Maple Peanut Delights

I found this recipe from Country Woman November/December 1999 magazine. This is the 1st year I have made them, but they are pretty good!

Maple Peanut Delights

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
6 cups confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 pounds dark chocolate candy coating (I just used the brown almond bark)
1 cup chopped peanuts

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, confectioner's sugar, and favoring until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Shape into 1 inch balls. Melt coating. Dip balls into coating then sprinkle with nuts. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate. Yield: about 8 dozen.

Our Notes: We found that the balls need to be stuck in the freezer and frozen really hard before dipping. It worked a lot better. Not sure it actually makes 8 dozen. But they are pretty good.
