Oreo Hedgehog

  You all know how much I like my oreo creatures and I think this little oreo hedgehog turned out so adorable!   I went outside my typical oreo covered in chocolate recipe and decided to make go one step farther and make him out of a “bon bon” which is crushed up oreos mixed with cream cheese and then dipped in melted chocolate.  I know..it’s not a huge difference but I’m telling you the slight change is delicious! 

Oreo Hedgehog

  • 1 package of Oreos
  • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 lb bag of chocolate candy wafers  for melting– I used two different shades a dark and a light. 
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Brown sprinkles
  • Chocolate and Candy Melt Melting Pot, optional
  • Silicon Baking mat, optional
Finely crush Oreos.  Mix with cream cheese until combined.  Roll into desired sized and shaped balls or “bodies”. Chill on pan lined with silicon baking mat or waxed paper for 30 minutes.  While chilling, melt chocolate either in a microwave at 30 second increments until melted or put in melting pot. Dip chilled bon bons into melted chocolate.  Put your chocolate covered bon bons back into the refrigerator until chocolate hardens.  
 Dip the “face” side of the Oreo in a lighter chocolate and placed in refrigerator until the chocolate is hard, approximately 5-7 minutes.  Dip the opposite side of the body in the darker chocolate.  Use a tooth pick and gently pull up the dark chocolate to give the hedgehogs back some texture.  Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles on top.  Place back in refrigerator until chocolate has set. 
Using a toothpick and the darker chocolate, “draw” two eyes and a smile.  Placing a small amount of melted chocolate on the back of a  mini chocolate chip, adhere to the face of the hedgehog.  Super simple!  These little guys would be so fun at a little boys birthday party or a woodland baby shower!
