Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
24 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa
To prepare chocolate-peanut butter mixture and chill: Heat cream
with peanut butter in a 1quart heavy bottomed saucepan. Use a whisk
to break up peanut butter so it melts evenly. Meanwhile, melt
chocolate in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water.
When chocolate and peanut butter is smooth, combine with melted
chocolate, using a whisk. Force through a medium mesh sieve into
another bowl, using a rubber spatula. Stir in vanilla. Let cool,
then cover and chill 2 to 4 hours (or overnight).
To shape truffles: Whisk powdered sugar and cocoa together, then
sift into another bowl to combine thoroughly. Grind peanuts, if
using, in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade.
Line a large baking sheet or tray with waxed paper.
If very chilled, let mixture sit out at room
temperature for 20 minutes to soften slightly. Scoop out or spoon
small portions of chilled filling and roll into a ball. Roll truffle
in cocoa mixture or ground nuts and place in candy cups. Place in a
decorative tin or gift box, separated by sheets of waxed paper. Keep
Yield: 30 to 50
