Easy Peanut Butter Truffles Recipe

During the Christmas season, I decided to make a peanut butter honey fudge. My husband is a huge peanut butter fan and grew up where honey was a household staple. This pairing goes so well together. —Tami Kuehl, Loup City, Nebraska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

I made this recipe "again" for my hubby's birthday/Valentines Day and shared them between his office and mine. A huge hit and no leftovers. An hour seems to be sufficient for cooling and setup time. The next time I make these, I will try rolling them in toasted coconut.

I made these for a youth group meeting, and they were a hit! They were all gone, to the disappointment of those waiting at home for some . ;) I didn't change a thing, except I didn't leave the balls in for two hours- I didn't have that much time, but they were fine even after just an hour and a half in the fridge!
