Last month, we trekked all the way up to Minnesota to celebrate my youngest sister's High School graduation. Though the drive was long, the trip was worth it, because while there I discovered heaven on earth:
Oreo Bonbons (formerly "Oreo Balls;" name changed for prettiness' sake)
Not to say that my sister wasn't the highlight of my trip (really you were the highlight, Silla, but you have to admit, this delectable treat was what MADE the party).
I made this batch to bring to 4th of July festivities. To achieve the bright coloring (that I can never get with food coloring!), I used red and blue melting chips from Hobby Lobby (any store with a decent baking selection should have these).
1 package of Oreos
8 oz. softened cream cheese
Almond bark or melting chips
Using a food processor, crush the Oreos until they are a crumby/powdery consistency. Mix in the cream cheese. Form balls from the mixture, and set in the refrigerator to chill. Melt the almond bark and coat each ball, allowing them to firm on wax paper. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Eat. Hoard. Eat more.
