I gave these out in Christmas baskets.... all were returned, asking for a refill. (My husband demanded a basket of his own after being my taste tester)

These were easy to make and tasted great. I drizzled the tops with a litte milk chocolate and put them in truffle cups and they looked great.

What a hit!

I made these as a gift and my friend loved them. She thought I bought them! They are very good and the mix of chocolate and peanut is great! I will definitely make them again especially for the holidays coming up.
