Oreo Truffles

 **note: mine aren't too pretty, no time to fix. however, i've been reading up on how to make them look pretty. use a teaspoon for rolling in the chocolate or toothpicks/skewers to dip them:)

OREO TRUFFLES

What You Need

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg.  (16.6 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Make It


MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.(I used Christmas sprinkles instead of cookie crumbs)
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator. 
**This recipe is from here on Kraft.com. Also, do not use the whole package, LC tried to go ahead and start these for me and he mixed the whole package of Oreos with the cream cheese. You really do need only three cups. The ones he started were crumbly because there wasn't enough cheese to hold it together. I remade them, and the consistency was just like it should be. I keep seeing to use a whole package in the blogosphere, but that didn't work for us.
