Chocolate Bonbons - Tutorial by ElwynAvalon Chocolate Bonbons - Tutorial by ElwynAvalon
The tutorial for Chocolate Covered Bonbons.

I forgot to write it in, but I got 3 1/2 baking sheets full of candies out of this recipe. It makes an awful lot. ^^

Enjoy!

They're delicious! (Not to tout my own wares or anything. :XD:)
They go together really quick too!

do you think I could use very thick cream instead of condensed milk or something else?

I don't think it would work exactly the same way, but it might keep everything together. The sweetened condensed milk already has a high sugar content, and the glutinous quality keeps things together. If you use cream I would start out using very little, and add the powdered sugar in increments. You'll probably need a lot of sugar to get it past the "icing" stage and to something that is thick enough to work with your hands.
I'd start out with a quarter of a cup of cream, that's an easy to experiment amount, that'll go a long way without robbing you of all of your sugar. Then over-saturate it with sugar and see if it reaches the right consistency. ^_~

Thank you for your answer. I was thinking about using mascarpone too, I guess I'll have to experiment a little :giggle:

I tried this recipe and couldn't get the sugar, milk, and extract to work. I ended up adding three times the amount of sugar (which was about an extra bag o.O) and it still wasn't enough to form much more than melting lumps of sugar. It was fun to try, at any rate. ^^

when you put the dough balls into the chocolate, is the chocolate still on the fire? I want to try these for valentine's day~ :3

Ack! Sorry! I'm so behind in replying! ><
I realize it's way after Valentine's Day, so I hope they turned out! But yes, keep the chocolate on the stove, but turn the temperature down a bit to keep it from burning.

they didn't come out quite as pretty as yours, but they taste pretty yummy. I used a banana extract, they kinda taste like circus peanuts. Those orange puffy ones that are marshmallow textured. lol
