These NO BAKE Peanut Butter Bon Bons are so addicting! They are really good on their own, but dipping them chocolate takes them over the top.
Peanut Butter Bon Bons
If you’ve ever wanted to live up to the age-old joke about sitting around all day eating bon bons, make sure you’re enjoying these delicious peanut butter bon bons while you do it. Come on, you deserve a little break!
You can dip these Peanut Butter Bon Bons in any kind of chocolate. We did white chocolate this last time, but we have done milk and dark as well. They are all good. These are also perfect for chocolate fountains or fondue, it will be the first dipping treat to go. We’ve used these for weddings and showers and all kinds of parties. They are also a super yummy center filling if you want to just make them as a dipped chocolate.
Go ahead, sneak a taste
When I was making these up I couldn’t stop picking at the mix. I just love the coconut in it. It’s awesome because unlike cookie dough you can pick away without worrying about getting salmonella. We got this recipe years ago from our cousin Jill and it has quickly become a family favorite. I love making these for Valentines Day because it is a fun fondue dessert.
They also make a great Christmas candy, if you’re one who enjoys dipping your own Christmas candies and boxing them up for neighbors and friends. It’s a beautiful, delicious, personalized gift.

We just loved these and the kids went crazy over them, going to make them again for Easter!
My family loved these! We will definitely make them again.
One was not enough, I was tempted to eat them all! 🙂 Love how simple this recipe is to make!
These really are addicting!! Love how creamy & smooth they are. We love dipping them!
The problem with these is that I want to eat too many, but they’re so good!
Loving this recipe! I totally want to sit around all day munching on these, lol.
These look incredible! Can’t wait to nose dive into the bon bon world with these babies!
These have been some of the best and easiest recipe’s I’ve ever found.
I’m so glad I found these. Thank you…
Thank you so much! Point we are so glad you found them too 🙂
what can you use for the graham cracker crumbs as I would like to make them but its not avaliable in my area in the uk
Do you have graham crackers available to you? You can place graham crackers in a sealed plastic bag (do your best to seal out the air) and using a rolling pin crush the graham crackers into fine crumbs. If you don’t have graham crackers available in your area, you can make your own. There are several recipes available on the internet for homemade graham crackers. I hope this helps!
Echo, you can use plain crushed digestive biscuits. I live in Australia and have the same problem, but I use digestives whenever a biscuit base or a graham cracker crust is called for.
Thank you so much for the recommendation! We don’t have digestive biscuits here, but it sounds like they would work great.
I would use crushed digestive biscuits.
Thank you for the suggestion! I will pass it on.
Beth, we have had a couple of suggestions for you to use digestive biscuits in place of graham crackers for the peanut butter bon bons recipe. Do you have digestive biscuits in the UK?
You could try crumbling a cookie like vanilla wafers or something similar.
Can you leave the coconut out of this recipe without hurting the the base of the bon bon?
Yes, you should be able to leave it out and it will be fine 🙂
Can you dip in chocolate and then refrigerate? I would like to make these ahead.
Yes, they would be delicious that way!
There is no such thing as white chocolate. that is an oxymoron
Love your recipes…….
Thank you Debra! We are so happy you like them!
