Payday Truffles

I bought 2 cans of dulce de leche and when I saw this recipe, I knew we would like it! They DO taste like Payday candy bars!

Payday Truffles

1 14 ounce can dulce de leche
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups miniature marshmallows
4 1/2 cups dry roasted salted peanuts
32 ounces vanilla candy coating, 2 16 ounce packages Beth used 24 oz

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until smooth. Add in peanut butter and dulce de leche. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat.

Fold in 4 cup peanuts.

Scoop by large tablespoon onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 2-4 hours.
 Melt vanilla Candiquik according to package directions. Pour melted candiquik into a large bowl.
Using a toothpick, dip each frozen truffle into the melted candiquik, tapping side of bowl to remove excess. Return to parchment paper lined baking sheet and immediately press on a peanut (or two).
Repeat until all truffles have been dipped.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks. ENJOY
