Bon Bons

Dish: Candies & Sweets
Dish Type: Other
Difficulty: 5 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time: none

  • 1 can - condensed milk
  • 2 cubes - margarine or butter
  • 2 pounds - powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon - vanilla
  • 1 14 ounce bag - coconut
  • 1 cup - chopped nuts
  • 18 ounces - chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bar - parowax


Mix all together and refrigerate for at least 2 hours .   Roll into small balls.

Meanwhile melt 18 oz. of chocolate chips and 1/2 bar of parowax over low heat.  I use a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water.  Dip balls into chocolate wih toothpick.  Set aside to dry. 


These taste better after they have set for 4 or 5 days.  The coconut filling will soften and mellow.  My grandchildren love to help dip them.  Messy for the kids but loads of fun.
