This is a cute little candy that can be used as a party favor or just for the holidays. I have not made them yet for this year, but it resembles a mini cupcake. It just a perfect little bite of peanut butter and whatever kind of frosting you decide to use. They look wonderful on a tray of goodies and they are so easy to make. It is a little different from fudge but tastes just a good. You can decorate them as intricate as you like or just a simple rosette or button. Enjoy.

    For this part I used a cap from a Gatorade bottle as they are a nice size, but if you have candy mold that would definitely work better. Pinch off a small piece of the candy and roll in the granulated sugar and press into the Gatorade lid. Then remove and place on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

    With your favorite frosting, pipe a rosette in the middle of the candy you can use a plastic bag also. Allow them to air dry for about 1 hour then cover them and let them set overnight.
