Oreo Truffles

Mr. CHiPy has a thang for Oreo cookies. He likes 'em plain. With a glass a milk.

Me? These are more my style...

Oreo Truffles
1 pkg regular Oreo cookies (not double-stuffed)
1-8oz pkg cream cheese
Milk chocolate melts (I use Wilton)
White chocolate melts (optional)

Step 1: Crush Oreos by using the blade attachment in your food processor.

Step 2: Whip cream cheese using beaters until it is nice and creamy.
Step 3: Add crushed Oreos to cream cheese.
Step 4: Mix with beaters until thoroughly blended together.
Step 5: Form mixture in to 1"balls (or smaller) and place on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15-20 minutes or even longer to let harden.
Step 6: Melt your chocolate and stir until smooth. Take Oreo balls from freezer. Use a toothpick to pick up a ball and dip in chocolate. Use a spoon to help coat the ball. Place on wax paper and use spoon to cover toothpick hole with chocolate. Let chocolate harden.
Step 7: (Optional) Place white chocolate melts in a plastic snack size ziplock bag. Melt chocolate for 20 seconds and squeeze bag. Microwave another 20 seconds and squeeze until chocolate is melted. Cut a tiny hole in the bottom corner of the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the whole batch of truffles. Let harden and store in refrigerator.
