Peanut Butter Truffes

Elaine Sinclair


Peanut butter fudge gone wrong. Used 1 cup of sugar instead of 3. Fudge was gooey but tasty. I brain stormed with how I could make this into something I could serve and add to my holiday treats. The results are a delicious truffle that has gotten rave reviews from all who have tasted.
