Oreo Truffles

Family potlucks mean a chance to try out great new recipes. I found this little beauty here, and was dying to try it.
Super simple and super delicious.

Oreo Truffles

1 package Oreos
1 1/2 pkg (12oz total) cream cheese softened. *I used 2 whole packages b/c well I love cream cheese!
12oz chocolate* I used a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips and a bag of milk chocolate chocolate chips and it was great!
1 oz white chocolate

1. Finely crush the oreos using a food processor
2. Mix oreos in a bowl with the cream cheese (I used a spoon to mix, not a blender). Mix until there are no white streaks visible.
3. Form into small balls
4. place on parchment lined baking sheet.
(hopefully no one pokes their fingers into the balls like they did to some of mine.)

5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight * I did it overnight just to make sure they set correctly.
6. Melt chocolate over double boiler, stirring constantly.
7. Dip each truffle into chocolate using a spoon, drop onto parchment baking sheet.
8. Repeat.
9. Melt white chocolate. Pour into ziploc bag and make a tiny hole in the corner. Drizzle over chocolate.
10. Refrigerate until ready to serve * I would suggest refrigerating for at least 2 hrs prior to eating.
11. ENJOY!

NOTE: You should be aware that the chocolate can stick to your teeth when you bite into the goodness and therefore cause you to look like a pirate that is missing some teeth. Also, the chocolate can be a little melty when your eating them and you may not notice this until your putting your child into pajamas and notice little black fingerprints over his back.
