Oreo Truffles

There are so many great candies to make this time of year but I always fall back to this one. I love these things. I'm sure this isn't the first time you've ever seen or made this recipe but maybe it will entice you to make more Christmas candy~

1 (16 ounce) package Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (or almond bark), melted

Crush cookies to fine crumbs in food processor (cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin); place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.

Place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off); place on wax paper lined baking sheet. Coat with topping of choice. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
Note: white almond bark works just as well.
