I originally got this recipe from my aunt who got it from my "cousin" whose wife makes them for him.... mostly because they taste like candy and are a delicious snack. I was a little hesitant to try them.
But holy moley.... these things are DELICIOUS. If you're like me and have the world's biggest sweet tooth and an unnatural obsession with peanut butter... well these are the snack for you!
They are super easy to make. I take some to work with me and store them in the fridge there and eat a couple on my way out the door so I have energy for the gym.
