Here's an alternative to candy on Valentine's day or anytime you want something sweet... but healthy! I placed my healthy peanut butter truffles in the refrigerator to help them retain their shape. Choose your favorite garnishes- cocoa, crushed nuts, etc. These are packed with nutrients and healthy ingredients -kids will love one of these as an after-school snack!
