It is a very subtle difference. Our best attempt to describe it would be: Bonbons have a chocolate outer layer. They can be either made via molds or via an enrobing/dipping process. In this case the inside could be a ganache (mix of cream and chocolate), a praline or other ingredients such as heavy cream, caramels, nuts, raisins, etc. Truffles, on the other hand, have a chocolate based filling that could be a "ganache" or praline inside and are usually covered on its outer layer with non chocolate coverings like: sugar and sliced nuts among others. In the case of the wild truffle for example, it is covered with cocoa powder.
