Article: Chicago’s sweetest spots are turning out chocolatey holiday treats
bon bon, 5410 N. Clark, (773) 784-9882
Sometimes it’s not what’s beneath the tree that matters, but the sweet stuff dangling from its branches. bon bon has found a way to make those branches pop with its gigantic chocolate ornaments ($25 each) — a sugar-fueled sentiment Wonka himself would’ve surely appreciated, or perhaps tried to claim as his own. Aside from their tiny tinfoil tops, the hollow balls (filled with tiny hard candies) are completely edible, but the hand-painted shells make these shiny treats too pretty to crack at first glance. The edible paint is imported from France and is typically a variety of multi-colored metallics, which creates a shiny swirled rainbow on each ornament. Fortunately, bon bon’s got a full stock of bite-size chocolates (ranging from chili-infused pyramids and Saigon cinnamon Buddhas to naughty Kama Sutra kits and rose-petal discs) to sate your sweet tooth until it’s time to chuck the tree.
