Cereal Peanut Butter Bon Bon and Meet my darling Niece

Soon after taking a bite of this crunchy creamy chocolatey bon bon, I started singing bon bon, bon bon…

Bon bon is a french word which means “good”. It refers to a chocolate or truffle confection. It need not be always covered with chocolate, sometimes any candy can be called as bon bon. Making homemade bon bon wouldn’t have struck my mind if I hadn’t seen the recipe of making peanut bon bon on the back of the Graham-cracker crumbs box. I told ya, I wouldn’t let go any of these recipes. I had bought a box of Graham-cracker crumbs for making lemon pie and had saved the remaining unused crumbs. I didn’t have to search anywhere for kool recipes as the back of the box had few recipes I could make with the crumbs. Of those recipes, the recipe for making bon bon drew my attention as it covered all my expectation of being easy breezy and quick yet yummy recipe. I didn’t procrastinate any longer, after making few variations to the actual recipe I instantly made this using ingredients that’s always found in my pantry.

I never thought that this easy recipe would give such delicious and exquisite outcome. This was unbelievably yummy and it tasted like peanut truffles. Anyone who tastes this would definitely think these are bought from some gourmet chocolate shops, and they are going to make you reveal the name of the shop and the recipe. This would be the proud moment for you, you could say with all dignity that you made this from scratch in your own gourmet kitchen.

The actual recipe called for Kellogg’s Rice krispies cereal and chocolate confectioner’s coating. But, I used my favorite Post Honey bunches of Oats cereal with almonds and covered the bon bon with melted chocolate morsels.

The crispy flakes, crunchy oats and the touch of honey from the cereal, the creamy peanut butter and the rich chocolate coated on it made this bon bon taste heavenly and hard for anyone to stop munching this. It’s that good, not just kids even old people are going to go crazy for these. Trust me!

Also, I haven’t shared this exciting news yet to my dear readers that I’ve become an Aunt for the first time to my beautiful niece, Aleena. She has completed her 53 days on this magnificent earth. She’s such a darling and is growing real fast. My new obsession is looking at her pictures and I never seem to get tired of seeing her. Waiting to embrace and play with her soon. God Bless her! Here is a picture of my doll:

Cereal Peanut butter Bon Bon:

Ingredients:

  • Cereal- 1 cup , I used honey bunches of oats with almonds
  • Graham-cracker crumbs- 1 cup
  • Peanut butter- 1 1/4 cups
  • Powdered sugar- 1/2 cup
  • Semi-sweet chocolate morsels or chips- 2 cups

Instruction:

  • In a large bowl, stir together the cereal, graham-cracker crumbs, peanut butter and powdered sugar without any lumps.

 

  • Keep the well combined mix in the refrigerator for one hour.

  • In the meantime, on a double-boiler melt the chocolate morsels or chips and let cool down.

  • Double-boiler: Boil water in a saucepan and place a glass bowl with the chocolate chips over the  pan making sure the bottom of the bowl is dipped in hot water.
  • After an hour, take the mix from the refrigerator.
  • Shape the crumbs into small balls, using one level tablespoon or ice cream scooper for each and place it on a baking sheet.

  • Dip each ball gently into the melted chocolate and let the chocolate cover the entire ball, letting excess drip off.

  • Place it on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and immediately refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.

  • You could store these in an airtight container for few days, I tell you there is no chance of any leftovers. You’ll be surprised to see how fast this is gobbled up by everyone in your house.

Tips:

  • You could use any kind of crispy cereal.
  • While coating the balls with chocolate be gentle as the balls tend to fall off.
