Bunny Tail Bonbons,

aka White Chocolate-Cheesecake Truffles,

adapted from Southern Living 

 Makes approximately 2 dozen bonbons

Ingredients

1 1/2 (4-oz.) white chocolate baking bars, melted according to package directions

1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened (I used Neufchâtel)

3/4 cup crushed coconut cookies, (I used Pepperidge Farm Sweet & Simple Coconut Cookies)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

1 – 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Preparation

1. Beat chocolate and cream cheese at medium speed with a mixer until smooth. Add cookies and next 2 ingredients, beating just until blended. Cover and chill 2 hours or overnight until ready to form the balls.

2. Shape into 1-inch balls (about 2 tsp. per ball), roll in coconut. Refrigerate in a single layer in a container up to 1 week.

Notes: This mixture is very sticky. Next time I would add a whole cup of crushed cookies or add 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans to the chocolate/cream cheese/cookie mixture for a little additional texture and crunch.

    Mary, you are the first blog that I’m visiting today, as I was drawn by the pretty colors in the thumbnail, and a sudden attack of hunger! I would love a bon-bon with my morning coffee. Your goodies are a beautiful blend of ingredients, beauty, and style. Each photo would be perfectly at home within the pages of SL. I’m pinning, Tweeting, and FBing your post. We wish you and your husband a joyful Easter. xxoo

    Every time I see that white bunny cake plate, it makes me want to hop in the SUV and go to Home Goods to get one! (if there are any left!) I have the green one, but the white one is calling my name! Face palm for not getting it when I saw it there. Got to add the ‘bunny tails’ to my recipes. Love how you displayed them! Have a Happy Easter!

    p.s. The local Wal-mart has the green mason jars now in both sizes.
