Expert Tips

Instead of pressing crumb mixture into pan, shape it into 1-inch balls. Heat chocolate chips or white baking chips with 1 tablespoon shortening. Dip the balls into melted chocolate, using tongs, to coat and place them on a sheet of waxed paper. Decorate with candies if desired and then refrigerate the bonbons until firm.
