Truffles are special chocolate candy that is traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center and then chocolate outside. In this, the center is made from a peanut butter filling and the outsides of the brownies, the brownie bottom and ganache top, is the outside chocolate coating. While this is not a traditional truffle, it is delicious enough to be called a truffle brownie.

If you want to freeze these brownies you can. You will want to make sure to separate the layers of brownies by wax paper or parchment paper.
