Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Macadamia Truffles

Today for #SweetEatsHolidayTreats I am bringing Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Macadamia Truffles. These sweet treats were inspired by a post I saw earlier this year on one of my favorite blogs, The Cooking Actress. Kayle is awesome!

She’s funny, she’s witty and she makes a great actress that is fun to watch and if you have never watched her, you are really missing out. No joke. You can see even more about her here.

At any rate, she had these awesome Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pecan Truffles on her blog and I knew I wanted to try them.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Macadamia Truffles

When I was looking for something to make for our 12 Days of Sweet Eats and Holiday Treats I knew they were the perfect item. Of course the day I decided to make them, I didn’t want to go to the store so I decided to try them with a  little twist.

I had a big can of huge macadamia nuts I had been saving for something. I don’t know what, but this seemed like the perfect recipe.

And so, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Macadamia Truffles were born.  In my kitchen. And omg they were good.

The only thing I changed besides the nuts, is that I rolled them a second time with powdered sugar to make a different kind of coating and … it was worth it, though I am certain with just the cocoa powder they would have been just as good.

Thanks Kayle for a great recipe and a great way for me to use up all these macadamia nuts I had. We will definitely be doing these again.

There is a printable recipe card below for these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Macadamia Truffles.
