Ingredients

2 pounds white chocolate, chopped

2 cups peanut butter

2 cups whipping cream, scalded then chilled

1 pound dark bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Crushed peanuts, for decoration

Directions

  1. Combine white chocolate and peanut butter together in a mixing bowl and blend together. Then add chilled whipping cream and continue blending at high speed until smooth consistency is achieved. Pour mix into a suitable container and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours to allow mixture to set.
  2. Using a melon baler or #70 scoop, form the mixture into balls. Place balls in the refrigerator so they can firm up.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler and then gently dip each ball so that it's fully coated. Decorate with crushed peanuts. Keep truffles in the refrigerator until serving.
