I just this past weekend had my first trip to a Paula Deen Buffet in Tunica, MS at Harrah's. I LOVED it. I believe that I had theses Coconut bon bons there and they were as Paula says Out of this world. The lady working the dessert bar told me they were in one of the cook books but couldn't find the recipe in any of the cook books and I have all of Paula's. I can't say enough good things about the buffet, everything that I ate was wonderful, especially the cream corn, fried chicken and these bon bons. Thanks
