  • 1 box Brownie Mix prepared according to instructions (you can also use store bought if you are short on time)
  • 1 can Chocolate Fudge Frosting
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries or Old Smokey Moonshine Cherries
  • 2 bags Hollow chocolate balls approx. 2 dozen
  • 1 jar sprinkles optional


  1. Bake brownies according to box instructions- most box mixes call for eggs, oil, and water so make sure you have all these items on hand. You can also use a store bought pre made brownie if you are not a cook or baker, just get a 12 count. 

  2. Allow brownies to cool a least 1 hour after baking before continuing with the recipe. 

  3. In the meantime, you can prep your hollow chocolate balls, by cutting off the bottom selection, or poking a hole into them. Tip- I learned if trying to cut you may want to warm your knife first.

  4. Once cooled break up brownies into crumbs and stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate fudge frosting to make a thick batter like consistency. 

  5. Next take a spoon and stuff half the chocolate ball with brownie batter then add your cherry to the center. 

  6. Spoon more brownie batter to fill the ball completely. 

  7. Place upside down into a cupcake or decorative candy holder, so that the hole is on the bottom. This will also hold the bon bon in place too.  

  8. To add optional sprinkles, I used a kitchen torch to heat up the chocolate briefly, then add the sprinkles. 

  9. Finally I places all the bon bon's into the refrigerator until ready to serve.
