"These Are Freakin Great!" Truffles

I'm not a frequent play-goer, but in the holiday spirit I managed to plan trips to NYC two nights in the past week.  A Christmas Story came to broadway this winter so it was absolutely necessary that my family go see it, and let me tell you it was just as fantastic as the movie! Then Thursday was a gift from my best friend to go see Wicked, which I have been DYING to see.  It was perfectly casted, wildly entertaining and put a whole new perspective on the Wizard of Oz. Bravo! And of course we got these awesome souvenir cups and crazy socks, but a picture just wouldn't do those justice.
Needless to say, when Friday rolled around I was exhausted {and yayy the world didn't end!}. It was time to bake for our holiday party we had Saturday, and after all the cake pop-ing I did the past 2 weeks I wasn't sure I could handle another batch.  Then I remembered  I had made Oreo truffles a few times in the past which were delicious and just as adorable as cake balls, but 100x easier.  And easy is definitely what I was in the mood for after a long week.  It was verified that these are a perfect addition to any party when I got dad's "these are freakin great!" approval on Saturday!

Oreo Truffles
1 package Oreos
8oz cream cheese
Chocolate
sprinkles {optional}

Crush up the Oreos {including the cream} in a food processor or the primitive ziplock bag method like I used. 
 Once they are completely crushed, mix in the 8oz of cream cheese until completely combined.
 Roll the Oreo mixture into balls and place on a parchment paper lined tray. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until the balls hold shape.

Melt Candy Melts or Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.  Coat the oreo balls in chocolate and place back on the tray. Decorate as desired {I used simple sprinkles because once again I was doing easy}.

Decorating suggestions: sprinkles, crushed Oreos, or drizzled with colored chocolate :)
