Buckeye Truffles Recipe
Does the sound of "homemade truffles" frighten you? Not for long!
- ¾ cup (1½ sticks) melted butter
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup (2 sticks) melted margarine
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 3½ cups powdered sugar
- 12 oz. chocolate chips, melted
- No bake/cook
Prepare and bake Classy Chocolate Pound Cake Mix as directed on package; cool completely. While cake is cooling, combine margarine, peanut butter and powdered sugar; stir until smooth. Cut cake in half. Crumble half into bowl.(Reserve the other half for another use.) Reserve ½ cup of the peanut butter mixture; combine the rest with the crumbled cake. Roll mixture into 1-inch balls; place balls on a waxed paper-lined or lightly greased baking pan. Place pan in the freezer for about ½ hour or until the balls are firm. Using a toothpick or small skewer, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. (If the chocolate is too thick, thin with a teaspoon or two of solid shortening such as Crisco.) Place balls on waxed paper. Place reserved peanut butter mixture in small plastic baggie and clip 1/8-inch corner, then squeeze 1/4 teaspoon of the mixture on top of each cake ball. Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Makes 40-48 cake balls.
