Oreo truffles

I've had these and seen these at many events. They are easy to make but time consuming but it isn't bad if you are waiting on other goodies to bake or chill as well.

Minty fresh Oreos in the food processor
8 oz package cream cheese
Pre Hand Rolled scoops of cream cheese/Oreo mixture
After they are dipped in chocolate and have been chilled
Mint Oreo Truffles
Makes 65 small truffles

8oz package of cream cheese (room temp)
1 package of Oreos (mint)
8 oz dark chocolate

Send the Oreos for a whirl in the food processor. Or in a bag with a can/rolling pin. Mash them up til they are crumbs. No chunks.

Add the cream cheese and combine until a smooth texture.
Put the bowl in the fridge and let it chill for about an hour. The crumbs are easier to work with when cold.

Melt chocolate (1/2 at first) over a double boiler (a glass bowl with the chocolate is placed on top of a pot of water that is being heated on a low setting). This melts the chocolate evenly and keeps it melty while working with it. I am moving and didn't have any bowls so I use a glass Pyrex 2 cup measuring cup and put that in a small pot filled with water over the lowest stove temperature setting.

I used my smallest cookie scoop and served out the crumb mixture. Roll it between your hands and then dip in the chocolate. I used a fondue dipping fork that came with my Cakepop maker. Dip individually and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat mat.

Chill in the fridge and then serve!
