These truffles are an updated version of a vintage peanut butter candy recipe.
Filled with crunchy peanut butter, this candy also has pecans and coconut. And if you don’t like all the crunch, use smooth peanut butter and leave out the pecans and coconut. I have made these both ways and they turned out great each time.
These truffles also have powdered sugar (a.k.a. icing sugar) and vanilla wafer crumbs. You combine all the ingredients and then roll the mixture into balls.
Dip them in orange-tinted white chocolate and place a candy carrot on top. My chocolate hardened before I could get the carrots stuck to them, so I put a little melted chocolate on the back of the candy carrots and stuck them that way.
You can change the shape and color of these balls. For example, try making them into egg shapes. Dip them into different colors of white chocolate for Easter eggs.
