If you love the Butterfingers candy bar, then these truffles are the perfect way to showcase your favourite tasty treat. These truffles are easy to make, making them a family friendly recipe. Unlike many other truffles, they contain no alcohol, so the kids can enjoy making them and eating them.
You will need a biscuit base for your truffles. While you can buy in many types of biscuits, homemade biscuits make this recipe extra special. You can prepare the biscuits in advance, and they taste delicious on their own. You will need 400 grams of crushed biscuits, so there will be plenty left in this batch.
You will need;
- 200 grams of flour
- One teaspoon of baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 110 grams of unsalted softened butter
- 175 grams of soft brown sugar
- One egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 300 grams of chunky peanut butter
You should preheat your oven to 180ºc. Mix the salt, baking soda and flour together. In a separate bowl, cream the brown sugar and softened butter. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg, before adding in the peanut butter. Mix well before you fold in the dry ingredients.
Form the dough into two centimetre balls and press them onto a cookie sheet, using a fork to create lines. Leave a few centimetres of space between each cookie.
Bake for approximately ten minutes until the cookies are light brown. Allow your cookies to cool completely on a wire rack; they will need to be cold to form crumbs for the truffles.
Ingredients for the Truffles:
- 400 grams of crushed biscuits
- 200 grams of softened cream cheese
- 210 grams of Butterfinger chocolate bar pieces
- 400 grams of chocolate
Beat the biscuits with the cream cheese with a hand mixer. Add in three quarters of the Butterfinger Candy bars pieces. Beat the mixture until it is smooth. If your mixture is too sticky to form a ball, refrigerate for an hour to firm it up.
Roll the mixture into two centimetre balls. Place each of the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow the balls to sit in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes to harden up. This will make the truffles easier to cover in chocolate.
Finely chop the remaining Butterfinger bars and set aside. Melt your chocolate in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over hot water. Use a toothpick or fork to dip the frozen truffles into the chocolate to cover them completely. Garnish the truffles with chopped Butterfingers, while the chocolate is wet.
The truffles will need to harden completely in the fridge. They can then be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
