Peanut Butter S’more Truffles

27 Nov

Hey Ya’ll! I hope you are all having a great week so far.

My week has been pretty good so far! I am looking forward to receiving my insanely impulsive order from Forever21! I got a couple awesome steals with their Thanksgiving sale and they are getting delivered tomorrow.

A couple of my favorite buys:

Micro Rib Blazer

Bronze Sequined Skirt, I think this will be perfect for holiday parties!

Double Strand Studded Waist Belt

Key Charm Necklace

And maybe a few other items as well…

Forever 21 doesn’t have the best quality stuff but I find if you’re looking for trendy items, they have a big selection and chances are if you’re following trends, the stuff will last longer than you will wear it anyways. I also like getting just plain tees and tanks from there because they are super inexpensive.

Anyways, on to day two of truffles!

These are a new creation for this year, when we were making those Coconut Snowballs, we also whipped up these peanut butter numbers!

They are super tasty, especially if you love the peanut butter + chocolate combination. I also think they are really cute and pretty, and just like the Snowballs, they are incredibly easy to make!

They look pretty on a plate with other Christmas cookies and treats too. Just make sure to keep them hidden in the freezer until you need them, or they will be gone before you know it!

Try putting them in a container labelled ‘Thanksgiving Leftovers 2005’, and they might stand a chance.

Peanut Butter S’more Truffles

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Makes 24 truffles

Peanut Butter S’more Truffles

Delicious and easy to make peanut butter truffles coated in chocolate.


  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups milk chocolate melting wafers
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts


In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined in wax paper. Once you have them all rolled, place the entire baking sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes, until hard.

Add your chocolate to the top of a double boiler, or bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth, turn the heat off and just leave the chocolate over the hot water to keep the chocolate warm.

Using a fork or I used a fondue fork again (which works awesome,) dip each peanut butter ball into the chocolate and turn to coat. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off and then place the coated ball back onto the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining peanut butter balls and once finished, return them back to the freezer to set completely, about 1-2 hours.

Store the truffles in an airtight container in the freezer until you want to serve them. To serve allow them to come to room temperature.


Make these ahead of time and freeze them in an airtight container, they will last for weeks! They thaw out in no time when you need them.

Coconut Snowball Truffles

26 Nov

Who’s started her Christmas baking? THIS girl.


I think this is the first time ever that I started before the beginning of December. My mom and I started last weekend and we already have four different things made.

One of those things was White and Milk Chocolate Swirled Bark with Cranberries and Pecans which is no longer with us….due to some family members, that I will not mention, eating it all before December even hits.

The remaining three of those recipes I will be sharing this week and this is one of them!

As evidenced here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here aannnnnnddd here, I kind of like coconut.

Which is why it was the obvious choice to make into a delicious truffle to enjoy over the holidays. This recipe uses my most favorite thing ever, coconut oil! Which means these are basically like a health food.

Okay, so maybe not.

Healthy or not, they are easy and delicious and you should make them.

Just try and make ’em last till Christmas. […]

Wonders of Coconut Oil

23 Nov

Hey Everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday so far!

I hope I’m not the only one that is sooo happy it is Friday. I almost didn’t make it, folks.

Okay, hot on the heels of my little post about sharing products I love, I decided today to post about one of my many loves, Coconut Oil!

This is a little different than a product pimp, because no one is giving me free coconut oil, I just buy this stuff all on my own. Like a lot of it.

I am not going to tell you all the proven scientific information about it, that is what wikipedia is for. I’m just going to tell you what I do with it and why I love it so much.

First of all, I buy my coconut oil from two different places and I will tell you why in a minute. I either buy it from Trader Joe’s or Voyageur Soap and Candle Company which JUST so happens to be like 2 mins away from my house! Luckily for you they ship within the US and Canada.

Okay, so one of the really cool things about coconut oil, is that it can be used in the kitchen as well as for health and beauty purposes! Which is why I buy it from two different places.

The Trader Joe’s stuff looks like this:

It’s really cute.

Now, let me tell you what I do with this stuff!


‘Sharing is Caring’…or is it?

22 Nov

Good afternoon everyone! I hope everyone is having a fabulous Thursday so far. For those of you living in the US, today is Thanksgiving! I cannot express how jealous I am that, at this very moment, you are probably enjoying a beautiful Thanksgiving meal!

I hope everyone has a lot to be thankful for, I know I do!

I have been kind of slacking when it comes to blog posts this week but I promise I am getting some good recipes put together to share next week! However, for this week I wanted to share something that I have recently run into and by talking about this, I hope to fill my readers in on a few of my “Blogging Morals” and maybe even help some other fellow bloggers out with some helpful tips!
