Chocolate Cream Bonbons

My grandmother gave me this tasty recipe when I was a girl. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of her huge kitchen and all the delicious treats she made. —Joan Lewis, Reno, Nevada

    sure sounds good! haven't made them yet, but going to soon. Thanks, LOVE taste of home magazine, have made lots of stuff out of it!! Do any of you have the recipe for DAIRY STATE FUDGE? I had it and lost it! It is made of almond bark, cream cheese, pecans, and real butter. delicious, but I think there was another ingredient, and cannot remember what it was IF there was another one! Hope someone has it! Thanks, Bonnie Stice It may have been called WISCONSIN STATE FUDGE

    My mother also made these and they are delicious! You can delete the pecans and add different extracts to the mixture like rum, cherry, maple,or peppermint. In addition, coconut can be rolled into mixture before dipping in chocolate.D.Vogt
