• Oreo Bonbons!! Posted on September 18, 2013


    Oreo Bonbons!! Today I am sharing another fantastic Oreo recipe with you all! What is an Oreo BonBon?! Well, it is basically a truffle-like Oreo fudgey {not sure that's a real word} center that is dipped in chocolate. The best part is the are easy to make, and everyone love them (so, make extra!!).

    Ingredients:
    1 package of regular oreos
    1 block of 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese (not sure why, but the 1/3 fat works best)
    Milk chocolate (for tempering or melting)

    Directions:

    1) Take your package of Oreos, and place the entire cookie in a food processor. I use a little kitchen aid appliance that purees the Oreos down into tiny little crumbs.

    2) Take your block of cream cheese and place it in the bowl with the cookie puree.
    *If you are using a double stuff Oreo, maybe cut down the block of cream cheese a tiny bit.

    3) Use your hands and mix the cream cheese in with the Oreos. This part is kinda messy, but is the best way to really get everything mixed really well. Once combined, form the mixture into little balls and place on a waxed cookie sheet.

    4) Once all of the cookie mixture has been formed into little balls, place the cookie sheet in the freezer to cool them quickly, about 10 minutes. This will help the chocolate coating to stick and cool to the bonbon quicker.

    5) Now it's time to dip them in chocolate! Take your chocolate pieces and melt or temper. Use a toothpick or fork to dip each bonbon into chocolate.

    6) Place the bonbon back on the cookie sheet while it cools. Finish dipping every bonbon in chocolate and then you are done! Keep the bonbons stored in the refrigerator or keep them in the freezer until your party so they will be colder longer and can sit out on a table for an hour or two.

    7) Purchase colored melting chips (usually it is vanilla flavored) at your local craft store in the baking section. Melt it according to the package. Place the melted vanilla chips in a bag and clip a very small opening in the corner of the bag to decorate the bonbons. A different color for every holiday!!

    *Want more suggestions?! Try using mint, peanut butter, all chocolate or other flavored Oreos to give your bonbons a twist! I will let you in on a little secret, mint oreos with a dark chocolate outer layer is so delicious and perfect for winter! My next combination I want to try that I haven't yet; peanut butter Oreos with a white chocolate coating.

    Have fun experimenting with your Oreo bonbons! I am certain they will be a big hit at your next get-together.
