Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The word “bonbon” comes from the French “bon,” meaning good. Typically, they are sweet chocolaty morsels that melt in your mouth. However, this cheese bonbon recipe is savory rather than sweet, with cheese, flour, pecans, and butter being the main ingredients. Cheese bonbons are great to take to a potluck or served as an hors d’œuvre.
