Oreo Truffles

I saw these on Bakerella and knew I had to make them! Oreos were my favorite childhood cookie and any combination of chocolate with something is usually amazing. I took a quick break from studying to make a batch of these and they were gone by the next day- hubby took half of them to work but that still means the 2 of us consumed an embarrassing amount...

I had originally planned to make these for the Super bowl in the shape of footballs like Bakerella did here. However, mine looked more like the "footblobs" she posted so I gave up and just rolled them into little balls.

1 package oreo cookies (divided, use cookie and cream center)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
white chocolate bark (I used dark chocolate)

Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later. Crush the remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help combine the two together. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate 20 minutes.

Melt chocolate 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. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration. Once dry, refrigerate. Enjoy!
