Wicked Truffles Caliente

These truffles are wonderful and super easy to make! They will remind you a little of peanut butter cups...then comes the heat and subtle smoky spice of the cayenne and cumin. Your sweety as well as family and friends would love to receive these homemade truffles - Enjoy (:
