What are chocolate truffles?

Chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache centre coated in chocolate, cocoa powder, coconut, or chopped toasted nuts, usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape.

What ingredients do I need to make these Three Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles?

  • No sugar added chocolate chips– you can use Lily’s no sugar added semi sweetwhite chocolate, milk or dark chocolate chips. You can find Lily’s no sugar added chocolate chips at your local Walmart store of HERE on Amazon.
  • Low point peanut butter – I love using the Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter which is 3 smartpoints for 2 tablepsooons or American Dream Nut Butter- see point values below. 
  • Sugar free cool whip– thawed 

 

What low point peanut or nut butter do you recommend?

Well, my two favorite whipped peanut butters Jif Whips and Peter Pan 1/3 less fat whipped have both been discontinued-but I have since found a few other brands that I LOVE!

This Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter is only 100 calories, 3 smartpoints for 2 Tablespoons, 4 grams of protein, and is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Palm Oil Free, and Kosher.

You can buy a 3-pack online on Amazon HERE.

 

 

The other brand I LOVE and RECOMMEND is American Dream Nut Butters. These nut butters are low in points and are amazing!!  I have loved the every flavor!

How do I make these Three Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles?

Combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl.

Cover with foil and chill in the freezer for 45-60 minutes or until firm enough to form into balls.

Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon-shape truffle mixture into 1- inch balls.

Then roll the balls into powdered sugar, crushed peppermint, sprinkles, coconut, or chopped nuts, or dip in chocolate. 

Place balls on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.

Would you be able to make these with PB2? Thanks Mariann

Lindsay Kehl

Hi Mariann

I haven’t tried PB2 for these truffles. However, the low point peanut butter is used as the base of these truffles and gives them the creamy texture and is used as a binding agent with the melted chocolate chips. With that said, you can give it a try and see how they turn out.

Thanks so much,

Linds
