Recipe tester Lena Cederham Birnbaum created this candy, which is really a cross between two confections. Its creamy texture is similar to that of a peanut butter cup; in appearance it resembles chocolate bark. Pack it in decorative boxes and tie with ribbons. It's too soft to eat at room temperature, so serve it chille
