Oreo Truffles

The food speeches last week went great! Everything was delicious. :D In particular though, someone made these delicious little Oreo truffles, and I knew I had to try to make them. The word ‘truffle’ is usually a warning to me that a recipe is going to be really difficult. However, this may have been the easiest dessert ever!
Oreo Truffles
1 pkg regular Oreo cookies
1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 pkg semi sweet chocolate chips

Crush up all the cookies (except for 2) either in a plastic bag with a rolling pin or in a blender. They don’t have to be too finely crushed, it’s alright to have some chunks. Mix this with the whole package of cream cheese, until it forms a nice soft ball. If the mix is too soft, refrigerate it for about 20 minutes.

Shape the mix into little balls (makes about 40-45) and place them on a sheet of waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet into the fridge to cool for about an hour.

In a double boiler (or like I used, a little ceramic bowl in a pot with some water) melt the chocolate over medium heat.

When it’s all melted, turn the heat back down; you don’t want it to burn. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into the melted chocolate, making sure it’s completely covered. Place them back on the waxed paper. (Warning! You may need a little bit more chocolate to cover all the Oreo balls)

Take the 2 extra Oreo cookies and crush them up really fine, then sprinkle the bits on each of the balls before the chocolate hardens completely. Place them back in the fridge until they harden completely. Store extra truffles in the fridge.
