Having had half a carton of Oreos, oodles of leftover Valentine’s chocolate, and enough sprinkles to cover an entire wall of our house, I knew I had to make these as soon as possible.

Are they amazing? Yes.
Are they super cute? Kinda.
Are they healthy? Not even close.
Do I care? What do you think…

Line a baking sheet with foil.

Separate Oreos ensuring creme filling remains only on one side. I found the best way to do this was using the twist-and-lift method. Some were stubborn and required scraping with a knife. It happens. Place creme side up on the foil lined sheet. Throw on your snack pants and eat the naked Oreo halves.

Unwrap the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and place on ten of the creme side up Oreos. Top each with a remaining creme side Oreo, this time facing down to create a double-creme sandwich of sorts.

In a microwave safe bowl, zap the milk chocolate for 2 minutes, stirring at the 30 second mark, 1 minute mark, and every 10 seconds thereafter until the chocolate is nearly melted. Stir constantly until residual heat melts any tiny solids.

Holding a Reese’s stuffed Oreo between your fingers, use a spoon to drop and spread the melted chocolate over the sides. Place about a teaspoon’s worth of melted chocolate on the foil lined baking sheet where you plan to set the Reese’s stuffed Oreo. Place flat side of the Reese’s stuffed Oreo onto the dollop of chocolate and press down slightly to ensure the bottom cookie is evenly coated in chocolate. Now it’s a bonbon!

Place about a teaspoon’s worth of melted chocolate atop the cookie and spread evenly with the spoon. Top with sprinkles and repeat with remaining Reese’s stuffed Oreos until they’re all bonbons.

Freeze for at least 30 minutes to solidify chocolate before serving.
