until smooth
Add softened butter.
Stir ganache until it is smooth and there are no lumps.
Place chocolate ganache in a disposable piping bag or large ziplock bag (it won't all fit at once) and cut the tip or corner
Place truffle mold on a cookie sheet and pipe ganache into the mold filling halfway
Cover the truffle mold with plastic wrap or mold mat.
Place in the refrigerator for about 1-2 hours to let the ganache partially set up
Remove truffle mold from the refrigerator and make thumbprint holes in each cavity with the end of a wooden spoon
Peanut Butter Honey Filling
Place honey and peanut butter in a microwaveable bowl
Microwave peanut butter mixture for about 30 seconds or until it is soft and liquidy
Place filling in a piping bag and fill holes, leaving room to top off with ganache
Cover peanut butter filling with a layer of ganache.
With an offset spatula, remove excess filling.
Cover mold again with plastic wrap (or truffle mat) and place in the refrigerator for 6-10 hours to harden.
Dark Chocolate Coating
An hour before dipping your truffles, move the mold to the freezer.
Pop your truffles out of the mold and place toothpicks in the tops but don't go all the way through the truffle
Melt your dipping chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave
Dip a truffle into the chocolate and then gently tap the toothpick on the side of the bowl to shake of excess chocolate
Place truffle on parchment paper to set up
As soon as the chocolate hardens, carefully twist and pull out the toothpick
Melt peanut butter and white chocolate candy melts together and place in a piping bag with a number 3 Wilton tip
Pipe on decorations, making sure to cover up the toothpick hole
Place in a cool dry location
