Dreamy Fudge Truffles

Fudge Truffles.... can it sound any better ?? Of course it can... Chocolate and peanut butter Fudge Truffles!

What are these?? An accident that's what they are. My fudge truffles came about when I was making fudge... got impatient and tried to cut into warm fudge ruining it. Then I thought to myself... how do I salvage this? Easy! Turn them into balls rolled in coconut and call them fudge truffles. 

This is a super easy and simple recipe, doesn't cost all that much taking in mind I took full advantage of the half price chocolate sales at the supermarkets. 

Here they are:

Bowls from Daiso $2.80 each. 

What You Need:
- 1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate 50-70% cocoa
- 1/3 cup of smooth peanut butter (although crunchy would be good too!)
- 1/2 can of condensed milk
- 30 grams of unsalted butter

What to do:
1. Combine all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl 
2. Microwave for 2 minutes (stirring it even 60 seconds)
3. Check to see there are no lumps, if there are microwave for a further 30 seconds
4. Pour into a dish , the larger the size the faster the mixture will cool for rolling
5. Place into the fridge for 1 hour or freezer for 20 minutes
6. Take the mixture out and start rolling them into balls (around the diameter of a 20 cent coin)
7. Roll the fudge truffles into desiccated coconut or chopped peanuts
8. You can eat them straight away or store in the fridge, but they won't last long!

Fudge mixture ready for cooling and rolling!

This recipe is also great as a gift  or scattered around the room in delicate bowls at a party. You can customise the flavour to suit what you like. For Christmas remove the peanut for more chocolate and add peppermint. Like Nutella? Add Nutella instead of peanut butter. Like a bit of naughty? Add some Baileys or Kahlua ... the options are endless!

Perfect pairing with a nice strong cup of espresso
