About Powered by Mom

I’m Michelle aka Powered by Mom. I’m married with one daughter, my hubby was my high school sweetheart, our two dogs Nyx and Cleo and our cat Oliver. As you can see we’re a family of animal lovers. We love to travel when we can, try different food and activities all over the world and enjoy being together. My passions are writing, travelling, creating new recipes, encouraging people to adopt not shop and just to enjoy life while we can.

As an animal lover I also volunteer with a rescue organization called Three Little Pitties All Breed Rescue. I'm part of the cat program Three Little Kitties Saving Kitties which tries to save as many cats as possible in Houston, Texas which has a huge overpopulation fo cats and they euthanize far too many cats (and dogs) we want to change that.

    Oh yummy, all that pop in your mouth, sweet, delicious, crunchy goodness. These would disappear in a flash if when we make them. Thanks for the recipe and the freezing tip.

    You had me at Chocolate!! I appreciate the step-by-step visual instructions, it makes the recipe very user friendly.

    WOW … I am not the worst cook around but baking, cakes, candy etc never turns out for me…. BUT I love to look at the pictures and hope somebody will make them for me :-0

  5. Angela Smith says

    these look and sound really yummy.and not too hard to make and not too many ingredients,i’m going to have to make them

  6. Tracy Robertson says

    I like that these don’t have a zillion ingredients and I could make them fairly easily. I think they would be as yummy as any gourmet chocolates and it would be much less expensive to make them than buy a similar product.

  7. Cecilia Pipitone-Oliveto says

    I am going to have to try the recipe for the Chocolate Coconut Bon Bon’s. Chocolate and coconut are two of my favorite things and these look and sound delicious.

  8. Renee Rousseau says

    Perfect recipes for Valentine’s Day! I think I could pull off both the Chocolate bon bons and the Flan! Yum! Hope he shares! (Maybe I should make an extra batch or two!)

    I bet my mom would love these! She loves coconut and her and my 10 year old daughter sat and at a whole pound of truffles on Christmas day! haha Silly girls.

  10. Kelly says

    These look so yummy. I made truffles one year and had such fun with them. Each one decorated with different things on top. I bet these would be fun to make (and of course eat) 🙂

  11. Brigid OHara Koshko says

    Those bon bons look amazing! I am trying very hard to eat healthy this year, but those bon bons may make me change my mind!

  12. Karen Dietrich says

    The Chocolate Coconut Bon Bons sound great (minus nuts for my health reasons). Can’t wait to try them!

  13. Linda Manns says

    These bon bons sound so good. I love the ingredients. I could gain a few pounds fast on these. Thank you so much for sharing

    I just saw this on your Instagram page and had to come check out the recipe. It actually looks doable! Do the finished bon bons have to be stored in the refrigerator after the chocolate sets, or would they be okay at room temperature? (I’m thinking that if I made them for a gift, it would be awkward to keep the package in the refrigerator.) Thanks!

  15. Lauryn R says

    Yummy, I love bon bons!! I also love the combination of chocolate and coconut, it is one of my favorites! 🙂 Thanks for sharing how to make them!

  16. Celeste Herrin says

    Oh my gosh, I have been looking for bon bons in the stored for years! Now I can make my own. Thank you so much for this recipe!

  17. Debbie Welchert says

    I too love coconut and I can’t wait to try this recipe. No one else likes coconut in the house so I won’t have to worry about sharing. They will be all mine. Yummy!

  18. Vickie says

    I love chocolate and coconut too.
    I made Truffles today..cocoa, walnut, coconut and cherry ..not as pretty as yours here.
    Thanks for the recipe
