  • Ready In

  1. In large bowl, combine margarine, confectioners' sugar, condensed milk, coconut, chopped walnuts and vanilla. Stir well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until mixture has thickened enough to roll into balls. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place close together, but not touching, on cookie sheets. Freeze until hard.
  2. While bonbons are freezing, line a cookie sheet or flat surface with waxed paper. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler, over, not in, simmering water. Stir until melted. Using a toothpick or a fork, dip each bonbon in the melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper to dry. When chocolate has hardened, store bonbons in plastic bag in the freezer.

the bon bons turned out great. I put the mixture in the fridge overnight. the balls rolled out perfect. I put tooth picks in them before they went into the freezer. I loved the receipe.

These are nummy!! I also used 3/4 cup sugar. I used ground pecans and two boxes of Bakers semisweet squares. I had no problems with the dough, as I left it in the fridge overnight. I would n...

These are awesome! I used real butter and didn't add the nuts. Also, I ended up using 2 bags of chocolate chips for coating. Very rich, a winner!

So delicious. I ran out of chocolate as well, so instead of using another bag of semisweet chips, I used 12 oz. of white almond bark melted with the 2 Tbsp. shortening. White bonbons are delicio...

These bonbons taste terrific! They were a little bit messy to make, but it was worth it! I suggest adding a little strawberry or orange extract and possibly some food coloring to "kick them up...

Good but VERY sweet. I make them every year during the holidays to give as gifts and the reaction is either love 'em or hate 'em. If you like rich desserts & coconut and chocolate these are bo...
