Thumbs up Oreo Truffles

Here's what you'll need:
1 package of Oreo Cookies
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, brought to room temperature
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 to 1/2 pounds of vanilla almond bark (depending upon whether you want to coat them once or twice)
1/4 pound of chocolate almond bark or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Here's what you need to do:
In a food processor or blender, process the oreo cookies until they are fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and vanilla and continue processing until you can no longer see any white.

Form into 1" balls and place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for an hour.

Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave accoding to the package directions.

Remove the oreo balls from the refrigerator one pan at a time and coat in the white chocolate and return to the wax paper. Return to the refrigerator. Depending upon how thick you like like your chocolate coating, you may want to dip the a second time after they have been refrigerated a second time for at least 30 minutes (that's what I did). Leave them in the refrigerator while you melt the dark chocolate.

Drizzle the dark chocolate onto the oreo truffles using a fork that you shake back and forth. These need to be kept in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Makes about 3 dozen.

love these and sooooo easy! we are making some tomorrow! last year we used the mint oreos and they turned out wonderful too! we are going to put them on swizzle sticks and wrap in colored cellophane with ribbons and thank you's for fundraiser orders! they are much easier to get out of the chocolate and we poke the opposite end in crumpled foil for the perfectly round truffle.
