If you like peanut butter, and coconut crean candy then this recipe is for you. Out of one mix you will get two different candy, diped in chocolate. One is like a peanut butter cup, the other is like a mounds bar. This recipe is so easy to make, and you get a lot of candy from one mix.I found this resipe years ago and I use it a lot.
