Oreo Truffles

Sometimes adults need to indulge and this will satisfy your sweet tooth. Its pretty easy to make, but dipping the chocolate takes some patience.

1 package of Oreos
1 12 oz. package of full fat Philadelphia cream cheese (do not used whipped or light)
2 packages of chocolate chips ( white, dark, mile or semi-sweet). I used white chocolate, YUM.
Optional decorations: sprinkles, chopped peanuts, cookie crumbs

Place package of oreos in a food processor and mix to a crumble. Transfer to a mixing bowl and fold in cream cheese to make one big brown ball of dough. It should be folded with a solid color with little to no cream cheese showing.

Break off small pieces and roll into balls, should make 3+ dozen pending on size of balls, think 2 bite size.

Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 30 minutes or until hardened.

Melt chips in double boiler. If you don't have one, fill a saucepan with a few inches of water and place a ceramic bowl on top. Pour chips in bowl and steam from saucepan will melt chocolate.

Dip truffles in chocolate and then any desired decorations
(i skipped the decoration part and just dipped in white chocolate).

Note: chocolate hardens quickly so you need to dip a few balls at a time and melt a few handfuls of chocolate at a time. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks or your hands, this is the tricky part.

Return to freezer for 15 minutes. I let them thaw for an hour before serving.
