BonBons Recipe

Well sorta a recipe...
More like instructions, because you don't really need a recipe.

They're that easy!

These are like the cake pops they sell at Starbucks...
Only I like them perfectly fine w/out the stick. :)

Bon bons

           1 Box Cake Mix 
           1 Jar Frosting
           1 Bag Chocolate Chips
           1 Tbsp Shortening

You can use whatever flavor cake and frosting that you like. I like to use super moist vanilla cake w/ vanilla frosting. You also can use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like. I prefer dark chocolate.

         Bake the cake according to directions on box.
         Remove cake from oven and let cool 5 min.
         Turn cake out into large bowl
         Dump your jar of frosting over cake
         Mix w/ hand mixer on med speed until thoroughly blended
         Using a cookie scooper or melon baller, scoop dough out onto 
                    a parchment lined cookie sheet
         Freeze for 1/2 an hour
          Remove from freezer and roll into round balls w/ your hands.

         Put a few inches of water in a small pot and simmer the water
         Place an oven safe bowl over the pot (Leaving over low heat)
         Pour chocolate and shortening into the bowl
         Stir until chocolate is melted
         Dip bon bons into chocolate (I like to use 2 forks)
         Place on wax paper to harden
         Top with sprinkles if you'd like

We had bon bons in our lil picnic last week. :)
