Mini coopers, miniature dogs, mini-snack-size candy bars, miniskirts… Mini, mini, mini.
It’s quite the fad.
I’m totally loving the mini fad. I think mini things are great for when you just can’t commit to the big size. It’s like your own personal, portioned, perfectly-sized treat just for you. And mini things are the perfect excuse not to share, which, everyone knows that I hate sharing. Really, I do. I know it sounds bad, but I don’t like sharing. I didn’t go to kindergarten, so I’m assuming I missed the lesson on “Sharing is Caring” and all that.
Especially when it comes to food, back your paws off. It’s mine.
Especially yummy food. Like these Nutter Butter truffles. They’re mini, perfectly petite and absolutely scrumptious — and shareable, if you’re feeling particularly generous for whatever reason. Best part is, it yields a decent-sized batch, so you can have a couple for yourself and spread the peanut buttery wealth when you’re done being a truffle hog. (Get it? Truffle hog? I laughed).
I cloooosely adapted this recipe from the geniuses over at Kraftfoods.com, except I omitted the mini Nutter Butter half on top of each truffle. I also found that if you microwave the peanut butter with the melted white chocolate for about 15 seconds, it helped the peanut butter break down and become smoother –just a tip.
For the complete recipe, look no further than here.
And if you’re wondering why I call them ‘truffles’ as opposed to ‘cookie balls’, it’s only because I’m a pretentious snob sometimes and thought truffles sounded ten times cooler. So there.
Pretentious snobbery or not, you must make these. Forrealz.
