Bon bons are my favorite Christmas treat! I can remember making these with my mom as a young child. Now, I make them with my kids. They love to dip them in chocolate. Sometimes it is one to dip in chocolate and one to taste.

Quality control takes out quite a few when three kids are doing the checks! My husband tends to hide a few for his own personal stash because they disappear so fast. It’s a good thing they are so easy to make!

For those of you who do not like chocolate, you can roll them in coconut or powdered sugar. They are delicious even without the chocolate!
