    My mother has used this recipe at Christmas since the mid 80's. You can substitute chocolate candy coating for the chocolate frosting. Cook time includes time for coating to set.

      I grew up on the same Christmas staple. They are soooo addictive. I like to use chunky peanut butter and after they are mostly dry I put them in the fridge and the frosting hardens up nicely.

      I asked myself as I was melting down the frosting, "when this dries, won't it still be the consistency of frosting?" And sure enough... it was. Maybe these would be fine to serve my family, but definitely not an addition to a Christmas platter. They were a sticky mess. If ever I attempted them again, I would use the candy coating. Edit: After sitting in the fridge for a couple of days, the frosting did harden up, but then was the consistency of... well... old frosting (dry/flaky). I'm sticking with the candy coating going forward. I will say that my son loved the peanut butter filling!

      I couldn't get the consistency of the chocolate frosting right so I just dipped in milk chocolate. The peanutbutter inside is divine though. Definitely a keeper!
