This recipe was made by my mother only around Christmas time. Now, I carry on the tradition of this sweet confection.

Directions

  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 bonbons were good. My friends liked them alot, although I find them too sweet. I only used less than 3/4 cups of confectioners' sugar, if not, it would have been way too sweet. I added a little more walnuts too, since I like a nuttier flavor. And I would suggest melting at least 400-500g of chocolate. I did not prepare enough and had to rummage my cupboards for leftover pieces of couverture. Ended up having an assortment of bonbons, which wasn't bad.

This recipe is very easy to make and tastes like See's Candy! I use Black walnuts with Black Walnut flavoring, Rum, Maple, and Brandy flavors with pecans and walnuts. I also use 1/4 block of parafin in the chocolate to make them more firm and keeps them from melting in your hands. YOu can also cover candied cherries with the fondant then dip in the chocolate. Try them! You will love them. People go nuts over them when given as a gift!
