Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Truffles Recipe

I enjoy entertaining – I know to some people that makes me weird.  But I love getting together with friends and family, and have an amazing Hubby to help he tidy up afterwards.  Growing up I watched my Grandma host large dinners all the time for our family, and friends from her choir and church.  She made it look so easy, and her house was filled with laughter.  Now my dinners may not be as fancy as hers were, however they are still lots of laughs.  One of my “secrets” to hosting a great dinner is finding easy recipes that I can make ahead, but taste amazing.  This Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Truffle Recipe fits the bill perfectly.  My love for cheesecake is no secret, just take a look at these cheesecake brownies, Reese Peanut Butter Cup No-Bake Cheesecake or Oreo Cookie Cheesecake.

When I was planning our menu for our recent dinner party I let Hubs take the lead on the main, while I planned dessert.  As soon as I saw this Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cheesecake Truffles on the Kraft Canada website I knew they would be perfect.

If you like your truffles sweet, use 1/2 cup of icing sugar.  If you prefer to have the taste of the peanut butter and cream cheese shine then go with 1/4 cup of icing sugar.  Either way, there is no “wrong” way to make these Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Truffles.

I used crunchy peanut butter, but you could use smooth if that is what you have on hand, and then chop up and mix in some peanuts for a little crunch.  These bite sized delights keep well in the fridge, just take out what you need for serving and save the rest for a treat later on.  Or refill the plate as they disappear.
