This is just one of the many candies I make at Christmastime. White candy coating makes them a nice change from the more common chocolate candies. —Florence Robinson, Lenox, Iowa

"Very disappointed with this recipe. Wanted to surprise sister-in-law who is a P.B. addict and has little time to bake. Followed recipe as written. First, could not roll the dough into balls. Kept pressing it and trying to force it to hold together. Mananged to get 11 balls that did not look like they were going to stay together, but I hoped when they cooled they would harden up. So I melted small amount of bark, and when I tried to dip the first one it came apart just trying to stick a toothpick in. Rolled the remainder in the bark and let them harden. Have no idea if they will crumble when she tries to bite into one, but I suspect they will. Waste if time and money. If you have encountered this problem, please let me know what you did differently so I can try them again. Won't take review without a star so I gave it one."
