How do I get squid peers to talk SSL to each other?

How would I set up a pair of squid proxies so that one uses the other as a parent and all traffic between them is encrypted using SSL? I’ve read the cache_peer documentation, but it’s all very fuzzy to me which certs I need to create (and how), which server uses which cert, and so on. Is there a straightforward HOW-TO for this somewhere?

Just to be clear, I don’t want to know how to setup squid to proxy https requests, or as a reverse proxy for a web server that uses https.
