Muddy Buddy Peanut Butter Truffles

Last week, I made some No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars using Ritz Crackers. And, they were very good.
But, let's say you wanted to share this yumminess with someone else. And, let's say that you wanted to present them in a way that would really impress. What do you do? You turn them into truffles. But, not just any truffles. If you've seen my Muddy Buddy Madness before, then you know what I had to do - Muddy Budd-ify them!
That's right. I formed that peanut buttery layer into little balls, dipped them in a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter, and dusted them with some powdered sugar. Great!
