  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Condensed Milk
  2. In a saucepan, combine raw sugar, whole milk, vanilla, and 2 TB of butter over medium heat and whisk well.
  3. Once everything is combined and reaches a low simmer, turn heat to low. Simmer for about 30 minutes or until mixture reduces to 1 cup. Whisk every so often.

  10. Once chocolate mixture is ready, pull out the frozen centers and dip them one at a time into the chocolate mix until coated.
  11. Use a toothpick to pull out of chocolate and place the coated bonbons onto wax paper.
  12. Return to freezer when all bonbons are coated.
  13. Freeze for 30 minutes.

Notes

  • I like to leave the bonbons in the freezer and will pull them out right before I am going to eat them or before guests arrive. After they sit out for a while they will have condensation on them from temperature change, but I feel they hold their shape and last longest in the freezer.
