One word: AWESOME
And that is all I have to say about that.
Let's get to it. Shall we?
1 16 oz. package of regular Oreos (not Double Stuff)
1 8oz package of cream cheese
Dark chocolate melts (I used 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.
Side note: I have seen people make these and not dip them in chocolate as at Your Homebased Mom. They reserve some of the crushed oreo and roll the balls in the crumbs. If you try this method (definately not as time consuming) you probably wouldn't have to freeze the oreo balls before rolling them in the crumbs.
