I just finished concocting my sinfully simple Oreo Bonbons for a holiday party we are going to tonight. They are so decadent and I thought it would not be very nice of me to not share the recipe.... (I'm on a roll here!)
Oreo Bonbons (I've heard a lot of different names for them, but that's what I call them)
(makes about 2 dozen bonbons, depending on the size you make them and how many Oreos you eat while making them... hehe)
1 package Oreos, double stuff plain or any other variety, they have mint and others (or any other creme-filled sandwich cookie, I've heard you can use Nutterbutters, etc)
1 block cream cheese, softened (I use 1/3 less fat, not like it really makes a difference calorie-wise, hehe)
melting chocolate wafers
-Crush cookies in a food processor.
-Put crushed cookies in a big bowl, mix in softened cream cheese with electric mixer.
-Chill mixture for 1 hour.
-Roll mixture into balls (maybe a little smaller than a pingpong ball) and set them on a tray lined with wax paper.
-Chill again for a bit if they seem a little soft.
-Dip balls in melted chocolate, I've found using a toothpick has given me the most success, you can use a spoon, too.
-If desired, drizzle colored, dark, or white melting chocolate to pretty them up. I used red and green this time to be a little more festive!
I did one batch of mint Oreos (the green ones) and one of peanut butter Oreos (the red ones).
