Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles

These were really simple to make and I have lots of ideas on what else to do with them!  The cream cheese and cookies mixed together makes for a very soft, truffle-like consistency.

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 16.6 oz package Oreo cookies, crushed
Almond bark in the desired flavor (vanilla or chocolate, or both!)

Crush cookies (you can either do this with a food processor, or by placing in a ziplock back and by hand/rolling pin!)

Reserve about 1/2 a cup of the crushed cookies for garnishing.  Mix the softened cream cheese and rest of cookie crumbs until well blended.

Shape into 1 inch balls - your hands will get messy, but these were quite easy to mold.  I stuffed a little white chocolate in the middle as well (by melting white chocolate chips until soft and spooning some into the truffle before rolling into a ball).

Once you have molded all of the balls, melt the almond bark in a microwave safe bowl according to package directions.  Using a fork, dip each ball in melted chocolate and place on wax paper to dry.  Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs. Refrigerate for about an hour, or until firm.

Tips:   There are a lot of ways you could decorate or fill these - sprinkles or crushed nuts on top, peanut butter in the middle, using a different type of cookie for the filling.  It's a very versatile recipe so get creative!
