Method

  1. Put the peanut butter, butter and sugar in a food processor. Pulse until it comes together. Add the toffee and pulse again. Remove and, using the palms of your hands, roll mixture into small balls. Place on a tray. Chill for 30 mins.

  2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave on High for 1 min or set over a pan of boiling water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water). Using a fork, dip the balls, one at a time, until half covered in chocolate. Roll in the peanuts. Put on a tray lined with baking parchment and leave to harden (about 2 hrs).

  3. Store between layers of baking parchment in a covered container and keep chilled. Will keep for 1 week in an airtight container.

Just made two batches and, without trying to sound smug (!) had no problems. I kneaded the mix together before shaping the balls and gave them a good hour in the fridge to harden. Then I just dunked them in the chocolate and then the peanuts. Just licked the chocolate bowl, feeling a bit queasy now! Bonbons lovely.

These are totally delicious and I have had requests/orders from friends and family asking that I make them again for Christmas 2015 as they went down a storm in 2014! The only thing I would say is that I never managed to successfully spear a bonbon to dip in choc and nuts without it falling apart and ended up having to (very messily) do it by hand. Fortunately I didn't mind eating the 'failed' ones!!

They taste amazing and are relatively easy to make but when you blend the ingredients, it is advisable to add some hot water before blending as it may not blend and get stuck. When I blended it, the ingredients stopped the blades from turning and made it smoke. I solved this by adding hot water and also gave it a mix once out of the blender. I'm hoping my blender still works but haven't tested it as yet...
