we used to make this when I was a kid but now we can't find the recipe. They are peanut butter, oats, coconut all confectioner's sugar mixed together then dipped in chocolate. ok so i know the ingredients but no proportions. Anyone know this one??

Shara,

You must have been a chubby little kid! :D

(So was I, and I'm still chubby now!)

It can't be that hard to figure out the right proportions---just start with equal amounts of peanut butter and oats, add a bit of coconut and a spoonful of sugar, and mix it all up.

Sample a small bit, then adjust the mixture, if necessary, to your current taste. And, as the French say, Viola!

I'm curious as to what kind of chocolate you want to dip them in: Hershey's syrup? Some melted baker's chocolate? The former is available in Moscow; the latter can be substituted for by breaking up an AlpenGold dark chocolate bar.

Was thinking of making it when I go home to the states this Christmas. It's usually quite challenging and expensive to find all the things I need for cooking my favorite American foods.

Actually, Captain, I WAS a little chub pot. Go figure ;)

that's nothing compared to their thanksgiving frozen turkey mark up
2000 rubles for a 5.6kg turkey! holy crap. my friends D#mn well better have enjoyed it! I'm making sure to eat every last scrap no matter how sick I am of left over turkey...

stockmann's is a total rip off although the selection they have is amazing.

Yes - I saw that - 300 plus roubles per kilo for Butterball turkey. Meanwhile, Expat.ru is swarming with turkeys, free of charge :p
