MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

"Wanted to something new in the candy department this year and this fits the bill. It really is easy to make and very tasty. For the granola, taste of home has recipe for that too, the one I used has honey in it, very good. Now for part of the truffle, gave a 5 star because the ease to make not a lot of ingredients, most I had on hand. As for the taste, I never have any left over when taken to work. I have made this PB truffles twice and truffles vanishes."
