These Bon-bons are a favorite from my childhood. The coconut is not an optional item in my book it adds great dimention to the recipe. They really are so good and everyone thinks they are very special when given as a present. Just be sure your chocolate is not too warm when dipping, so you get a nice thick coating of chocolate on them.
