These are incredibly easy and taste amazing. They’re quite rich and the recipe makes about 40-50 depending on the size of ball you roll. Many people call them “Oreo balls” but I think “Oreo Truffles” sounds better and fancier. I think I now like the mint more than the regular Oreos too. (I realize now I posted this like 3 things below! Anyway, here’s the recipe typed out for you too!)
1 bag of Oreo cookies (mint or regular)
1 block of room temperature cream cheese (or slightly warmed in the microwave)
1 bag of chocolate chips or chocolate bark (can be white, dark, milk or semi-sweet. I prefer a more bitter chocolate because the milk is over kill on the sweet for me.)
Crush Oreos into fine pieces using your hands or a food processor.
Take the block of cream cheese and mix with the Oreo dust.
Chill this mixture for about 10 minutes in the freezer.
Roll mixture into walnut size balls and place on wax paper covered baking sheet.
Heat chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute at 80% power, then stir. Continue to heat on 15 second intervals at 80% power stirring in between until entirely melted.
Using a fork, toothpick, chopsticks, tongs or a spoon, dip each ball in the melted chocolate and return to the baking sheet.
Chill the truffle balls again for the chocolate to harden. I keep them refrigerated until serving.
(Some overachievers then drizzle opposite colored chocolate over the completed Oreo Truffles as seen in the picture found here).
