I love Lindt chocolates, dark chocolate, white chocolate, any flavor really, I’m not fussy!

This year my partner and I were doing some shopping in Coles and at the end of a particular aisle – conveniently located, I spotted Lindt Balls but not the normal ones, Peanut Butter Lindt Balls!! I was so excited. They also had coconut flavored ones, which were okay but I much preferred the chocolaty, creamy with a hint of salt Peanut Butter flavored Lindt Balls.

Peanut Butter Lindt Balls

Whilst looking for some Christmas recipes, I came across this recipe on one of my favorite sites for Peanut Butter Truffles.

They may not be Lindt Peanut Butter Balls but this recipe came pretty close and was easy enough to make.

They were a big hit, even for a fussy family member who ended up consuming at least 3!
