During the holidays, I make a lot of candy for friends, and this simple recipe seems to be a favorite. The white chocolate and chunky peanut butter make a perfect blend. —Deloris Morrow, Lake City, Iowa

"I make this a lot. It is easy and good. My kids like it with smooth peanut butter. I wish people would not rate a recipe on how many calories it has in it. We are rating on taste and how good the recipe is. Yes it has a lot of calories in it. It is a dessert. This is definitely worthy of 5 stars on taste and how easy it is. :)"

"This candy tastes great and is so easy! I did use shortening in place of butter and to make it look a bit fancier, I drizzled melted semi sweet chocolate chips on top and sprinkled with additional chopped peanuts."
