Oreo Bon Bons

One of my favorite things about the internet is the ability to get inspiration and ideas from tons of talented people in the blogosphere. Recently, I stumbled across a blog called Jamie Cooks It Up! When I stumbled across the blog the other night I literally spent two hours looking at every recipe she has posted. I love finding great cooking blogs because I get so tired of cooking the same stuff week after week.

When I ran across her Oreo Bon Bon recipe I knew I wanted to try it ASAP. I'm not a huge fan of cake pops. I know they are all the rave right now, but personally I can't see taking the time to make a cake just to crumble it up and mix in a little icing. These Oreo Bon Bons are extremely simple to make and are delicious!

You will need the following:

One package of Oreo's (Any flavor)
One 8oz package of cream cheese
Candy Melts (I always use Wilton which you can buy at Walmart or Michael's)

Put the entire package of oreo's in your blender and mix until the cookies are crushed.

Add the package of cream cheese. I cut mine up in three sections to mix easier.

Mix oreo crumbs and cream cheese until they are completely combined. I think I should have mixed the oreo's a little longer but I was excited and couldn't wait any longer. At this point, I wanted to take a spoon to the bowl and dig in. It smelled delicious but I am a huge fan of cream cheese.

Place your mixture in an air tight container and put it in the freezer for 20 minutes.

I used a small melon baller to make small balls of this oreo goodness. I did roll them in my hand for a few seconds to get a smooth to edges a little. At this point, I put them back in the freezer while I was melting the candy melts.

I used yellow and white because I had them on hand already and I thought the colors were good for Easter. I dropped them in the melted candies and used a fork to get them out. I used the remaining melted candies for additional decorations by drizzling it on top.

Once they dried (about 15 minutes) I put them in a yellow polka dot tin to carry them to our Easter gathering. They were a huge hit. I really liked the golden oreo's but I plan on making them with the chocolate oreo's also.

This was the easiest recipe I have tried in a long time. If you haven't stopped by Jamie Cooks It Up! I would hop over and check out some of her fabulous recipes. She cooks very family friendly meals, everything seems quick, easy and practical.
