This recipe for Peanut Butter Pinwheels has been handed down in my circle of relatives for generations! Don’t allow the secret ingredient idiot you, those are a conventional preferred sweet that I’m certain you’re going to like!

I really like that this is an no-bake recipe, and that’s part of what makes them a holiday favored that I grew up making. while my mother would be the usage of the oven to prep vacation dinner essentials, i'd stay out of her manner making classic no-bake treats like my preferred no-bake cookies and those peanut butter pinwheels.
