All six of us girls are huge peanut butter and chocolate fans! If a table full of desserts was sitting in front of us, anything with chocolate and peanut butter would be gone in seconds! These yummy truffles rank right up there. They are packed full of mini Reese's peanut butter cups and crushed up Nutter Butter cookies. They are adapted from our Oreo Cookie Truffles which have been another family favorite dessert. We just swapped out the Oreos with Nutter Butters and added our favorite candy bar!
Reese's Nutter Butter Cookie Truffles Recipe
16 ounces Nutter Butter Cookies
8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups, each one quartered
12 ounces milk chocolate chips
3/4 tablespoon shortening
1 tablespoon sprinkles (optional for top)
Blend the Nutter Butter cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Then break up the cream cheese into chunks and blend that together with the crumbs in the food processor until well blended. Remove blade or transfer dough to another bowl. Gently fold in the quartered Reese's peanut butter cups. I used the very small mini Reese's that come unwrapped. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper. Stick in the freezer for about 30 to 40 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Dip the frozen balls into the melted chocolate. Cover them completely with chocolate, then lift up and gently tap to remove the excess chocolate. I used a plastic fork with the two middle tines broken out. Set back onto the cookie sheet covered in waxed paper. Immediately add the sprinkles before the chocolate sets up. The chocolate will set up quickly because the balls are so cold from being in the freezer.
Makes about 35 to 40 truffles
