I’ve never been a chocolate girl. But peanut butter and chocolate together? Now that’s my idea of a true treat!
For as long as I can remember, my favorite candy has been Reese’s peanut butter cups. I still do love them–and eat them occasionally–but I admit, it’s hard to enjoy some of my old favorites when I have this nagging feeling that I’m consuming bits of soy (especially since I found out I have some thyroid issues, which is affected by soy), not to mention a plethora of other unhealthy ingredients.
Don’t get me wrong: I think it’s FINE to occasionally indulge on a treat that’s not the healthiest (My hubby…ahem…brought me home a bad, bad, bad peanut butter shake last night! Haha!), BUT, while we’re at home, I much prefer to make our treats with wholesome and nutritious ingredients.
Chock full of chocolate, with just a hint of peanut butter, these healthy truffles are sure to please both chocolate and peanut butter lovers alike!
Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
- 1/2 cup natural (or homemade) peanut butter
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/4 cup coconut
- 2 TBSP cocoa powder, divided
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Combine peanut butter, honey, coconut, 1 TBSP cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Place in fridge to harden for 1 hour.
- Once hardened, scoop out teaspoon-sized portions and roll into balls.
- Roll balls in remaining 1 TBSP cocoa powder.
- Let balls harden in fridge for another hour—if you can wait that long!
These truffles are super chocolaty. If you want more peanut butter taste, either leave out the cocoa powder or chocolate chips. You will still want to roll the truffles in the cocoa.
These are chunky truffles. For a smoother texture, use mini chocolate chips—or leave the chocolate chips out altogether.
