Chocolate Peppermint Bon Bons

Dipped Peppermint Bon Bon

These little delicious desserts are simple and fun to make!  I love adding just a few drops of peppermint essential oil to the dough to give it a refreshing and bright flavor!  Try making them for your next gathering!  People will go crazy over them!


1 package reduced fat Oreo cookies

1 8ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

3-4 drops peppermint essential oil

Good dipping chocolate such as Guitard  (I like to use a mix of dark and milk chocolates).

Parchment Paper



Prepare a jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper.  In a food processor fitted with the blade, blend all the Oreos’ until it turns into crumbs.  In a separate bowl add the Oreo mixture and cream cheese.  Blend with beaters until just combined.  Add the essential oil if using.  Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on the parchment lined pan.  Freeze for 6-12 hours until the balls are firm.


Chocolate Peppermint Bon Bons

Melt the chocolate over a double broiler and add 1 tablespoon organic canola oil to help the chocolate melt more evenly.
