Easy Oreo Balls

Our neighborhood had a cookie exchange last weekend so I decided to try making Oreo balls.  These were so easy and delicious, I have a feeling they are going to become a staple in our house!!! 

{What You Need}

All you need in this recipe are THREE easy ingredients!!!

1 Package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (8 ounces)
1 Package of Oreo Cookies (16 ounces)
2 packages of Bakers Semi-Sweet Chocolate ( 8 squares) - melted

{How to Melt Chocolate}
Place unwrapped chocolate squares in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min.
or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.

{How to Make Oreo Filling}
In a food processor, dump in your cookies and cream cheese until smooth consistency.  Using a cookie dough scoop, form the filling into smooth round balls.  Roll in your hands for additional smoothness.  On a wax paper lined cookie sheet, place your Oreo filling in even rows.  **Refrigerate your Oreo balls (before dipping them into the melted chocolate) for about 30 minutes.  This will help set the Oreo mixture and make them it a lot easier for dipping.** I learned this the hard way, I started dipping the Oreo filling right away into the melted chocolate and my balls completely fell apart!

{How to Easily Dip Truffles}
To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.
