Updated on November 28, 2014

Be Creative and Merry Christmas to you!

What is a bon-bon?

Have you ever heard this line, "Sitting around eating bon bons?" The word Bon to the french means "Good." Bon-bon, is a broad term for candy. It can be found in many forms and in France it is associated with hard candy, lollipops, and taffy to name just a few. Think of some of the phrases we use such as Bon Voyage meaning "A good trip", Bon appetite meaning "A good meal" so by putting Bon bon together, we have a doubly good mouth watering treat. In America it is pertaining to confections or truffles with many varieties. And who doesn't love a Truffle?

      You will love them peachpurple. I had made so much for my Christmas guests, that I did not get to them. They are my sons favorite, so I promised I will make them this week for our New Years celebration.
