Mint Oreo Truffles
From Salena Thomas
I got this from Bakerella

1 pkg. Cool Mint Double Stuffed Oreos
use 22 cookies with cream centers included
use 10 cookies with cream centers discarded
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
chocolate bark or candy coating*

Finely crush the cookies in a food processor or a ziploc bag with a rolling pin. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together completely. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Place covered in freezer or refrigerator for a few minutes to help retain shape when dipping in melted chocolate. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. Refrigerate.

(Learn from Salena's mistakes...don't warm the cream cheese in microwave to bring to room temp. It makes it too soft. And don't use the food processor to combine the cookies and cream cheese. It makes the wrong consistency.)
