Trufflenutters1I had a jar of cashew nut butter in my cupboard for ages, none of us are very keen on peanut butter and I kept meaning to use it for something and at last got round to making these little delights as I experimented with it.

I threw in some Nutella, something I usually have in the cupboard to add to cookie recipes and things but not something any of us eats on toast.

I decided not to tell Frey or Gav what was in them and let them decide without being biased whether they liked them or not. Well they both adored them, so did I by the way! They are sweet and tasty and they stick all round your mouth, fabulous!

TrufflenuttersCashew nut butter is a fairly stiff paste so if using a runnier consistancy of peanut butter you may need to add a little more icing sugar to gain a stiff truffle mix.

The taste is really similar to a praline. These would make a lovely gift for someone. Just use some cute petit four cases & then gift wrap them real nice. You can use different things to roll them in, coconut, cocoa, sprinkes, icing sugar whatever works for you.


85g cashew nut butter (or similar like peanut butter)

85g chocolate spread (I used Nutella)

1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract

50g sieved icing sugar

20-30g finely grated white chocolate to decorate

Makes 16

In a bowl mix the peanut butter, chocolate spread & vanilla until well mixed. Add the icing sugar and mix to a stiff paste.

Place the grated chocolate in to a small bowl. Take teaspoons of the mix and roll into a ball ensuring the heat from your hands makes the outer surface sticky then drop into the grated chocolate and move around to coat.

Place in the fridge. They will keep for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy ♥
