Peanut Butter Truffles

Ingredients:
2 cups sugar
1 5 ounce can evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
2 cups tiny marshmallows
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
12 ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 teaspoons butter

Directions:

1. In the saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture is boiling. Reduce heat to medium; continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in marshmallows, peanut butter, and vanilla. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Chill for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until mixture is thick and can be molded.

3. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; place on the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes.

4. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Dip balls, one at a time, into melted chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off balls. Place on waxed paper. Let stand until chocolate is set.
