Peanut Butter Truffles, Gee Whiz!

I'm afraid I'm going to have to keep this brief.  Yesterday was the 27th anniversary of my birth, yep, I'm getting on in years!  Anyway, as I'm sure most of you can understand, I'm feeling a little fuzzy in the headular area.  The only thing to fix the fuzzy is for me to be taken for lunch by my lovely mother and spend the rest of the day being pandered to by my little brothers.  Bliss.


Right, on to the truffles.  This weeks pick was the choice of Mara from the lovely blog Love Your Mother Earth.  Well, I love peanut butter and I love making truffles so for me,  this week was a massive bag of win.  The only problem I had with the recipe was the quantity of peanut butter.  I decided to make half of the truffles in honor of my attempt to drop a stone before my holiday, but left the amount of peanut butter the same.  Still, the flavour wasn't half as strong as I would have hoped. So if you're thinking of making these, and you love peanut butter as much as I do, up the quantity to around 1/2 a cup.

As usual don't forget to check the other ladies for their opinions.

They look so great in that little dish! I guess everyonefeels the same about the level of peanut butteriness. Mine are currently in their 2 hour chill stage - can't wait to try them!

Belated birthday wishes! These sound YUM

Happy birthday! Be sure to eat quite a few of these because from what I can tell, calories don't count on your birthday. It's been scientifically proven :P

They look delicious. I agree - more PB!

Happy Birthday Katie. I think we all agree that the peanut butter does not make a difference and needs to be upped, a lot. I would like to try it.

Happy Birthday! Beautiful photo. I agree about the peanut butter flavor - definitely could have been amped up a bit.

Happy birthday, I hope you had a great time with your family today! The truffles look so pretty, but I agree that they need much more peanut butter.

Happy Birthday!

I quartered the recipe and left the PB the same -- still not enough... PB! I think maybe next time -- semi-sweet chocolate instead of bittersweet.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear!

It's SO wonderful to hear from you, Katie- thanks for stopping by and saying hello... it really means a lot! I've missed you over the last few months. How are you? I hope you're having LOTS of fun celebrating your special day. May your 27th year be your very best yet, filled with plenty of love, happiness, and baked deliciousness :) You deserve it!

Your truffles look simply lovely in that pretty glass bowl tied with a gingham ribbon... your presentation always has that extra special touch! I'm sorry they weren't peanut-buttery enough for you though... that seems to be a common theme this week.

Hope you're having a wonderful start to your week, and I can't wait to talk to you again soon!

<3,
Joy

Tessa said...

Upping the peanut butter seems to be a consensus. Happy belated birthday!

Tracey said...

Happy birthday Katie! Hope it was absolutely fantastic :)

Your truffles look perfect! I was disappointed by the lack of peanut butter flavor in these too, seemed to be a common complaint this week.
