To enjoy all the flavor of truffle it is always better to consume it fresh, but if this is not possible, I will now illustrate some of my simple tips to consume it at its best. Storage in the refrigerator or freezer is the most used to keep the qualities and characteristics of the truffle unaltered before adding it to a recipe.
■ Keep the truffle in the refrigerator
It is possible to keep the truffle in the fridge for several days and use it to create your recipes without losing its precious taste.
1. Remove dirt residues with a small brush.
2. Wrap it in a sheet of absorbent paper or a cotton cloth.
3. Close it in an airtight container.
4. Change the absorbent paper (or cotton cloth) every day.
Using this method, the white truffle can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. The black truffle can last up to 8 days.
■ Storing the Truffle in the Freezer
If you want to keep the truffle for a longer period of time, I recommend that you freeze it.
1. Remove dirt residues with a small brush.
2. Wash the truffle under running water at room temperature, with the help of a soft bristle brush.
3. Dry the truffle very well with absorbent paper or cotton cloth.
4. Place it in the freezer in a freeze bag for food (better if vacuum-packed) or whole, ground or sliced.
5. Once taken out of the freezer (for use in your recipes), it is important to use it immediately.
Using this method, the truffle keeps pretty well for about 12 months. Of course I recommend that you always check it out.

What are nutter butter truffles?
Nutter Butters are delicious peanut butter cream filled cookies. Pairing them with this peanut butter ball recipe allows more flavor and creamy goodness in every bite.
Nutter Butter truffle ingredients
-Nutter Butter cookies: We need a 16 ounce package of Nutter Butter Cookies to have enough for this recipe.
-Cream cheese: We need 8 ounces (one brick) of softened cream cheese. For best results, use whole fat cream cheese.
-Powdered sugar: We need 1/4 cup of powdered sugar to add in a smooth sweetness.
-Creamy peanut butter: 1/4 cup of your favorite creamy peanut butter will help to bring that peanut butter flavor home while adding a creamy goodness in every bite.
-Salt: I enjoy adding 1/4 teaspoon of salt into the recipe as I think it adds to the overall flavor, but it can be left out if desired.
-Chocolate: You need 10 ounces of chocolate melting wafers, or 10 ounces of chocolate chips to make the coating for these truffles. Note if you use chocolate chips you’ll need to add in 1/2 teaspoon of coconut or vegetable oil. See note on recipe card for more info.
-Optional Toppings: You can add a nice sprinkle of holiday or themed sprinkles on top or even add a pinch of sea salt to the top of these truffles for added flavor and appearance.
How to make Nutter Butter truffles
Add your nutter butter cookies to a food processor and then process until they are the size of fine crumbs. Reserve 1 tablespoons worth for the topping, if desired.
Add your cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter to the food processor. Process until combined.
Use a medium sized cookie scoop to portion out the mixture and then roll the dough into balls.
Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and continue until all of the mixture has been rolled into small balls.
In a small bowl, melt your chocolate in 30 second intervals in the microwave until smooth, stirring well after each addition.
Use a spoon and a fork to help you dip each ball into the chocolate and gently slide it off of the fork and onto the parchment paper.
Sprinkle the reserved crumbs, salt, or sprinkles over the top of the truffles after you’ve dipped about 4 or so to help get them on before the chocolate sets.
Allow the balls to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes until hardened. Alternatively, you can place them in the fridge for about 10 minutes to speed up the process.
Store the balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 20minutes
16ozpackage Nutter Butter cookies
8ozcream cheese, softened
1/4cupcreamy peanut butter
10ozchocolate melting wafers
Sprinkles, for topping
Sea salt, for topping
Add the Nutter Butters to a food processor and process until a fine crumbs forms. Reserve 1 tablespoon of crumbs for topping, if desired.
Add in the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter and process until combined. Add salt, if desired.
Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the mixture and roll into balls. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and continue until all of the mixture is in ball form.
Add the melting wafers to a bowl and melt on 30-second intervals stirring between each addition until smooth.
Use a spoon and fork to dip each of the balls in the chocolate and gently slide off the fork onto the parchment paper to set.After every 4th ball, top the balls with Nutter Butter crumbs, sprinkles or sea salt before the chocolate sets.
Allow the balls to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes until hardened or place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to speed up the process.
Store balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Make sure to use whole fat cream cheese for best flavor and results.10 ounces of chocolate chips may be used instead of melting wafers but you will need to add ½ teaspoon of coconut or vegetable oil to the mixture so it doesn’t get too hard to bite through. These balls are pretty firm right after mixing and there is no need for them to chill before being dipped unlike other similar recipes. I like adding salt to these balls, because I think it adds to the overall flavor, but it can be left out.
Yes these balls could be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Keep in mind that once the balls begin to thaw the chocolate may sweat. This is a normal reaction but may make eating a little messier.
Can I use crunchy peanut butter?
You could, but the texture would be different. Truffles are known for their irresistibly creamy texture. Using chunky peanut butter would give you a little grainy thing going on in every bite, but if you’re fine with that then go for it!
Do we have to chill truffle dough before rolling into balls?
Nope! This “dough” is so thick that it’s easy to roll and scoop without any chilling necessary! That means less time waiting and prepping and more time eating and smiling.
