Oreo Truffles

Today was quite the busy day. Two of Brent's departments were hosting their Holiday Party and it was potluck. So I had decided I would make Oreo Truffles for the first party. I have made these every year since 2006 for his different holiday parties and they are a big hit with chocolate lovers.
Oreo Truffles
***you can use any flavor Oreo, just note that if it's double stuffed the truffle "batter" will be stickier and harder to work with***

1 package Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
8 oz cream cheese, softened
16 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

1. Crush 6 of the cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor and set aside.
2. Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor and place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese and mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into about 4 dozen balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
3. Dip balls in chocolate and place on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
4. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Makes 3.5-4.5 dozen truffles.

Just an exciting tidbit! I have been making these for years, and they are always a winner! The recipe i found has a "junior mint" in the middle, which makes for a nice minty surprise when you bite in!
