So as the year has slowly come around to my personal favourite time ever, I couldn't just sit at home during my summer holidays and not do any kind of delicious baking. I decided to make some Crispy Peanut Butter & Butterscotch Truffles which in my opinion are so so delicious.

As you can probably guess, I had my Christmas music and baking supplies at the ready and had to much fun just messing about in the kitchen. I also made some peanut brittle (I was in a very peanut buttery mood) however that did not turn out cause it was kind of burnt in the end haha. Which is such a shame cause it was going so well and looked so delicious until the very last step when I wasn't quick enough getting it out of the pot and onto the tray so it burnt :( but oh well aha I still had one amazing treat to save my night.

Ingredients you will need...

  • 1 cup of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, your choice. I used smooth because it balls already are quite crunchy on their own)
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter
  • 1 cup of icing sugar / powdered sugar
  • 1 packet of butterscotch sweets (hard boiled, you could use Werther's if you like)
  • 1 cup of rice bubbles
  • 300g of milk chocolate


1. Place your butterscotch sweets into a plastic zip lock back and basically bash them until they are a relatively small or to your desired size and place aside for later on.

2. Cream your peanut butter and butter in a large bowl.

3. Add in icing sugar and mix until combined well.

4. Gently stir in the rice bubbles and crushed butterscotch pieces remembering to leave approximately 1/3 aside to sprinkle over the top at the end.

5. Place mixture in freezer for 20 minutes or until you feel it is hard enough to be able to roll into balls.

6. Place some baking paper onto a tray.

7. Remove mixture from the freezer and roll into 1 inch size balls. If the mixture has become to soft or sticky, place back in the freezer to be able to harden again.

8. Return balls back to the freezer to set.

9. Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl over the stove or in the microwave.

10. For this step if you choose you can completely cover the balls in chocolate by sticking a skewer in to through the bottom of the ball and rolling in the chocolate bowl, or you may drizzle a tablespoon full of melted chocolate over each ball to create a dripping effect down the sides.

11. Sprinkle the 1/3 of crushed butterscotch sweets that you places aside over each truffle.

12. For decoration you are welcome to also sprinkle some icing sugar or the top of everything just to make it look really pretty haha.
