Recipes Worth Trying: Maple Cream Bonbons

Recipes Worth Trying by Sue Miklovic

I love to try new recipes often, especially for special holidays, birthdays, and events. I was looking for something I thought My Love would like for Valentine’s Day, and decided to give this recipe a try. I found it on Pinterest. It is called Maple Cream Bonbons, and it originally came from Taste of Home.

They are delicious little candies, and JP definitely liked them, much more than the cheesecake filled strawberries dipped in chocolate that I made him last year.

If maple is a favorite of yours, give them a try.

1 cup butter, softened

3-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

3 tablespoons maple flavoring

2 cups chopped walnuts (I used pecans)

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch chips



In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and maple flavoring until smooth. Stir in walnuts. Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Freeze until firm.

In a microwave , melt chips; stir until smooth. (Instead of the microwave, I melted mine in a small crockpot. Note: I also do this when I make “Buckeyes”)
