No Bake Chocolate Peppermint Bon Bons are quick and easy; they can be made in 15-20 minutes and contain only 6 ingredients. No microwave or conventional oven is needed, yet the finished cookies have the texture of baked cookies. With the flavors of chocolate and peppermint, these delicious cookies are perfect to include on a holiday cookie tray, or as a part of a holiday buffet.
No Bake Chocolate Peppermint Bon Bons can be made at least a month ahead (they actually taste better after they’ve been stored for a week or so), so they are a good choice for early holiday baking (or in this case not baking). They’re easy enough for kids to help with or even make on their own, and kids and adults alike will enjoy eating them.
