Valentine Oreo Truffles

Oh my! These oreo truffles are delicious, rich, and one of the easiest treats I've ever made!
This was our Valentine's "craft" at our MOPS meeting today and it was perfect! Simple & yummy! 
Aside from the taste, the best thing about these treats is the easy prep. Want to surprise your husband tonight? Have a party or get together to go to today? No problem--these can be made in NO time!

Ingredients:
Oreos, cream cheese, bakers chocolate/candy coating (& sprinkles if you want). that's it!

To make a full batch:
- Crush about 35 full oreo cookies--with cream and all (either in a food processor or the old baggie & rolling pin method)
- Mix the crumbs with an 8oz. brick of cream cheese
(we each made a small batch today--enough for four each. To do so we used about 1/4 C of crumbs mixed with a small section of the brick of cream cheese)
 
 - Continuing mixing until areas of white are mostly gone & all crumbs have been incorporated.
- roll into small balls (these are rich, so don't need to be big)
- roll into small balls (these are rich, so don't need to be big)
- dip into melted chocolate, knock the drips off, and place onto wax paper. Decorate with some fun holiday sprinkles if you'd like, then put them in the fridge to harden.
 - put them in a cute little Valentine's box or other fun packaging and you have an adorable & yummy gift!
Other fun ideas with these: 
- use different "flavors" of oreos
- use the colored chocolates/candy melts
- shape the oreo-cream cheese mixture into other shapes, like hearts! :)


Have you made these? Any special/fun thing you do with them?
