Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

While I've been "home" for vacation, I helped host a bridal shower for my sister-in-law.  It gave me the chance to make some yummy new treats which I will be posting over the next couple weeks.

These truffles are super simple, yet impressive!  I love a good chocolate-peanut butter combo.  The truffle is super creamy and delicious.  Enjoy :)

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
From:  Favorite Family Recipes

1 package semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8 oz.) container of cool whip (left out to room temp.)

Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl, then fill a mug half full of water and place both the bowl and mug in opposite ends of the microwave. Stop and stir the chocolate chips every 30 seconds until completely melted. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Then thoroughly mix in the cool whip. Refrigerate for at least two hours until your chocolate mixture becomes firm enough to handle. Roll the mixture into balls (about the size of a rounded tablespoon), then roll the balls into powdered sugar, coconut, or nuts, or dip in chocolate. Return the balls to the fridge. They taste the best if they stay refrigerated.
