Quick and easy to make. They were a big hit at an office potluck.
Peanut butter candy cheaters
I loved this and my son who is 18 and has hated peanut butter all of his life loves this recipe so you know what that means even if a grown child hates peanut butter doesn't mean that a wonderful recipe can't convert his way of thinking about peanut butter.
