Why Rose Coconut Bonbons?

Why did I made Rose chocolate Bonbons?

The idea of making this Rose Coconut Bonbons came from my daughter.Once when we were chatting,she asked me whether she can suggest me a recipe to do?When I asked what,She said to make a red coconut ball with red food coloring and roll in chocolates.I didn’t know from where she got the idea.But I liked it and soon tried to  make it.The result is this Rose Coconut Bonbons.Loved it.Outside soft chocolate thin coating with bite of crunchy coconut.I thank my daughter for giving me the idea.
