Serious Eats

Ready in: 120 minutes
Servings: 30

Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
    Baking
  • Edible ink markers, or writing icing
    Baking
  • 2 cups peanut butter
    Nut butters, Jams, and Honey
  • 3 cups puffed rice cereal
    Cereal
  • 8 to 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    Sweet Snacks
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
    Baking

Steps

  • Melt peanut butter and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally with wooden spoon until mixture is fully combined, smooth, and warm.
  • In large separate bowl, stir together the confectioners' sugar and cereal.
  • Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture. Using hands, blend well, until it is easy to clump together and form balls. Form into roughly 30 balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and place on parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Chill in freezer for at least one hour.
  • Melt chocolate in bowl set over simmering water, stirring occasionally with rubber spatula until melted and smooth (alternatively, heat in microwave-safe bowl at 15 second intervals, stirring with rubber spatula, until melted and smooth)
  • Remove chilled bonbon centers from the freezer, and using a toothpick, dip each one in chocolate mixture, turning until coated.
  • Remove toothpicks and place on waxed paper to set. Repeat with the remaining bonbons.
  • Meanwhile, prepare Jovi toppers. Using a double boiler or microwave, melt white chocolate chips (see directions in step 3).
  • Cut 12-inch by 20-inch piece of wax paper. Fold in half crosswise to crease, then open again.
  • Pour melted mixture onto half of prepared wax paper. Fold other half on top and use hands or a rolling pin to gently flatten chocolate.
  • Let set until you can easily lift waxed paper up, about 5 minutes. Using small heart cookie cutter, press fully into white chocolate to form imprints but do not attempt to remove cutouts.
  • Let set until white chocolate is fully cooled before removing, using small, sharp knife to assist (see note).
  • Top truffles with white chocolate hearts and serve.
