  • About

Like their cousin, the Chocolate Mocha Truffle, these are quite sinful tasting, but the coffee is exchanged for peanut butter flavor.


  • ½ cup heavy (whipping) cream
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • ¼


Warm the cream in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until hot and bubbling around the edges, about 3 minutes. Put the chocolate in a medium bowl and pour the cream over it. Let sit for 30 seconds, then whisk until smooth. Whisk in the peanut butter. Spread the chocolate cream in a 9-inch pan or pie plate. Refrigerate until hard, at least 1 hour to overnight.
