Peanutty Chocolate Truffles

This is an easy truffle recipe that I found on the back of a package of hot chocolate mix. Super sweet and super easy!

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 t vanilla
1/3 cup hot cocoa mix
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped peanuts (or other nut)

Line baking sheets with wax paper. Beat peanut butter and vanilla in medium bowl until creamy. Combine cocoa mix and powdered sugar in another bowl. Stir into peanut butter mixture. Place peanuts in flat dish. Use cookie scoop to scoop peanut butter mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls; roll in peanuts to coat. Place on prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate till firm.
