For these bon bons I used a 1 1/2″ cookie dough scoop. The mixture will be dry and crumbly but that is ok, the bon bons shouldn’t fall apart once rolled into a ball. Release the ball from the dough scoop on the palm of your hand and give it a little squeeze, just enough to release the oils, then roll it. Don’t worry if they don’t turn out completely smooth, they will be cover with chocolate and you won’t be able to see the texture.
I used a combination of bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate, and the flavor was perfect. you can also use white chocolate or almond bark of your choice.
I always like to melt the chocolate on a double boiler because I feel like I can control de temperature of the chocolate better. Just fill a saucepan with about an inch of water and bring it to medium low heat. Once it starts to simmer, turn the heat to low and place the bowl with chopped chocolate on top. just keep the water on a gentle simmer and make sure the bowl with chocolate doesn’t touch the water. Stir until all the chocolate is melted and remove from heat. If you choose to melt the chocolate in the microwave, melt the chocolate in intervals of 30 seconds and stir after each time.
