For the Peanut Butter Truffles

To Make the Peanut Butter Truffles
- Whisk together all ingredients until smooth.
- Pipe into the cavities of the mould you’re using to fill 50%, insert a roasted peanut and top up with more ganache.
- This is the mould I used, but you can use any silicone mould.
- Gently tap the mould to remove air bubbles and then put in the fridge to set until firm, about 30 mins.
- Grind the peanuts in a food processor until you have small pieces about 2mm-3mm in diameter.
- Run the peanuts through a sieve to remove the flour. This will give a much cleaner finish to the truffles.
- Dip a truffle into the chocolate and remove using a small fork or dipping fork.
- Allow the excess chocolate to drip off before transferring the truffle to the bowl of chopped peanuts to coat.
- Repeat with the remaining truffles until coated.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the fridge for up to 1 month. At room temperature, they will be soft and from the fridge, they will be firm.
