Tips on how to make the best Mexican Chocolate Peanut Truffles.

  • Measuring the ingredients is very important. Adding more of any of the components on the recipe card will alter the result.
  • Use no sugar added chocolate and coconut flakes. The sweetness will be coming from the condensed milk and the chocolate morsels.
  • When mixing, start with the dry ingredients first and then incorporate the peanut butter and, finally, the condensed milk.
  • If you cannot find crunchy peanut butter, chop a quarter cup of peanuts finely and add it to the mix. Using crunchy peanut butter adds texture and flavor.
  • Make sure to form the little balls immediately after the mix is ready to avoid hardening.
  • The kids can help to make the chocolate truffles and to dust them in the coconut. Make sure they wash their hands thoroughly before starting.
  • Use paper liners for serving.
  • This recipe is also great for party favors and gifting gourmet artisanal treats.
  • Pack the truffles inside small bags, mason jars or tins, and decorate with a bow.

These truffles are the perfect balance of what I like in a treat; coconut and chocolate.

Michele

These sound absolutely delicious–the kind of treat that I might end up eating all that I made before the guests arrive. They would also be great to give as a hostess gift.

These look amazing! Too bad that I can’t have peanut butter, but I could sure use these at my upcoming holiday parties. I could live vicariously through others. The pictures look awesome as well! Thanks for sharing.

These look so delicious and super easy! I’m definitely going to try these soon! I have everything but the La Lechera! I’ve seen it in the stores but have never used it!

Ave

These Mexican Chocolate Peanut Truffles look really mouthwatering. I’m a huge fan of Nestlé La Lechera sweetened condensed milk. I sometimes eat it by spoonfuls.
