~ Chocolate Caramel Peanut Truffles ~

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup heavy cream
9 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 T creamy peanut butter
1/4 t table salt
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts, for coating

Place the sugar in a heavy saucepan. Cook over
medium-high heat, stirring just until the sugar
has melted. Continue cooking, swirling the pan
often, until the sugar is dark golden caramel.
Remove the pan from the heat and carefully pour
in the cream. Return the pan to the heat and
simmer, stirring, until the caramel has dissolved.
Remove the pan from the heat and, while hot, stir
in the chocolate, peanut butter, salt, and vanilla.
Let stand for about 5 minutes or until the chocolate
and peanut butter have dissolved. Transfer to a
bowl and cool to room temperature. Cover the bowl
with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 2
hours. Use a small spoon to scoop out the truffles
and form into 1 inch balls. Roll the truffles in
the peanuts and transfer to a tray covered with waxed
paper. Chill until firm, about 1 hour. Store in an
airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Makes 40 truffles
