Fruit nut Chocolate Bonbons

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup hot water (brandy may be substituted for a few tbs of water)
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 3/4 cup seedless raisins
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 1/2 cups cake meal
  • sugar or finely chopped nutmeats for garnish

Combine the sugar, spices, honey and water in a 1 quart saucepan. Cook over low heat until the syrum forms a thread (232 degrees F on a candy thermometer). Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and oil. Add the raisin, walnuts and cake meal. Blend thoroughly and quickly. Form into 1 inch balls and roll each in the sugar or nutmeats. Place the bonbons into individually tea-sized paper cups and chill until firm. Makes approx. 24.
