More About This Recipe
  • Google the word “truffle,” and you may be a little surprised by what you find—these rich and indulgent treats originally got their name because their shape is similar to the edible part of a tuber fungus (yep, you read that right). True truffles are considered a gourmet food in many food cultures, especially by the French, who have held this circular fungus in high regard since the late 1700s, when it was enjoyed by nobles and royalty. The French also had a hand in inventing actual chocolate truffles as we know them today. They were first developed in France in the early 1900s, named after the fungus purely because of its resemblance in shape. The ingredients, of course, are entirely different, and include a homemade ganache filling and coating like cocoa powder, nuts and/or chocolate. Nowadays, truffles are a treasured chocolate confectionary in both Europe and America, taking on many different variations like our Peanut Butter Cookie Truffles recipe.
