Reviews for Crunchy Peanut Butter Drops
"These are extra peanut buttery! These rich treats can be made quickly. Recipe can easy be adapted- by simply stiring in a cup of peanuts, it gives the drops and extra crunch! As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home magazine, I enjoy classic recipes that can be easily tailored to my family's tastes."
"When I was a little girl we had these sometimes as a snack at school. I LOVED them. I've tried for years to find a recipe for them but couldn't until now. I've made them for my family and they love them also. Thank you so much. Donna Lefurgey, Chino Valley, Arizona"
