Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Truffles

A favorite childhood flavor combination, elevated for the adult palette.

Directions:

  1. Let vanilla ice cream sit at room temperature about 10 minutes or until softened slightly. Working quickly, spoon into a large bowl and dollop the preserves and peanut butter around the bowl. Mix gently with a spatula just to evenly distribute, do not over-mix. Freeze mixture until set, at least 1 hour.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate chips, butter cubes and corn syrup. Cook over medium-low heat just to melt all ingredients together, stirring constantly. Mixture should be very smooth. Let cool 5 minutes.
  3. To assemble: Line several small cookie sheets with plastic wrap or parchment paper. Use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop balls of the ice cream mixture. Use hands to smooth into a clean shape.
  4. Dip immediately into chocolate mixture, using two forks to cover the ball quickly and evenly. Use forks to lift the truffles onto the parchment paper. Before chocolate has had a chance to set, top each truffle with a fresh raspberry and freeze immediately. Freeze for 30 minutes before serving.
