This is my mom's recipe and I have so many fond memories of it. She would only make it for Christmas. I would beg her all year long to make them but nope, only Christmas. As an adult, it is not Christmas without my mom's Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles. I have had other variations but never like this. My mom always added raisins and coconut to them. My husband isn't a fan of coconut but there isn't a lot, just enough. He actually LOVES them!
2 cups peanut butter (creamy or crunchy) *I always use crunchy
2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick of melted butter
2 tbsp vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 cup raisins
NOTE: It makes a lot!!! I made these for just my family so I halved the ingredients (1 cup pb, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 stick butter, etc). If you half the recipe, you'll end up with approx 28 truffles. I used a teaspoon size scoop to make shape them. I always want to feel like I'm getting more than I am. :)
Mix all ingredients (except the chocolate bark) and form into balls. I find it easier to work with if I put them in the freezer or fridge for 30 minutes or so.
