Peanut Truffles

These tiny truffles are delicious, I made them accidentally but with the response I got from my top tasters these are definitely a blog must! I got raw peanuts, a 2kg bag from the asian market at about 6.50e, if you can’t find skinless peanuts, you can skin them yourself after toasting, as the skin will have lifted. Enjoy these little balls of peanut bliss …
