Halloween Brain Chocolate Truffles With Peanut Butter and Cranberry

Halloween Food Party Ideas

These Halloween chocolate truffles are one of my favourite Halloween treats! With a thin chocolate shell and filled with peanut butter and cranberry they're so deliciously moreish. These Halloween treats are easy enough to make but can also sit shelf stable so they don't need to be refrigerated. I used cranberries as the sweetener instead of jam to make them shelf stable but also because the white chocolate was sweet enough as it was.

Step 2 - Spoon in peanut butter and cranberries. Spread some chocolate on top and smooth over the top, making sure to remove any chocolate around the outer edge that may prevent them from coming out of the mold cleanly. If it is very hot where you are, you can always put it in the freezer between each step.
