White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Bars #SundaySupper

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Bars

So I spent a year on match.com. It was interesting to say the least. And at the end of that year I am certain I am no closer to finding love than I was before I joined.

There are a lot of guys who seem great on match … unfortunately none of them responded to my emails or winks. Maybe it was because I don’t want children or because they didn’t see a connection forming with me, although I really don’t think a couple hundred guys could think that. Mom thinks a lot of them probably aren’t that in to it.

I tend to agree with her. Even when I started emailing and then texting with a guy, most stopped after a few days with no explanation. It’s frustrating to be in that situation.

I went on five dates with five different guys. Two dates were terrible, one was bad, and two were pretty good. Unfortunately even the two good dates didn’t result in second dates. There was no spark with one and the other guy found someone better.

Most of the guys who approached me on match were not guys I’d ever consider dating. EVER! They were creepy, ugly, too old, and more. I had to block a few guys and ignored a few hundred … hoping they’d go away.

Sometimes I get down about my experience, hoping that something more would have come of it. It’s hard to think it’s all them and not me. However, I don’t think I’d ever find my soulmate on match. I may try Ok Cupid on Joanne’s recommendation (plus it’s free), but really I’m focused on my career and trying to believe that there’s some kind of plan out there for me.

When I’m down about being ditched an hour before a date, I need a treat and these White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Bars definitely fit the bill. They are easy to make and don’t require any baking. Plus, they’re an easy grab and go snack or treat and last in the refrigerator for awhile. Because some weeks have more than one crappy guy. Oh, plus these are gluten free.

You have to be a serious peanut butter lover to like these, but I know there are plenty of us peanut butter obsessed people out there. So whether you’re single or married, dumped or in a relationship, make these bars.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Bars #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 32 bars

Ingredients

2 12 ounce bags white chocolate chips

2 tablespoons vegetable oil or shortening

1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2-3 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 cup Mini Reese’s Pieces

Instructions

Line a 9 by 13 inch pan with parchment, leaving overhang for easy removal.

In a microwave safe bowl, place 1 and ¼ bags of the white chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between until fully melted. Pour into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator.

In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter, vanilla, and sugar until a thick, non-greasy mixture forms. It should not be crumbly. Add more sugar if it needs to be thicker and a little more peanut butter if it needs to be smoother.

Remove the pan from the refrigerator once the chocolate is set, about 10 minutes, and top with the peanut butter mixture, spreading it into an even layer.

Microwave the remaining chocolate with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted. Pour over the peanut butter mixture and smooth to cover it all. Top with Reese’s Pieces, pressing them into the chocolate.

Refrigerate until firm before cutting into bars. Bars may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freeze, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature about an hour.

Notes

Additional chilling time is necessary

    Fingers crossed that you find that special someone when you least expect it. Till then, I’ll join you in munching down these delicious peanut butter bars! xo

  2. Joanne says:

    Online dating can definitely be SO frustrating. Try not to let it get you down! You are definitely a catch and any guy would be stupid not to see that!

  3. Oh my goodness, these are so cute and yummy looking!

  4. Renee says:

    I hope you do find a good match one day. It will come, just be patient and it will probably happen at the most unexpected time and place. Meanwhile, those bars sure are a decadent and wonderful treat.

  5. Beth says:

    Your bars sound wonderful. And I’m sure there’s someone amazing out there who will be just right for you. Sometimes it seems like a long time coming, but don’t give up! You’re doing what you should be doing – trying to meet people – and you’re so lovely that I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until you find The One.

  6. First, I just want to say….he didn’t find someone better….he found someone else. Second….when the time is right you will meet the person meant for you. Just be patient and be open to it. You might bump into him on the street, you might meet him through a friend, you might both join the same group or enjoy the same hobby. And when you do meet him, give him one of these bars to “set the hook” LOL>

      I’ve learned to save baked goods for the second date. No need to waste good cookies on a crappy date 🙂 I do hope I meet a guy randomly like that … I feel like then it wouldn’t be so forced. Thanks, Wendy!

  7. Online dating can be the pits. I have several friends doing Match and OKCupid (or OKStupid, as one of them calls it) and I hear regular horror stories. Just be patient and hang in there! These bars look wonderful.

  8. MealDiva says:

    Wish I had a big piece RIGHT NOW!

  9. This is so decadent looking you can’t help but love it! I’ve got this saved for the holidays and definitely want to try it with dark chocolate too

  10. Sue Lau says:

    This looks like the perfect treat for teenagers to make as they expand their cooking repertoires. Very autumn!

  11. These look absolutely delicious — white chocolate and PB — there isn’t much more I need in life!

    You’re a beautiful, talented, accomplished young woman. Continue enjoying life!

  12. If I make these, it must be for a crowd! I would eat the whole plate! Oh my goodness do these look yummy!

  13. I’d love these at Halloween too!

  14. Debbie Eccard says:

    Same comment as one of your other replies: Not better just better for him! Also, you are trying and that is half the battle but you just have to take most of it with a grain of salt…..who knows who is behind the keyboard. I know one thing, these are fantastic looking bars and I am a peanut butter lover so love these I would….

    Hugs!

  15. Awww don’t get too discouraged (I know..easier said than done). I have so many friends and family who met on match.com….my brother and sister-in-law met on Eharmony and got married 3 years ago! Just be patient – something will work out. But i know the dating process can be gruesome. Love these truffle bars. Anything with Reese’s is my kinda dessert!

  16. Soni says:

    Fingers crossed you will find your soulmate since I believe life is full of surprises!So just be patient and you’ll find somebody when you least expect.Your bars look and sound absolutely delicious!

  17. Yep, these definitely qualify as a perfect pick-me-up!

  18. Awww hang in there! There’s a great guy out there just for you, and sometimes you meet “the one” in the most unlikely places (my hubby of 10 years I met at Walmart in the checkout line of all places, hahaha!) In the meantime these bars do look like the perfect pick me up! 😉

    • Laura says:

      Thanks, Nicole! That is such a great story about meeting your husband. Just the kind of thing I always hope will happen.
