Easy Peanut Butter Truffles Recipe

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
