Yay, it’s finally Friday! Who’s up for another Fun Foodie recipe? No bake truffles are so popular right now and they’re perfect for summer! No heating up the oven or any intense step by step instructions. They’re so easy! This week I used my FAVORITE candy in the world, Reese’s Cups! I even bought the minis so I wouldn’t have to waste time unwrapping them before whipping up these beauties.
No Bake Reese’s Truffles
8 ounces of softened Philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 package of Reese’s mini peanut butter cups, roughly chopped
2 cups chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon of shortening
Stir together all four ingredients until smooth. This recipe doesn’t get any easier, folks! The batter will be soft, so you need to freeze it for at least 15 minutes. Or stick it in the fridge until you’re ready to make truffles. Using a cookie scoop or table spoon (or your hands!) roll out your truffles. I got 16 with my scoop. You can make them as small or as large as you’d like. Stick them back in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
Melt your chocolate chips & shortening in the microwave, stirring after every 30 seconds. I used dark chocolate chips, but you can use milk chocolate or even white chocolate.
Dunk your frozen truffles in the chocolate and set them down to harden. I used two forks and had a pretty good dunk and scoop assembly line going. The chocolate will be soft so once you’re done, go ahead and stick them back in the fridge to harden completely.
Good gosh, I could barely wait to sink my teeth into these bad boys! Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty much my favorite combination EVER!
These would be great with m&ms or any chocolate caramel candy. If peanut butter isn’t your thing, you can use almond butter. If nuts aren’t your thing, you can replace the peanut butter with 1 cup of marshmallow fluff OR 3/4 cup of powdered sugar. Add your favorite candies and top with chocolate.
SO EASY Y’ALL! I hope you try them, customize them with your favorite candy, and let me know how it goes in the comments below!
