  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.

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...
