You'll have a hard time eating just one of these heavenly sweets. Inside the rich milk chocolate coating is a fudgy center with a hint of strawberry. Their white chocolate drizzle makes these bonbons even more special. —Brenda Hoffman, Stanton, Michigan

"The combination of the wafers and the strawberry jam in these is great! Serve these at Christmas!"

"I have made these year after year and they are AMAZING. They are difficult to roll into balls BUT the secret I have found that works every time is putting the mixture into the freezer for an hour. After this I use a little bit of room temp water and use it on my hands while forming the balls. It works perfectly as the mixture doesn't get stuck to my hands. Don't use too much though or it will end up a gooey mess! Once the balls are on wax paper they need to be placed back in the freeze again for about another hour before coating. Hope this helps."

"These were good, but next time I think I'll do raspberry jam and a bit of almond extract."

"Very good but do not roll into balls even after refrigerating overnight! Perhaps rolling in powder sugar may help? Any ideas?"
