Countdown to Christmas #4: Oreo Truffles

Picture acquired from gimmesomeoven.com



This past week was a busy one, so I didn't have time to do a recipe.  However, I've made this recipe many, many times and it's always a winner.  In fact, Oreo Truffles are a favorite in my family.  You can't go wrong with these, thus making them a great Christmas gift!
Here's the recipe:

1 pkg. Oreo Cookies
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
White chocolate melting chips
Chocolate melting chips (if desired for drizzle)

First of all you need to crush up your oreo cookies.  You can do that by hand or in a blender.  Keep in mind, the finer the crumbs, the better!  Mix your cream cheese in with the crumbs until its moist enough to stick together.  Roll into 1" balls and place in freezer for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt your chocolate according to package directions.  Remember, I don't like almond bark.  It hardens too much and hardens too thick.  I just like to use a good quality chocolate chip.

Once your oreos have hardend in the freezer, you can dip them in your white chocolate.  You can either drizzle the tops with chocolate, or you can save some of your oreo crumbs and sprinkle those on top of your oreo balls.  Either way, these seriously are heavenly!

Makes about 4 doz.
Time: about 60-90 minutes
