Abslute delight

Are you looking for a delicious, simple, low cal snack for those hot summer days? Well, sorry. You are not going to find low cal here! The rest I can handle! HEHE. Feast your eyes and tummy on these

Oreo Bon Bons!

My husband's work group just finished a big project, and I wanted to send something with him to celebrate. I was looking for something kind of simple, definitely sweet snacks, as well as something cool. Additionally, I wanted something I could keep a few of for this weekend, as we are having a few guests over, and anything to double duty is great!

So yes, Here is what I decided on... Yeah, yeah, I hear ya, enough with the back story :-)

You will need:

1 package Oreos

1 package cream cheese, softened
1 package white almond bark (I use only about 2 squares pack package of Oreos)
I always deviate from a recipe, so I'll walk through what I did, and then have the original at the end. You can choose what works for you!
First, use food processor to grind one package of Oreos. Yes, I did 2 batches, one plain oreo and one mint! I set aside a little (maybe 1/8 cup) of the original Oreo crumbs.





Next, add 1 package of cream cheese and blend.




Now, roll dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet.



Place cookie sheet and Oreo balls in freezer. I didn't time anything, as I walked away for awhile and came back. If I had to guess, it was about long enough to check my email, blog and twitter... :-)


However, while Oreo balls are chillin, it is helpful to start melting the almond bark!




Once almond bark is melted (and you have check all emails, blogs and Twitter), take Oreo balls out of the freezer. For the Mint Oreo balls, I dabbed a bit of almond bark on top, and gave them a sprinkle of green.





The regular Oreo balls, I just splattered almond bark on top!




Then I used the Oreo crumbs I had saved (pre-cream cheese) over the top!



Now, the finished product! I have found they actually taste the very best slightly chilled! YUMMY!



Now, I LOVE the mint ones, however I accidentally picked up mint double stuff. Sure, double stuff might seem like a terrific accident, however it made the Oreo balls gooey and sticky. I suggest keeping the double stuff ones to eat as is, and use the regular stuff mint for the bon bons!

  4. Oh. My. God. I'm in love with you for posting this idea.

    However, if I made these, I would *not* be able to keep them in the house. In fact, I would have to make them on a work night and take them (ALL of them) to work with me the following morning. Otherwise, I'd be sick from eating an entire batch by myself. Trust me. Not a pretty sight.
