Makes 10 tasty truffles


Energy-saving top tip: Use the microwave to melt the chocolate, rather than a saucepan on the hob – it’s quicker and uses less energy.



· 1 tbsp (15g) butter

· 50g smooth peanut butter

· 1 tbsp soft light brown sugar

· 50g icing sugar

· 75g chocolate



1. Pulse together the butter and peanut butter in a food processor until they are well combined.

2. Add in both sugars and pulse again until the mix starts to clump together – it will be quite crumbly.

3. Roll the mixture between your hands into small evenly shaped balls and place onto a baking tray. You can shape all the mixture now, or make a few truffles and save the rest to shape later.

4. Put the chocolate in a heatproof piping bag and melt in the microwave, then drizzle the truffles with the melted chocolate.

5. Eat immediately or chill and enjoy later.
