Chocolate Bon Bons Ice Cream Recipe
Ice Cream: To make this delicious treat, you will only need three simple ingredients. The first two ingredients are the fillings for the ice cream. We wanted the taste of the bonbon to have some variation, so we made it using a combination of chocolate and vanilla ice cream.
Chocolate chips: If you already have ice cream, the only other thing you need is chocolate chips. The ice cream filling is given a rich and black covering thanks to the melted dark chocolate, which also forms a lovely shell as it solidifies.
- Gather two baking sheets and a baking pan and line them with parchment paper.
- Using a melon baller or ice cream scoop, form balls of chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Then, arrange them evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Freeze trays for an hour. Next, remove the balls and roll them into perfect circles as fast as possible. After that, return them to the baking sheet and freeze them for an additional half hour.
- Add dark chocolate chips to a heatproof dish and set aside until the end of the freezing time. Then, microwave them in 30-second intervals until melted and smooth. Alternatively, you may use a double boiler to melt the chocolate in the bowl. To cover the ice cream balls in chocolate, remove them from the freezer and use a fork or similar dipping utensil.
- In the end, remove any surplus chocolate from each Ice Cream Bonbon. Then, place them back on the baking sheets and return to the freezer to chill the chocolate. It ought to take no more than 20 minutes.

Add Your Own Twists!
- Ice Cream Flavour: Because the ice cream filling in this recipe is really simple, you may use whatever flavor of ice cream you choose besides chocolate and vanilla if you like. Ice cream with flavors like strawberry, cappuccino, Rocky Road, mint chocolate chip, or any of a broad range of other flavors would be delicious as a filling for a bonbon.
- Covering: Try it out with other kinds of chocolate if you like. Delicious options include milk chocolate, semisweet chocolate, and white chocolate. As an alternative to milk chocolate, you may use white chocolate as the basis for the Ice Cream Bonbons and then add a few drops of food coloring to the white chocolate for a colorful coating.
- Toppings: Candy ice cream may be topped with a wide range of decorative toppings. These coverings are provided as condiments. While the chocolate is still pliable, the bonbons should be dipped into a basin of sprinkles, sanding sugar, sprinkled coconut, sea salt, or broken chocolate sandwich biscuits. You could also use crushed peppermint to cover ice cream bonbons and offer them as a Christmas treat. If you don’t want the ice cream to melt before the topping is applied, you’ll need to move swiftly.
Bon Bons are a great dessert, and the fact that you can add your own twists to them just makes them a whole lot better.
