Bakerella's Oreo Truffles

The other day my husband was surfing the web when I heard him exclaim, "Oreo truffles! Ooh, those look good!" It's rare that he gets excited about any food other than pizza so I had to go check it out to see what sort of gourmet delicacy he was drooling over. Turns out they are the exact same truffles I've made for him in the past, which he's conveniently forgotten about so I get no credit for my hard work. Since Christmas is all about giving (and traffic and the grocery store running out of those crucial Christmas dinner ingredients) I made a last-minute addition to my Christmas preparations and decided to make him some to refresh his memory. It's an old idea but a goodie: Oreos pulverized and mixed with cream cheese, rolled into bite-sized morsels, and dunked in white chocolate bark. Simple and aside from the tedious process of rolling each truffle not too involved. I've made these and the popular cake balls from Bakerella's site several times in the past and although my decorations are never anywhere near as intricate as hers they're still delicious. These are perfect for those of you who aren't bakers but want to give a homemade treat.

Oreo Truffles
Recipe from Bakerella

1 package Oreo cookies (use cookie including the cream center)
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
White chocolate bark

1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor and by hand if necessary. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
2. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Pop into the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate bark.
3. Melt chocolate bark as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. If desired, sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles.
4. Once dry, remove from wax paper and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Unless you eat them all before it gets to that stage.

I made these for a friend last night! We call them the White Devils becuase they are like crack.
