Why I Love This Recipe

Sweet and rich, chocolate has a crisp bite and the sweet tartness of the cherry filling is a good combination.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups finely chopped toasted pecans
1 quart vanilla ice cream or flavor of your choice
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules


Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; place in freezer to keep cold. Place pecans in a shallow bowl.

Working quickly, scoop ice cream with a melon baller to make 3/4-in. balls; immediately roll in pecans. Place on prepared pan; freeze at least 1 hour or until firm.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Stir in coffee granules until dissolved; cool completely.

Working quickly and in batches, use a toothpick to dip ice cream balls into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined pan; remove toothpick. Return to freezer; freeze until set. For longer storage, transfer bonbons to a covered freezer container and return to freezer.

Pairs Well With

Vanilla ice cream
