1 16 ounce Package Oreo Cookies
I used "Newman's Own", he doesn't use hydrogenated oil in his
8 ounces cream cheese
softened to room temperature
16 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips
or you can use milk chocolate, white, or mint flavored for a contrasting mixture
Place cream cheese in a bowl. Crush Oreos in food processor. Add to cream cheese and mix thoroughly. Roll into walnut sized balls and place on a waxed paper covered cookie sheet. Place in refrigerator. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler ( I saw Paula Dean using a glass Pyrex bowl over a pan of heating water on the stove top..... I liked that). When balls are cooled and chocolate is melted, dip chocolate ballls into chocolate extended from a tooth pick, skewer or fork. Place on wax paper to dry. If desired sprinkle with additional cookie crumbs, or purchased sprinkles or drizzle with contrasting colored chocolate. Place each in a cupcake paper to give it a nice touch.
Try to keep them out of sight until ready to serve... they may not last.
