Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles, you had me at hello. I know food doesn't equal love....but this may be as close as it gets.

A friend of mine made these and brought them to a party the other night and I had never tasted anything so amazing. Then I found out they were very simple to make. Once Rob heard about these candies he couldn't take waiting for Thanksgiving or Christmas cookie-making. So being the ever faithful and doting wife that I am I went to the store and got the ingredients. Just for him of course.

Oreo Truffles
1 package Oreo cookies

1 block cream cheese, softened

1 pkg almond bark (found only at Wal-Mart around here)

Crumble up the Oreos with a food chopper or your hands very finely and put them into a large mixing bowl. Drop in the cream cheese and mix with your hands until it is a sticky dough ball. Roll the Oreo mixture into small balls. Melt the almond bark in the microwave as directed. Do not over heat the chocolate or it will lump up. Roll the truffles in chocolate and let cool on wax paper or parchment paper. Let cool and harden.

Either white chocolate or dark chocolate is super yummy with these truffles.

*Note: if you can't find the almond bark you can use 2 packages of chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave. DONT over cook the chocolate or it will lump up. Also, add a little bit of vegetable oil to thin out the chocolate a bit. Then refrigerate to help the chocolate harden.
