    Notes: The Honey Peanut butters make a nice candy also. On the coatings you can skip the candy coating and roll them in cocoa powder. However, one of my favorite ways to make these are to make the bon bon, then dip it in vanilla candy coating then immediately roll in chocolate cookie crumbs. I usually use oreos. Once you have melted your candy, place your pan on a heating pad set on high. That is one of my biggest tips, buy a heating pad specifically for your kitchen.
