Ok here is a fun recipe for you.  I saw it on a cooking show and tried it, and I have to say yummo.  I made some and gave it to friends and they all loved it. The photo is from the batch I made.

Reindeer Poop

2014-12-08 12.41.17Ingredients

100g unsalted butter, chopped, room temperature

200g smooth peanut butter

200g icing sugar (confectioners’ sugar) I used Xylitol icing sugar as hubby is diabetic

¼ cup Dutch cocoa, sifted

1 ½ cups dry roasted peanut

300g good quality dark chocolate, chopped

1 /12 tablespoons (30g) copha

Extra Dutch cocoa to dust

Method

Put butter, peanut butter, icing/confectioners’ sugar and cocoa into a bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium, using paddle attachment for 10 minutes or until very light. Fold in peanuts. Spoon mixture into paper cake cases, make it uneven lumps. Refrigerate for about an hour until firm.

Put chocolate in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, make sure bowl doesn’t touch water (or melt in microwave). Remove from heat and whisk in copha.

Either dip peanut chunks into chocolate or pour some over them and return to refrigerator and chill.

Dust with extra cocoa if you would like.

I keep them in the fridge otherwise they go soft.
