3 Ingredient Truffles



Makes approximately 4 dozen truffles (or maybe a little less, depending on how much of the filling you choose to sample)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 pkg.  (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreos (You can also use a generic version to save a little cash; I've tried a few varieties, and they work just as well.)
2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted (You will most likely use closer to 1 1/2 packages.)

1. Set aside 5 Oreos and throw the rest in a food processor until they are finely crumbled
2. Thoroughly mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese.
3. Form crumb-and-cream-cheese mixture into balls, approximately 1-inch across each and place onto a cookie sheet that has previously been lined with wax paper.
4. For best results, pop the formed mixture into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill while you complete the next step.
5. Melt the chocolate in a saucepan or double boiler.
6. Remove pot from heat.
7. Coat previously formed balls with chocolate and return to the lined cookie sheet.
8. Throw the remaining 5 cookies into the food processor.
9. Sprinkle some of those crumbs on top of the (still wet) truffles.
10. Refrigerate for one hour.
