Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles are easy, impressive, and oh so tasty. There are a million different sources for this recipe, so I'll just post the one I know best. I'm sure there are different ways to do these, but I've had great success with my way. My mouth waters just thinking of them. Yum! They are perfect for a party or special occasion.

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg. OREO Cookies, finely crushed, (I like to use the holiday red cream oreo)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate or white chocolate, melted (I find that almond bark works just as well)
Mix 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.) To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Then use two forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove the truffles with forks and allow excess chocolate to drip back into bowl before placing truffles on prepared baking sheet

Top with cookie crumbs, sprinkles, or drizzled white chocolate.

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