Peanut Butter Truffles and a Tea Party

I was fortunate enough to get to attend a lovely Mother-Daughter tea party over Mothers Day weekend.  It was an event for the Little Flowers group that we belong to and it was perfect!  We had nice dresses, hats, gloves and our very best manners on display.  It was so much fun to see all the little girls behaving like young ladies.

We each brought a dish to share for the party.  I choose this recipe because it's easy, simple ingredients, and who doesn't love peanut butter/chocolate?


12oz bag of semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup whipping cream
4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
finely chopped nuts for coating (optional)


Microwave chocolate, cream, and peanut butter for 1 1/2- 2 minutes until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Let cool slightly.  Mix with hand mixer or stand mixer for about 2 minutes.  Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours (can be longer if that works better for you schedule). Roll mixture into 1 inch balls.  Roll in nuts if you want like.  I rolled about half in nuts and left the other half plain because my daughter didn't want nuts on hers.  I also topped a few with a sprinkle of himalayan sea salt (but ate those myself since I wasn't sure if the girls would like it).

Place the truffles on a foiled lined baking dish  for an hour.  That's it - easy, delicious, and a big hit with the girls!
