Chocolate Bon Bon Pops Recipe!

Makes 20 pops

18 chocolate sandwich style cookies, with cream filling (Oreo's are good)
1 1/2 cups pecans, toasted (or walnuts or nuts of choice)
2 tablespoons orange juice (or orange liqueur)
1 tablespoon light corn syrup (clear color)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
20 lollipop sticks
1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips or 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening


1 In a large food processor bowl combine cookies and 3/4 cup of the nuts; pulse until cookies are crushed. Add orange juice, corn syrup, and cocoa powder; process until combined. Add remaining nuts; pulse until coarsely chopped.
2 Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape the cookie mixture into 1" balls. Place on a baking sheet, insert a lollipop stick, and freeze for about 30 minutes.
3 In a small saucepan combine the chocolate chips and shortening. Cook and stir over medium-low heat just until melted. Remove from heat. Dip pops in melted chocolate. Return to baking sheet.
4 Loosely cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate coating is set. If using liqueur, flavor will mellow after a day or two. Enjoy!
