Oreo Truffles: easy and delicious!



Oreo Truffles



1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened (I used reduced-fat)
1 pkg.  (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
chocolate or vanilla bark/melts for melting (I used milk chocolate chips I melted in the microwave at 40 percent power for a minute, stir, watch closely to not cook longer than just barely melted!)


Mix cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls with hands or cookie scoop. Freeze for about an hour for easier dipping.  Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs or sprinkles.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
These are great!  The cream cheese and oreos combine so well you wouldn't even realize that it is cream cheese.  Truffle-ey and yummy.  Add this to your Christmas candy making!

I wanna try one before I make 'em for myself. Do you ship to my zipcode? You know how I feel about cream cheese after all....

These were delicious! BD thought they were a perfect bday dessert.

Good way to use up some of that army surplus of chocolate chips, eh :)
