Peanut Butter Bon Bons

These Peanut Butter Bon Bons are SO addicting! They are really good on their own, but dipping them chocolate takes these over the top.

Peanut Butter Bon Bons Recipe

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.


When I was making these up I couldn’t stop picking at the mix, I 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.

    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

    • Echo says:

      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.

        • Echo says:

          Thank you so much for the recommendation! We don’t have digestive biscuits here, but it sounds like they would work great.

    • Mona B says:

      I would use crushed digestive biscuits.

      • Echo says:

        Thank you for the suggestion! I will pass it on.

    • Echo says:

      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?

    • Irene says:

      You could try crumbling a cookie like vanilla wafers or something similar.
