Easy Decadence

How about a recipe for something decadent that looks wonderful and 
will have folks thinking you are a  genius in the kitchen! Okay, most of you probably ARE pretty darned good at all the cooking and baking that goes on at this time of year. Me? Well, let's just say I like it easy...and good...and easy. Did I mention easy?

Oreo Truffles
1 (16 ounce) package Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
Dip balls in chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs. Now you can decorate if you wish! We like to drizzle on some of that melted chocolate. 
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator. Okay, so you probably won't have any left overs but hey...
White chocolate chips can also be melted and used too! It's all so good! Decadent but good!

Now go and enjoy! Go on...shoo.

Uh huh.... sounds decadent to me! I need some sugar to keep going. But no time to make cookies or candy right now. One more tree to go! I went to the cookie walk at your church on Sat. They are all gone but 6 of them...
