Oreo Truffles

Yields about 3 dozen truffles

Ingredients

1 regular package of Oreos (or Golden Oreos for vanilla truffles)

1 8 oz. package of regular cream cheese

16 oz. of dark chocolate or white chocolate morsels

Sprinkles for decoration

Directions

Crush Oreos (or use a food processor) until powder.  Then combine in a bowl with room temperature cream cheese.  Mix together until smooth (if you used a food processor you can just add cream cheese to Oreo crumbs).  Then form small ping pong sized balls and let sit in the refrigerator or freezer until firm.  Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.  Drop truffles into chocolate and let sit on a sheet of wax paper.  Sprinkle with festive sprinkles.  Once the chocolate has set you can put them in mini muffin tins to cover up the bottoms.  Be sure to keep refrigerated when you are not eating them!
