White Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

People regularly request the recipe once they try my peanut butter fudge dipped in melted white chocolate. It's a nice contrast to typical chocolates on a candy platter. —Tall Pines Farm, Gloria Jarrett, Loveland, Ohio

    Dipping the fudge in white almond bark is a pain. Next time I will just drizzle with almond bark and add more chopped nuts. Very Delicious Fudge!
