🥘Ingredients

You can sub in peanut flour if you don’t like coconut. This is the perfect place to use up the Sugar Free PB Fit that you have hanging around.

This is even better if your significant other said you would never use it. Seeee Thom? It wasn’t a waste…😎

Nope, it doesn’t have to be powdered. It will melt and meld into your candy.

Lily’s is my absolute favorite sugar free chocolate. And, you know who has a better deal on all of their chocolate than Amazon? Thrive Market.

This small amount of coconut oil won’t overpower the chocolate. But, if you are adverse to coconut oil, I think you can swap in butter without an issue.

I haven’t tried it but I don’t know why it wouldn’t work.

👩‍🍳How to make the Peanut butter truffles:

  • In a medium bowl, combine warm peanut butter, coconut flour, allulose, vanilla, and salt. Stir until it forms a dough. It will look dry at first but keep mixing.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, form mixture into rounds and place on sheet. Chill for 15 minutes so they can firm up.
  • In a small saucepan heat the sugar free chocolate chips and the coconut oil over low heat while stirring to melt. Be patient. If you burn the chocolate it will seize and never be smooth again. Don’t turn the heat up no matter how tempting it is.

Keep stirring and don’t stop. It only takes a few minutes. This is by far the best way to melt the chips.

  • One at a time, drop the peanut butter balls into the melted chocolate and roll around with a skewer until coated. Stab the ball with the skewer to retrieve it and place back on the parchment paper. Chill until chocolate sets, about 10 -15 minutes.
  • Serve cold. Store any leftovers in the fridge for 10 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

 📋Tips & FAQ’s

Can I make this Peanut Butter Ball Recipe with Almond Flour?

My guess is no. Almond flour is just ground almonds and almonds dont have the ability so soak up other ingredients nor bind.

If you don’t like coconut flour, swap it out for peanut flour instead. It’ll intensify the peanut flavor as well.

Can I make this Peanut Butter Cup Truffles ahead of time?

Yes! And, they are even better the next day once the flavors have time to meld.

I love the Chocolate and Peanut Butter combination! What else have you got?

I love it too and the recipe’s for this classic flavor pairing is extensive on this site:

That’s all for the Peanut Butter Cup Truffles!

This is where I usually say ” I hope you love this recipe”. But today I’ll just say that if you don’t love this recipe, you don’t love chocolate and peanut butter. No humble bragging on this one.

It’s good. And, even my Reese’s loving teen agrees that they’re “freaking delicious”. That’s nothing to sneeze at friend.

Cheers for now and see ya next time….
