I used chocolate chips but the melt came out very thick. I couldn't get it to thin out enough to make an even coating of chocolate. I froze the balls almost completely through so that helped keep everything intact. I also ground up the Oreos in a FP and it made for a ginosh type texture efter the cream cheese was encorporated.

They are very good, nettie!! I didn't think about using the mint ones. I was going to use the peanut butter ones next. I love Reece's candy :o)

When I crush up cookies, I put them in a ziploc gallon sized freezer bag, and unzip only 1/2" at the top. Then I use a rolling pin to crush them, thus no crumbs on the counter.

As for the dipping, I use chocolate that is specifically made for dipping. It comes in solid form, and cools within minutes to a very hard coating.

I couldn't get dipping chocolate but i found that if the balls of cookie and cream cheese were really cold and i used cooking chocolate not eating chocolate they worked out fine.

Since i haven't done much of this type of cooking i am not real fast at it so if they weren't really cold they began to melt and go out of shape before they were covered in chocolate.

Zameera, your doing just fine with the english.
You crush the whole oreo, cookie and the cream together.
I use a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips.
You store the balls in the refrigerator so that they harden a little before you dip them in the chocolate.
