COOKIES & CREME BONBONS:
1/2 cup cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs
1 pound white candy coating, melted
54 maraschino cherries (about two 10-ounce jars), patted dry
1 pound milk chocolate candy coating, melted
- In a large bowl, combine butter and milk. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until a smooth dough is formed. Divide in half; cover with plastic wrap.

Dip into milk chocolate coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until firm. Store in an airtight container. Yield:9 dozen.
