Bon bons have been around for centuries. They are a small confection with an outer chocolate shell with a center made of peanut butter, fruits, nuts or caramel.

Though they first originated in France, you don’t have to go all the way there for these bliss balls.

The outer coating of a bon bon is always chocolate but you can decide what goes inside.
