**The Giveaway has officially ended and the winner has been notified. Thank you to all who entered!**
If you have been reading Sweet Potato Bites for a while now, you know that I love peanut butter, especially the Dark Chocolate Dreams flavor from Peanut Butter and Co. So when I received the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook along with a 28oz jar from the Peanut Butter and Co. team, to say I was excited is an understatement. I immediately opened the book and decided to make some Dark Chocolate Dreams Truffles.

I’ve been meaning to make chocolate truffles for some time now, and what better way than with some delicious dark chocolate peanut butter? The recipe in the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams cookbook is ridiculously easy, and this is the perfect treat to make for a crowd. I made these for Super Bowl Sunday, and they were gobbled up in minutes.
The only modification I did to the recipe is swap the butter for coconut oil, and they still came out delicious! The best part about making truffles is that you can coat them however you want: sprinkles, cocoa powder, coconut, etc. The possibilities are endless!
Dark Chocolate Dreams Truffles (from the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams cookbook)
1 1/2 cups Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
Toppings of your choice: crushed peanuts, semi-sweet chocolate, coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl combine all your ingredients and mix until you create a peanut butter dough.
Roll your dough into small balls and place on the parchment paper. Place your baking tray in the fridge and let the balls firm up for an hour.
To create a chocolate coating, melt your semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Roll your chilled truffles in the chocolate and add your chopped nuts or coconut. If you don’t want to do a chocolate shell you can just roll your truffles in some cocoa powder. I personally chose to do cocoa truffles and coconut truffles.
