Peanut Butter Bon-Bons
I have never made truffles before and when I came upon this recipe I decided that I would make them for Easter. if YOU LOVE reese's peanut butter cups, then this is the recipe for you.
This recipe was so easy and took almost no time to put together. I made so many that I have about 50 extra that I plan on taking into work.
This recipe yields about 100 truffles so it's perfect for a large gathering. I hope you all enjoy them.
