Truffles Made With Love

1 pkg. (18 oz) Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 oz each) Baker’s semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

Crush 5-8 cookies into fine crumbs in a food processor; set aside for later use.

Crush remaining cookies to fine crumbs.  Place in medium bowl.  Add softened cream cheese; mix until well blended.  Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1″ in diameter.

Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet.  

Sprinkle truffles with reserved cookie crumbs.  

Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.  Store leftover truffles, covered in refrigerator.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen or 42 truffles.

Tip:  For easy dipping, place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary.  Lift truffle from chocolate using two forks (this will allow excess chocolate to fun off) before placing on wax paper.
