Canned Frosting Candy

I'm trying to find an easy recipe for candy that my mother used to make.  It only had a few ingredients, but the only ones I remember were canned frosting and butter.  She would mix it together and roll it into balls and refrigerate.  When the candy was chilled, she would dip it in melted chocolate and return it to the refrigerator.  You can use any flavor of frosting and they would taste like buttercreams.  I lost the recipe after she died and I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to re-create it.  I guess I am leaving something out.  I am hoping that someone else may have a similar recipe that they would share.  Thanks for any help that you can give me.

I think if you leave out the butter it may work...As long as the chocolate frosting is left in the fridge for a few hours.  I think it may be too sweet though.

Frosting balls

Make balls out of homemade frosting or canned. Chill.  Dip in melted chocolate mixed in Parifin wax . Set on wax paper Yummie!

Could it be this one? http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/828/Peanut-Butter-Bon-Bons109943.shtml

1 can ready to spread vanilla frosting
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can desired flavor ready to spread frosting


In large bowl, combine vanilla frosting, peanut butter and margarine with form until well blended. Stir in graham cracker crumbs until well mixed. Form into 1" balls; refrigerate 1 hour.

In a small saucepan , melt second can of frosting over low heat, stirring occasionally. Using fork or toothpick, dip chilled balls into melted frosting; allow excess to drip off. Place on wire racks over waxed paper; let stand at room temperature until coating is set, about 6 hours.
My mother used to rely on a lot of Betty Crocker recipies while I was growing up, so thought I'd throw that out there. If this is the recipe, maybe your mother just substituted real chocolate in the last step for a second kind of frosting. Good luck recapturing a yummy memory! :)

Melt one package of semisweet chips. Put them in a glass bowl in microwave approx 1 min maybe longer.  Remove and stir it until all chips are smooth.  Next add frosting to the melted chips stir well until completely mix. You can add nut if you wish. Pour into a greased 8x8pan.  Let cool cut and serve.  To store place in air tight container.       Enjoy...Smile

Note: you can use different chips and frosting for a varitiey.  One thing DO NOT use the white chips as they will not melt well. 

If they are melting when you dip them you might stiffen up the frosting by adding powdered (confectioners) sugar.
