Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles

This guest article is written by Kris Britton.

There is something about Peanut Butter that brings me back 20 years to my childhood Halloweens.

When I bite into salty peanut butter it reminds me of running home with sticky sparkles on my nose, hands and in hair.  The sparkles were at one time around my eyes, but had been transferred all over the place due to wiping my hand across my face to either stop my running nose, or itch the makeup off my eyes.  Either way, I needed to get home pronto so mom could inspect my orange plastic pumpkin and make sure the peanut butter cups were sealed and good to devour.

Come 9pm on Halloween night, I would pour all the candy on our kitchen floor and I would count how many peanut butter cups I had.  If I got a full sized bar, I scored BIG!  I was in heaven and could kiss the gods that gifted that bar to me in my little pumpkin.

Once the leaves turn orange and red here in Vancouver, I start seeing mini chocolate bars popping up at more stores and my heart starts fluttering.  I resist from putting the boxes into my buggy and I walk calmly by with the idea of making a healthier option when I get home.

Last week I was craving peanut butter badly.  I had a few tablespoons left in the jar in the fridge and I decided to get creative!  This is how the Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffle was born.  These treats are super easy and fun for the whole family!

They would be amazing to wrap up individually and tied with a bow to give to people as a treat at your upcoming Halloween Party!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles:


1/2 Peanut Butter Larabar {optional – you can use 1 tbsp more peanut butter}

1/4 cup Shredded Coconut {unsweetened}

2 tbsp Peanut Butter

1/2 tsp Honey

1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chunks {melted}

To Make Peanut Butter Coconut Bliss Bites: Break up the larabar into fine pieces.  In a mixing bowl mix together the larabar, coconut, peanut butter and honey.

Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or over a double broiler.

Roll the mixture into 1″ thick balls and drizzle with the melted chocolate.  If the mixture is not thick or sticky enough, add a bit more peanut butter.

Place the treats in the fridge until solid.  About 30 minutes.

I understand a lot of people are allergic to peanuts, so I would suggest trying to use roasted Almond Butter in place of the peanut butter :)

These lasted about 1 day in our fridge……

I would wake up dreaming of these truffles and couldn’t wait for dinner to be done so I could curl up, nibble some of these tasty treats, and sip on some tea.

Welcome back faux peanut butter cups, I missed you!

What is your Favorite Halloween Treat?

To Your Glam Life,
