We launched our Peanut Butter Luxury Brownies back in 2010 so we know just how tempting peanut butter and chocolate are for many of us. Given the huge popularity of Peanut butter so we thought we’d build on the Peanut Butter heaven concept by making this  delicious and really simple recipe Peanut Butter Truffles we found scouring the internet.
