Oreo Cookie Truffles

These are the easiest dessert ever invented! (o, and yummy, too!)

From: Melanie Gunnell

1 package (18 oz.) Oreo cookies, crushed into fairly small pieces
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 package Almond Bark (white candy coating found in baking aisle)
Chocolate chips or chocolate bark for drizzling

Mix ground Oreos and cream cheese until well-combined. Warning: you will have to use your hands and it will be messy. Don't be alarmed. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate until firm, 3-4 hours (or pop in the freezer for about an hour).

Melt white almond bark according to package directions. Using 2 forks (forks are KEY here because they let the extra coating slip through the tines instead of pooling like it does if you use spoons), dip Oreo balls into white coating and place onto waxed paper to harden. Once dry, melt chocolate bark (or if using chocolate chips, melt chocolate chips with a bit of shortening) and scoop melted chocolate into a ziploc baggie. Snip a very small corner off the bag and drizzle back and forth over the truffles. Let dry. Chill them and serve later or eat them right away and don't look back.

Makes about 30 truffles each recipe.
