Easter Egg Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles are something that creates a blast of taste in your mouth the moment you take its first bite. But even more, you do that, the bright and vibrant colors will make a stunning first impression on your guests.
Easter Egg Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles
Easter season is the most magical time of the year. There is happiness in the air. There is cheer in the weather. And, most importantly there is something colorful baking in the kitchen. If you are in my house, then you can see the colorful mess and cans full of Easter sugar cookies.
So, to make my Easter Egg Cookie dough truffles I have used Peanut Butter, white chocolate, some normal butter, sugar, and some colors.
What I loved most about my cookie dough truffles was how there was a beautiful balance of sweetness. If you want your truffles to have that crunchiness then you are free to include some chocolate chips in your cookie dough.
One thing to keep in mind is that you don't want to add too much fat while making your cookie dough. Too much oil or butter would make your cookie dough sticky and it would get really hard to make those perfect Easter Eggs.
How to Make sure that things don't get messy?
While you are making colorful Easter Egg truffles, you can't help but complain about the mess. While I was making this, especially while drizzling chocolate over the egg truffles, I had to use separate bowls for separate colors. The good thing about using separate utensils will make sure that your colors don't mix with each other.
Can there be a No-Bake Version?
To make a no-bake Easter Egg truffles you would have to skip all-purpose flour. I have used all-purpose flour hence I just had to bake it. Baking it was necessary or else my uncooked flour would make me sick. Therefore If you can make it without flour, then it won't need any baking like mine.
If you are making it without flour then you can use golden Oreos or graham crackers. Crush them real nice and mix them with condensed milk. Now add peanut butter and butter into it and make small egg truffles.
NOTE: Your truffle batter will be lumpy. It will stick to your hands. So make small balls and let it freeze in the fridge for 2-3 minutes. Once they are a little firm you can give it the shape of an Egg.
How did I get that beautiful Egg Shape?
It's actually pretty easy. I bought some plastic eggs from the craft store and use just one end of the egg to cut out small little Easter Eggs. If I did not have them then I would use my hands and my kitchen-knife to cut out cute Egg shapes.
How to make sure the White Chocolate coats well?
This is an important question that I wanted to highlight while writing this post. It is important to keep in mind, that you cannot coat with a warm or hot Easter Egg.
You would have to give your Easter eggs some amount of time to chill down at room temperature. Once they are firm, then start coating them with White chocolate.
If you find that your white chocolate isn't coating well, then add some oil and stir well. You can also add some butter. Once it gets a smooth consistency, you can coat your eggs in the white chocolate.
What colors should I use?
Since we are making Easter Eggs, I have inclined towards traditional Easter colors like Yellow, Pink and blue. You can also use purple or light blue just to make it look more Easter-y. You could also give your eggs a tasty look by drizzling some sprinklers over your Easter Eggs.
How to Make these Easter Egg Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles
To Make Easter Egg Peanut Butter Truffles you need to mix brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, butter, all-purpose flour, and peanut butter until it forms a crumbly mixture.
Next, you need to roll out this crumbly mixture. As you roll you will see it will release more oil and butter. You can use your palm to stick any cookie dough that stays out.
Now line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut out egg shapes. You can use your palm and a kitchen knife to make cute Easter eggs.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 5-7 minutes and let them chill at room temperature. Now coat it with white chocolate. Let it freeze for about 10 minutes and then drizzle colorful chocolate over your egg truffles.
