Bon Bons

 I made these the other night for my recipe group.  
I'd forgotten how good they are...


 They're really easy.  Just a little time consuming.  
I've been snacking on them for days (not good).  
I suggest quickly giving them away to friends and neighbors!


So here's the recipe ~

Mix together:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup grated coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla 


Form 1" balls and dip into:
1 pound of milk chocolate pieces for fondue and candy making
(start with a half pound and melt more as needed)

They will be ready to serve in a matter of minutes!
I ended up refrigerating my leftover Bon Bons which
caused the chocolate to harden (which added a nice texture).  

This recipe makes approximately 45 Bon Bons.
 

These are a nice do-ahead treat.
Perfect for holiday gift giving!
