I'm not done mak

I'm not done making mine yet and I'm already giving this five stars based on the little sample I took. I've got the peanut butter mixture cooling in the fridge and soon I'll be melting the chocolate.

Paula, you're a gem! Be sure to tell your crew I love them too. Yes, I rhymed that on purpose. :p

My husband loves

My husband loves these peanut butter candies. They are so easy to make. Thanks for the recipe and video. I love to watch you do it before I try doing it myself. It makes the process more successful for me as I am a visual learner.

My mom and I hav

My mom and I have made these for many years for our gift baskets and they r wonderful. I continued the tradition w my daughter after mom died many years ago; now that tradition is being passed down to sister in law and niece and now I have a granddaughter. Thank You Paula for passing this recipe along so hopeful many more traditions can begin.
