These were SO easy to make. I made a half a batch of them to start... here's the recipe for half a batch, adapted from Kraft Foods' recipe: http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/easy-oreo-truffles-95085.aspx
1/2 package of Oreos (about 22-23)
4oz cream cheese, softened
4-6oz Milk Chocolate
1. Crush Oreos in a food processor or blender, or mash with rolling pin. Go for a fine grain, it will look like potting soil when you're done.
2. Mix Oreos and cream cheese together, form into 1inch balls
3. Refrigerated Oreo balls for about an hour
4. Melt the chocolate, roll the Oreo balls in the chocolate, set on wax paper or other non-stick surface. Top with crushed Oreos before the chocolate sets!
Store in air tight container in the refrigerator.
I think you could easily substitute other cookie types for the Oreos - I'm thinking the golden oreos could be one to try. Also, Keebler's Grasshopper cookies would probably be delicious! The texture of these truffles is somewhat similar to the red velvet cake balls I made earlier.
