Easy Oreo Truffles

My sister introduced this recipe to me. We needed a dessert for a Witches party that we went to while she was here visiting, so she suggested it. These were a huge hit! (I am sitting here eating some as I type.)

Easy Oreo Truffles

1 pkg. (1 lb 2 oz) Oreo cookies, finely crushed, divided
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 oz each) Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted

Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 42 (1 inch) balls.

Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover melted chocolate can be stored in tightly covered container at room temperature and saved for another use.) Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

****I used my food processor to crush the oreos. It worked great. I made the center as directed, then instead of dipping in semi-sweet chocolate I used white almond bark. I wanted to use white chocolate (I was coloring them grey), but I couldn't get the white chocolate to melt enough for dipping. I didn't need the crumbled cookies for the top, so I just figured out how much there was and added the right proportion of cream cheese to make more filling. They turned out yummy. I think they would have been better with chocolate covering instead of almond bark. Maybe next time. Like I said, I colored them grey and we called them "ghost droppings".

Oreos. Cream Cheese. Chocolate. You're speaking my language!
