Filled Candy Breaks Apart When Bitten

My filled candy breaks apart when bitten, making it a messy treat.

Sorry, but I just couldn't find an answer through the Q&A search. Here's my problem...

I have made chocolate filled candy using molds (peanut butter eggs, coconut eggs, butter creams, caramels).

They look and taste good but when you bite into it, the chocolate breaks apart on the whole piece and it becomes a mess to eat. After one bite, you have to pop the remaining candy in your mouth. It seems the chocolate is too hard for the filling.

I painted the mold with a lighter coating of chocolate but it didn't help much because you can only make it so light before the filling shows through.

The chocolate in the molds is firmly set and the filling is room temperature.

Any suggestions? Your help is really appreciated.
