These were great little treats I would make not only for x-mas! The only problem was they got a bit too hard and I could not form balls out of them. Maybe I should have used more cool whip since I did not have a full container and was not sure exactly how much I had so I had to scale it down a bit. So I just made "bark" out of that batch. But I tried it again with the correct amount and it came out great. I rolled them in green colored sugar and some peanuts.
A magazine recipe book...don't remember the name, had a similar recipe that eliminated melting the chocolate by using 'ready made fudge frosting'. I also don't remember peanut butter in the recipe. It makes a great inside for a quick truffle. Then you would need to melt chips.
