Bon Bon

What's the difference between a bon bon and a truffle?

I'm making different candies for gifts this year and I've been searching through recipes. Just wondering what's the difference between these two chocolate confections.

Bonbons are typically chocolate dipped candy with fondant in the middle. Most of the time the fondant is mixed with some kind of dried fruits or nuts.
Truffles are a mixture of chocolate and heavy cream. They are rolled into balls and then coated in something. The classic coating is cocoa powder. This is how they got the name, when rolled in cocoa powder they resemble a true black truffle( the ones that are harvested by pigs) the fungus.
