Ingredients
  

Butterfinger Truffles:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt or two
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Butterfinger bars chopped

Chocolate Coating for Truffles:

  • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • optional: 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil for thinning chocolate

Instructions
 

  • Using a mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Add the peanut butter and salt, and beat until smooth and combined. Add the powdered sugar, and beat on low until combined. Add 3/4 of the chopped Butterfinger into the mixture. The mixture will be a little crumbly, which is what you want.
  • Roll the dough mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. You should have about 20 - 25 balls. refrigerate for 40-50 minutes or more.
  • Take your peanut butter balls out of the fridge and get ready to coat them.
  • Add the chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth. Leave to cool for a few minutes.
  • Dip each peanut butter ball into the melted chocolate, and place each one onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add some Butterfinger crumbles on top.
  • Let truffles set. You can quick-set them to get the chocolate to harden by placing them in the fridge for a 5-10 minutes.
