Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

I got a new camera for Christmas and needed to break it in...but I didn't know what I wanted to make. After a LOT of time on pinterest the past week, I was finally inspired to make up something new.

I love a good eggless chocolate chip cookie dough recipe for snacking purposes, but you never see any for peanut butter cookie dough. Since I have a very passionate love affair with peanut butter (especially when covered with chocolate), I decided to whip something up and see how it turned out. Aaaaaaand it was lovely. I totally dig the whole, I'm going to walk by the fridge and snag a truffle without needing a spoon thing.
