Oreo Truffles

For a new years party I went to - I made a great recipe by Christina Middleton. They've been all over cooking blog world the past year, but Chris made these back in the day at the Summit for a summer girls Bible study one night. They were really great and really easy - when you have a food processor and mixer! Ah, equipment in the kitchen! I also made hummus - which also made the food processor come in handy!
Oreo Truffles
1 pkg oreos - minus 7 cookies (or I've used the whole pkg of double stuff before too, depends on what taste you want), crushed fine.
1 block 1/3 less fat cream cheese - or full fat, take your pick
dipping chocolate

Soften cream cheese, crush oreos, mix together. Chill dough. Form into balls, freeze balls of oreo mixture for about 25 minutes. Roll in chocolate, lay on wax paper. Drizzle with opposite color chocolate.

I made these one time and had a really hard time dipping them in the chocolate because they kept falling apart. My recipe didn't tell me to freeze the oreo balls before dipping. I'll be sure to do that next time!
