Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups No Bake Truffles Balls are even than those infamous Buckeye’s! Try these for your next holiday gathering, but be sure to make double the batch!
Trust me, you won’t make “buckeyes” ever again. Or you’ll just call these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups No Bake Truffles “buckeyes” or “Reese’s Truffles,” because, well, those are kinda easier to say!
Whatever you call them, they are for sure DELICIOUS! Here’s how to make them:
No Bake Reese’s Truffles
- 8 ounces of softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 package of Reese’s mini peanut butter cups, roughly chopped (or you could use the store brand if you want to save money)
- 2 cups chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon of shortening
What You Need To Do:
Just add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir together until well mixed. The batter will be soft, so be sure to place the pan of truffles in the freezer for about 15 minutes (or you could put the bowl in the fridge until you’re ready to “make” the truffles – you know, before you roll them into balls and dip them into that ooey-gooey melty chocolatey goodness)!
Once you’re ready to make them, use a cookie scoop (like the smaller version of the ice cream scoopers, like this one) to roll your truffles into balls. You can use your hands too – that’s sometimes easier I’ve found. After you’ve placed your balls onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper (so they don’t stick when they’re ready to eat), put the pan into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Pretty much like making buckeyes – but trust me – these are so much better!
To make the chocolate dipping sauce, grab a microwave-safe bowl and add the chocolate chips and shortening to it. Pop it into the microwave for about 3 minutes – but stir it every 30 seconds.
Dunk your frozen chocolate peanut butter truffle balls in the melted chocolate concoction and set them down to harden on the pan (preferably on top of parchment paper). 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 for about 1-2 hours (or overnight if you can).
So there you have it – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups No Bake Truffles – that will be gone in a flash, so be sure to make extra (or double the recipe)! If you enjoy these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups No Bake Truffles Balls, be sure to leave a comment below!
