Christmas Oreo Balls
Christmas Oreo Bon Bons
Long time, no talk. I keep thinking I couldn’t possibly get any busier, yet it keeps happening.
This weekend we celebrated my granny’s 80th birthday (Happy Birthday, Granny!) and I quickly made these Christmas Oreo Bon Bons to take over to the celebration.
Why you’ll love these Christmas Oreo Bon Bons
Easy to make – The steps are easy, but so are the ingredients. There’s nothing complicated about this recipe, no tempering chocolate and no baking. The ingredients are readily available in your grocery store, and flexible if need be.
Fun and festive – The holiday sprinkles really add to the Christmas spirit. Have a few while you’re wrapping presents!
Freezer-friendly – Great for making ahead of time and freezing for later for the holiday season! If you’re giving them as gifts for friends and family, they’ll stay fresh for a while.
Christmas Oreo Balls Ingredients
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
- Oreos – There are SO many Oreo flavors now that you can take these bon bons several different directions. I used the original flavor but “Winter” edition which just meant the creme filling was red. No taste difference.
- Cream Cheese – Make sure you start with room temperature cream cheese to make mixing these easier.
- Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers – I only like to use Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers because I prefer the flavor, but you can use CandiQuik or similar.
- Chocolate Chips – You’ll melt chocolate chips to create the drizzle over the finished bon bons.
- Fleur de sel – Fleur de sel is a sea salt flake that has a light taste and adds a little crunch. The contrast to the sweet chocolate is perfect.
- Sprinkles – Optional, to some, but festive sprinkles fancy up these bon bons and add a little special something. I like to use nonpareils because they’re small the delicate, but any holiday themed sprinkle will do.
I was at Target last week and saw the “Winter” edition of Oreos and they were so pretty. They have fun designs and red creme filling. By the time you’re done smashing them up, you can’t see much of either, but it’s still nice to know they’re there.
I’ve see these Oreo balls popping up all over, and yes, they’re very similar to the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Bon Bons I made over the summer, but it’s nice to have options!
Equipment you’ll need
- Baking Sheet with Lip – Having a lip on your baking sheet is especially helpful when you’re working with a ball-shaped treat. You don’t want any rolling off!
- Food Processor – Having a food processor will make turning the Oreos into crumbs really easy. I have this mini version and like that it doesn’t take up much room.
- Cookie Scoop – Making uniform balls is easier when you start with a cookie scoop.
- Silicone Baking Mat – You’re going to be drizzling chocolate over the bon bons and cleaning up chocolate from the silicone mat is much easier than cleaning it off the baking sheet.
What is a bon bon?
Bon is the French word for good – so a bon bon = good good 🙂 Essentially, a bon bon is a confection, usually covered in a thin layer of chocolate. They are sweet, they are round, they have an outer chocolate shell, and they are good!
You can call them bon bons, balls, truffles…all basically the same thing!
