Mocha Cakes - These are so good! I used to buy these at a wholesale bakery in Fredericton every year around Christmas. They were my sister's favorite.

I know an Irish family who also made these treats each year for St. Patrick's Day. The sweet frosting and salty crushed peanuts are an irresistible combination.
