Oreo Truffles

Who doesn't love Oreos? I certainly do. Even better are Oreo Truffles. These are so easy!
So here's how I make them:

1 package of Oreos
1 package of cream cheese (actually I use Neufchatel)
Chocolate almond bark (don't use your fancy chocolate, that's disgusting)

Crush the whole package of Oreos (minus the packaging) until it's a fine powder. I use a food chopper for this. Then add the cream cheese and mix it good with a mixer. Create little balls with the mixture. Melt the almond bark in the microwave, just follow the directions, it's simple. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Dip the balls into the almond bark, using forks to help the excess run off (but don't stab them, they didn't do anything wrong). Then place on the wax paper. Refrigerate until the "chocolate" hardens, about ten minutes. Eat, of course. Store any extra in the refrigerator. Makes at least 40.

These are so easy. I love them. I told Peter not to eat so many of them, "It's like a heart attack in a little ball," but he saw me buy the Neufchatel and asked why that instead of cream cheese. When I told him it had 1/3 less fat, he decided these were healthy.

when you say "Don't use your fancy chocolate, Thats disgusting." Are you referring to us in specific? I take offense to that. JK! Oreos and dark chocolate probably would be pretty nasty though.

I did realize after I wrote it that you might think that. But seriously, almond bark is a cheap imitation, but the only way to go. Our young women try to make some with chocolate chips and they were awful.
I bought some chili chocolate the other day if that makes you feel better. My grandpa was confused when the chocolate started to burn

Those sound really really yummy. I'll have to make them some time when we have a lot of people over. Othewise I know who would eat them all and that's not good. I shall remember not to stab the innocent truffle balls.
