This is my first time making any kind of candy, but I've certainly sampled a lot. So, of course I was looking for something super tasty AND super easy. These Bon Bon Balls worked wonderfully.

I was too cheap to buy almond meal, and remembered that I had a jar of cocoa roast almonds (made by Emerald) in my pantry already opened. I processed those until fine and omitted a bit of the cocoa powder that was called for in this recipe. Everything else, I followed exactly. It was a quick zip in the food processor once both the almonds and the wafers were ground, and a beautiful dough-like substance formed.

Super easy, super quick, SUPER good. I cannot imagine how delicious these babies will taste on Christmas day. I must've rolled mine a bit too big as I got about 26 balls out of mine.

Really yummy!! I could only find a small bag of almond meal for $16, so I just bought pecans and ground them myself. Love the flavor with amaretto, thank-you!

I made a batch of these almost a week ago and had to make more last night! They are great. I made exactly by recipe and I got about 40 2 bite bon bons. I think they should be re-rolled in powdered sugar/cocoa mix before serving. After sitting for a week they have absorbed most of the original coating and need more to be pretty on a serving tray in mini muffin cups. I will be giving these for gifts and serving them on Xmas Eve. Thanks for a great recipe!

Heavenly! These are just great for little gifts this Christmas when my BF and I visit his parents and grandparents. I also just love the taste of amaretto and wanted to find a recipe that used it to put some of my own homemade amaretto liquer in. I could barely keep my hands out of the bon bons as they aged. I actually had to hide them or else my BF would have eaten them all before the week was up! The taste is rich, yet not too sweet or chocolatey, but lets the taste of the amaretto come through. I never would have guessed the base for this recipe would have been vanilla wafers and pecan meal! I used a store brand vanilla wafer but a high quality cocoa powder and my own homemade amaretto... sooo yummy! Thanks for sharing!

OOOOOOO My my my these are GOOOOOOOOD! My husband came in with a bottle of Disaronno and said, " I love this stuff, can you fix a cake or somthing/"(I had just made a cake with cinnimon schapps the wk before and he loved it) I loved and decided this was it so he could still "taste" the liquor in it. I am so glad so my decision they did not even set the wk they were GONE in three days tops I even tried to hide a wk to see if they would improve with age but he about cried when they were gone so I caved in and pulled out the ones i had stashed. I will have to make these again without telling him but I don't know how I will keep myself out of them. thanks for sharing!!!
