So truffles are like really easy. And as it turns out completely beautiful without even one single colorful confetti sprinkle or jumbo red candy heart attached. I had to resist the urge you know.
Last week when I made some ganache for those yummy butterscotch brownies, I realized it has been forever since I made chocolate truffles. Like since I was in college forever. And the best I can remember it was only that one time. So I wanted to make some more ganache and truffle it all up. But … ugh … I had no heavy whipping cream on hand and no desire to drive to the store.
So I made these with cream cheese instead.
Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Melt. Mix with Cream cheese, Chill. Scoop and roll.
And then the fun part. You can coat the balls with good stuff…
… Like cocoa.
… like chopped peanuts.
…like powdered sugar.
…like chocolate sprinkles.
And …… why hello …… cutest little chocolate sprinkles ever. So delicate and delish. I love you.
These are made by India Tree since I know you’ll want to know.
By the way, I had to resist dipping these in candy coating too. You know I’m kind of dipping addicted. But I refrained. : )
When they’re covered, you can do a couple of things with them.
Place them in cute little candy cups like these in pink foil. Love!
Then, you can package them in small candy boxes, too.
The candy cups will keep them clean and cozy. And easy to move without getting cocoa on your fingertips.
You can also wrap them in 4-inch foil candy wrappers like these.
Or be ballsy and leave them on display and uncovered at your party. Just chill again if they get to room temp. But I bet they won’t last long enough for that.
Feel free to omit the peanut butter if you would like them straight up chocolate.

Is the cocoa they are rolled in something like Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa or is it similar to a hot chocolate cocoa mix? I was thinking the Hershey’s would be way to bitter, but it does look like Hershey’s. I want to make these to take to a Christmas party. Thanks for letting me know.
Love the idea of rolling them in different things for a variety box!
Can’t wait to try them although a little skeptical of the cream cheese. Can I use milk chocolate?
Cupcakes are the best.
These truffles were so tasty!! I made them as gifts and they worked out so well. I even linked your recipe and reviewed it on my blog: http://tstidbits.blogspot.ca/
I made these, and as promised they were delicious! I’m kind of curious as to what I can add to them so they don’t melt so fast. Some of my other candy recipes call for wax, would that work? Any other suggestions? Thanks :)
I tried these last night. Super easy to make and they taste great BUT they go so soft as soon as I took them out of the fridge. Is there a trick to keeping the truffle nice and firm? I even popped them into the freezer for a bit because I was bringing them to a work party.
These were amazing, and so easy too! Totally a winner.
These look absolutely delish! Can they be frozen? I am making a few desserts ahead of time for Thanksgiving. Thanks!
These look absolutely scrumious ! Definietly making these for Xmas. Yum yum ! !:)
WHEN YOU ROLL THE TRUFFLES INTO THE SPRINKLES HOW DO THEY ATTACH?
they look so yummy, but how do u get them in this perfect round shape ? is there a special truffle shape-er if there is do u have any idea where can i find it or just tell me what it is called
Thank you for this recipe! How far in advance can these be made? Can they be frozen once they are coated with toppings?
I made these for Valentine’s Day and they were a hit! I used Velata chocolate rather than chocolate chips and chunky peanut butter rather than creamy and they turned out great. Thank you so much for sharing!
Those chocolate sprinkles are so fun-looking! I recently made a non-dairy version of these using coconut oil. If you are curious to check them out, here is the link: http://www.creativesimplelife.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-truffles/
Thanks for this great-looking recipe!
BEST POST EVER!!!!
My boyfriend loves chocolate and peanuts so this will be the perfect gift for valentines day :)
Omg. These look so yummy and delicious. I want me some. I have been looking all over for a truffle recipe, and this is perfect like a Reese peanut butter cup but only better. Been a follower for quite some time, but this is the first I have commented.
Great… Now I have drool all over my keyboard :p
I’ve been looking for a truffle recipe to make for my husband! I need to look no further!! My readers would also love this recipe, I would love for you to link it up to my linky party –
These look delicious!
Congrats on the feature!
And all the best for the new year.
obsessed with truffles.
these look amazing! love all the different kinds!
You never disappoint! They look great. For anyone that has a T J Maxx around, I have seen India tree products there before so try looking there for the sprinkles. I can’t remember all they had but it’s worth checking it out.
Oh, gosh, these look fantastic. I cannot wait to impress my friends with these at our next get together.
Cream cheese. Genius.
Love these! So beautiful, especially the ones with the chocolate sprinkles. So pretty!
Looks good! If I want to omit the peanut butter, do I just substitute an equal amount of cream?
What a Delicious food blog! I am feeling quite hungry now, can’t wait to eat those yummy food :)
Wow! these look amazing! i wish i lived in your house! I love the chocolate sprinkles, they look like little mosaics! LOVE it will be trying it in the very near future!!!! Thanks Bakerella!!!!! (EVERYONE at my house Loves you and they dont even know it!)
These are so pretty! I love truffles but never had the guts to make them as I have been afraid of all the complicated steps in handling chocolate but this seems easy enough! Thank you Bakerella! :)
I went to the India Tree site and it look like they only sell to “tradesmen”. Is there any where else that these totally “gotta have” sprinkles can be found.
These look soo cute and delicious! The little square chocolate sprinkles are adorable
how many hours did you wait until rolling the balls?
yummy … I like it… cool.. delicious! :-))…
Is there anything you make that doesn’t look delicious?? You are an inspiration!
Well, it sure can’t get any easier than this! These look so delicious, I will be making them soon. :D
I’m so trying these out! But I couldn’t find Peanut Butter here in my city. Small town. :/ Anyway, I recently gave a try on Cake Pops, but they didn’t turn out pretty like yours. Soo, I went to a bookstore here in Brazil to buy your book. And guess how much it costs here! R$60,00!
It’s super expensive! :/ I couldn’t afford it, so now I’m trying to get it on Amazon or something, but it’s super complicated to get it shipped here. But I will do ANYHTING cause I’m DYING to get my hands on your book! hahahaha
Ah, these are so cute! I’ve always wanted to make truffles but I never have. These are inspiring. :)
i have lately been obsessed with truffles and these have peanut butter (my favorite thing in the whole wide world!)… YUM!!!
YUM! They look soooo goood!!
Hey!! love those :)
just one thing, can i use butter or margarine instead of cream cheese?
Truffles never failed to amuse my taste buds. Love my newly discovered twist in here, cream cheese and peanut butter…why I haven’t thought of this. Glad to have prospect gifts for hearts day. :)
So very pretty! Thank you!
oh goood! they look so delicious! :)) I want some:D
I’m testing truffle recipes for Valentine’s Day and did something similar. I made Cointreau truffles and rather than enrobing them with tempered chocolate, I dusted half the batch in cocoa powder. A friend of mine grows macadamia nuts so she gave me a few pounds to experiment with. I roasted two cups of the nuts and ground them coarsely in my food processor and coated the remaining truffles. I don’t want to use powdered sugar because it’s too humid in Hawaii, but I will try some of the other coatings, especially the sprinkles. In Brazil, they make a truffle with condensed milk and roll it in sprinkles. The are called “Brigadeiros”‘ Check it out at:
These look amazing!
Wow, these look so good! Thanks for sharing this recipe…I will have to try and make some next time I have friends over or maybe for hubby for Valentine’s Day.
Im soooooo gonna make those for valentines day!
Wow!! These are the perfect things to send in care packages to our relatives!! Thanks for the awesome idea!
oh wow, I have to make these very very soon, they all look soo delicious!
I would be one very happy lady if I had a mountain of these in front of me right now. Or if I was trapped in room made out of these and the only way to escape was to eat my way out.
Look at you & Paula in the same magazine!!!
PS…I MUST get my hands on some of those India Tree sprinkles. Why do I always forget to order them?!?
Awesome! What’s your secret of making melted chocolate smooth. I made chocolate fudge last Christmas and they were gritty. Thanks.
Oh my goodness, 3 of my favorite treats all in one! And those flat, square chocolate sprinkles are so unique!
Those sprinkles are the coolest sprinkles I’ve ever seen!
Wow such a great idea and they look yummy. Different flavors is always good :) gotta try it. Thank you.
Holy moly. Those look amazing! I had no idea chocolate truffles were so easy to make! Definitely next on my list.
Your Valentine box should have been the cover of that magazine!
They look absolutely scrumpcious !
I have to make these ;-) they look so good
Thank you this looks amazing, I have always wanted to make these, now I see how easy it is.
So I was checking your blog, like I do twice a day, and started to shake a bit from the peanut butter withdrawal I am experiencing. Simply amazing.
Oooohhh… you are so evil, evil, evil for posting such amazing looking truffles …. that I had to look at while I was at work. ;)~ Definitely making these for the husband for Valentine’s Day.
those square chocolate sprinkles are the cutest! and chocolate and peanut butter? you can’t go wrong with this irresistible combo!
Do you use natural PB or more like Skippy?
Those are really interesting chocolate sprinkles. They really make the truffle look extra classy! Mmm, few things in this world more deliciously indulgent than a rich chocolate truffle.
So smart to use cream cheese in your truffles. They look devine, I could gobble those up in about a day!
I saw that cover at the store and though… “They had BETTER have given credit to Bakerella for that!” Of course they did! Everything looks amazing… great job as usual~!
oh, Bakerella, you’ve done it again! Just when I need inspiration for my daughter’s wedding in October! Thanks!
OMG those look great I love truffles-anything chocolateto me is HEAVEN :D
I love all the different things you rolled these in
Hi! It’s Zoey, I’m 10 years old, and I love your blog! My blog is called Twin Bakers, and I love baking!!!!!! I absolutly love that post! It’s one of my favorite ones you made!
How cute! These look amazing
I have been making waaaay too many things with peanut butter lately.
But hey – what’s one more? ;-)
the chocolate sprinkle ones look awesome! and so does your cake in Good Housekeeping!! (:
Beautiful! :) They look soooooo yummy!!
The chocolate sprinkles are the cutest- they look like they were made for truffles!
Where did you buy those foil wrappers? I love the color on the outside.
Oh yummy!! I love to make truffles but never thought of using cream cheese. I’ve got to make these ASAP!!
Cream cheese + peanut butter + chocolate… seriously, this is the dessert food of my dreams!!
These look nice and easy. I have to make some of these after I’ve gotten off my butt and made cookies. I have ideas!
Love the truffles and congrats on another fabulous post in Women’s Day. When are you going to grace the cover???
These looks so delicious…I’m not a sprinkle fan but the chocolate sprinkle ones were my favorite!
Your pics make me want to jump through the screen! Beautiful photography and the truffles are not so bad either. ;)
Oh, these look simply ah-ma-zing.
Oh my! I could down a few for breakfast right now.
Liking those chocolate sprinkles bunches!
Mercy, Angie! You make truffles look better than anyone possibly can! xoxo
These look truly heavenly.
These truffles look yummy. I will have to give them a try. I usually make truffles using the very easy sweetened condensed milk and melted chip recipe…usually used for fudge…that can be found all over the internet. The truffles can be customized using different flavor chips and/or a peanut butter or Nutella add in. And the best thing…they don’t have to be refrigerated like the ones made with heavy cream or cream cheese.
You forgot to take a bite. ;-)
Oh boy – these look so delicious! My 3 favorite things – cream cheese, chocolate and peanut butter! Can’t wait to try them.
What a great idea!! I can’t wait to make these for Valentine’s Day! Anyone know where I can get the pink foil wrappers???
What beautiful photos! These would definitely make the perfect gift. Congrats on the Woman’s Day feature! :)
Looks very good! Jummy
Oh my! I can’t wait to try these! Sound and look delish!
Your Valentine’s Cake Box is the reason why I started making cake balls. I still make them that way; covered in chocolate with some sort of topping, no stick. These truffles look like another edible ball I need to make!
These look so tasty. And I’m a sucker for anything with cream cheese!! Yum!!
No dipping this week? Whhaaatt!?! O_o
Now, aren’t you one clever lady! I think cream cheese keeps them together better than whipping cream. I’ve made truffles and they just got so incredibly messy in warm tropical weather. I almost pulled out all my ganache covered hair! have to try this.
Love! These are so cool! And i am surprise that you held back on the dipping ;) I cant wait to make these. They will be the perfect Valentines surprise for my hubby. :) Thanks for sharing!
Cream cheese is genius – ever so slightly less rich & heavy tasting, I imagine it means I can eat even more before I feel sick?
Oh my mouth is watering!! It has been awhile since I made truffles. Must try these for Valentines Day! Thank you for sharing! Those are the cutest chocolate sprinkles ever!!
I say : dip away!
My parents used to make truffles every winters to offer them around and we always coated them in melted chocolate. To bite in the hardshell then the creamy center was just a prefect combination of textures.
Ohhhh, they look so cute and so easy to make! <3 Must try!
I just wanted to say Bakerella you are simply the best I love all your books and have two and your blog with the truffles Thank You Thank You! I wished you can tour Canada. Would love to me you and you’re my inspiration to create cake pops.
Laura from Toronto, CANADA
Looks so yum! The chocolate sprinkled ones kinda look like mini chocolate disco balls haha :D
Those chocolate sprinkles are to die for!
Super beautiful and I’m sure delicioius too! Gorgeous photos (as always!) Hmm, now it’s late at night and I’m craving chocolate and peanut butter…
These sound and look delicious, definitely going to have a go!
Yummy! Looks delish! I’m going to try these tomorrow:-)
These are adorable Angie! :) You had me at chocolate and peanut butter :)
