Oreo Truffles!

A friend made these for my for my birthday, and I had forgotten about them until I ran across the recipe. I needed a quick treat for a get-together at school, so decided to whip up a batch. I had forgotten how yummy they are, and I'm not even a big Oreos fan! Recipe follows..

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg Oreos (Use regular, not the double stuffed ones---the dark chocolate are regular, the white chocolate are mint!)

1 8 oz pkg softened cream cheese

Baker's (sweetened) chocolate

Crush Oreos in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, or put in a food processor. Reserve 9 Oreos in a small plastic bag to use after dipping. (I didn't do this....but I did take out the 9 Oreos.) Mix crumbs with softened cream cheese. This will remind you of a mudd pie mixture. Roll into 24 balls and place in the refrigerator. Melt chocolate. I have had the best luck using a glass measuring cup for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Then using 2 forks, dip each ball into the chocolate. Decorate with reserved Oreo crumbles, or sprinkles. It's hard to keep the white chocolate free of crumbs, but they are yummy just the same!
