Celebrating 1 year of blogging with Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

It has been a year since I started blogging and this is my 50th post. I was fascinated seeing my long lost friend's blog with the beautiful write ups and pictures and with help and directions from her I also started blogging for fun….and at that point I never thought I would come so far and that my new found hobby would replace my all time favorite hobby of embroidery….now I am proud to be a part of this community and it has been a great year learning about various cuisines, making some good friends and also adding to the variety of food on my dinner table.….

Let me Thank each and every visitor who visited my humble blog and also to all of you who encouraged me by dropping a line in my comment box….your comments make my day…and also a big thank you to my dear hubby for supporting me and also waiting patiently with our 4year old son while I finished the photo shoot of my latest experiment :)..I must say there were times when they dug in while I was searching for my camera :( but it was fun….

These truffles I tried from Kraft Foods and you can see the original recipe here.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles


1 pkg. (8 squares) / 224gms Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP or COOL WHIP Extra Creamy Whipped Topping, thawed
1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • Microwave chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Stir in peanut butter until well blended. Cool to room temperature. Gently stir in whipped topping. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Scoop peanut butter mixture with melon baller or teaspoon, then shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Also let me take this opportunity to wish my dear friend on her birthday who inspired me to blog….....
Happy Birthday Bharathy!!!
