Oreo Truffles

1 pack of Oreos
1 pack of cream cheese
White and Dark/Milk chocolate
Toppings of your choice (I used ground cashews, coconut flakes and sprinkles)

Put the oreos in a ziploc back and crush. You can also use a blender or food processor for this.

Crush them till you get little coarse to fine crumbs (…got kids around? I'm sure they'll be glad to pound the life out of these oreos)

Add the oreo crumbs to a bowl and then add the cream cheese.

Mix till there are no more white streaks. You can use a hand mixer if you have one, otherwise a spatula will do just fine.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a tray lined with parchment paper and then refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Melt some chocolate using these directions. (PS: If your chocolate is too thick, add a little shortening (crisco) to lighten it up). Dip the cold balls into the chocolate and set aside on another lined tray. Add your favorite toppings and then refrigerate till the chocolate sets.

You can give these out as gifts (like i did). I found this cute valentine themed mini cupcake liners in a dollar store and a pack of 5 mini foil pans.

Put the truffles in the cupcake liners and arrange them in the foil pan (I got about 40 truffles). You can decorate however you like. I just made bows with ribbons which was really simple and quick.
