Oreo Amazeballs

I believe the true name for these is Oreo Truffles but my name seems a bit more fitting. You'll see why.

What You'll Need:

1 package of Oreos 
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1 package of baking chocolate, semi-sweet 

What You'll Do:

Crush oreo cookies until fine. It is much easier if you have a food processor, but if you don't, a plastic bag and rolling pin work too. The biceps you'll gain from smashing will just be an added bonus. 

Set aside about a quarter cup of cookie crumbs for later. 

Add softened cream cheese to food processor and mix thoroughly. If you're doing it by hand, knead until mixed. 

Roll dough into one inch balls and place on wax paper. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes. 

During that time, melt baking chocolate on the stovetop. Coat balls in chocolate and set back on wax paper to cool. This step is messy and I have yet to master how to smooth the chocolate so it looks pretty. Oh well.  

Sprinkle reserved cookie crumbs on top of each ball before the chocolate has cooled completely.


They are very easy and make quite a few, depending on how big or small you roll them. I like mine cold but you can keep them at room temp too.  

I hope you enjoy.
