Ta Da! Back Again……
OK everyone. We’re all fixed up computer-wise so ready to share a really TASTY Halloween treat as promised! AND know what? It’s pretty easy to do and contains as much or as little bacon as you want (we wanted a LOT).
Bacon Peanut Butter Truffles…….
- 1 package bacon (you actually can have as much or as little bacon as you want in this one!)
- 1 16 ounce jar peanut butter
- ½ cup butter room temperature
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 12 ounce bag dark or milk chocolate chips for melting
Preheat oven to 400℉.
Place bacon on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Flip bacon strips and cook for another 5 minutes or until crispy. Let cool before finely chopping. Set aside.
Combine together peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar.
Add finely chopped crispy bacon except for ¼ cup.
Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon scoop peanut butter mixture and roll into balls. Place balls on parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler. (you can actually do this in the microwave – – CAREFULLY!)
Set chilled peanut butter ball on a fork and fully dip in melted chocolate. Carefully place back on baking sheet and sprinkle a little bit of reserved bacon on top. Once all balls have been dipped and garnished place back in refrigerator to set, approximately 1 hour.
Store in refrigerator in an air tight container, up to 2 weeks.
Oh yeah………now this is the way to scare up some fun on Halloween – eat them all yourself or share – up to you!
This recipe is DEFINITELY a treat!
