Oreo Truffles

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! I can't believe it has come and gone...I know I said I was not going to be posting any more sweet treats for a while, but I have one more :)  Christmas Eve Eve I made these.  More balls. 
Or you can call them Oreo Truffles.

I wanted something super quick to make for my neighbors since they brought over a gift and I had nothing, and I had seen these all over the place (meaning all over foodie blogs).  They are so easy, and soooo good.  If you like Oreos.  And honestly, who doesn't like a freakin' Oreo.  (The Devil's creation to make all of us commit one of the 7 Deadly Sins - gluttony!)

All you have to do is take a bag of regular Oreos, dump them in a food processor, grind them up until they are fine crumbs, then add a block of softened cream cheese (I used the 1/3 less fat b/c that's what I had).  This will make a nice dough...roll it into balls, stick them in the fridge for a few minutes while you are melting your choice of chocolate.  I used white chocolate, white Almond Bark, and mint chocolate chips.  I also rolled some in powdered sugar.  The best is the white chocolate - they taste like a....well, a white chocolate covered Oreo, and the mint chocolate tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie!!!  Roll the Oreo dough-balls in chocolate, place on wax paper, and you can stick them back in the fridge to harden.  You can also decorate with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens to make them pretty :)

So, if you are having a New Year's Eve party and want a quick, yummy dessert to make, go make these!!!  Or, if you are going to binge this week prior to going on a diet January 1st...then go ahead and add these to your splurge.  Not that I am going to do that.  *wink wink*
