This sounds like a fun recipe: I'm posting it for anyone to try; I personally haven't made these and since I'm not a big chocolate person, I probably won't. But I'd like to hear from anyone who does try this recipe; I hope it makes Easter special for someone! Obviously I'm going to guesstimate prep and cook times; time includes candies sitting overnight.

I believe that powdered sugar has been omitted from the filling ingredients. It would be needed to make a 'nougat' type filling that could be kneaded.

I tried to make these...too much salt, and I think there might have been a typo error. You said "brown sugar, for dusting" but there was no additional sugar mentioned. Sorry, I had to throw the mixture away, it was awful. I could'nt nead it either, too sloppy. What did I do wrong, please help!
