    Heat chocolate chips in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Spread over crumb mixture. Immediately sprinkle with candy decorations. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. (To cut diamond shapes, first cut straight parallel lines 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart down the length of the pan. Second, cut diagonal lines 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart across the straight cuts.) Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

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.
