"this is like my favorite treat to eat during a movie so now I'm able to make at home while watching my Netflix rentals but these are even better. Just to be able to tell my hubby or friends....yes, I made these little bon bon treats created at home. It's quite impressive. you owe it to yourself to try this recipe...they are so much better than those little ones in a box. Oh and you can experiment with rice krispies,almonds...all kinds of ideas! Fun accomplishment"
