36 Oreo cookies
1, 8oz block cream cheese
1 pkg. Wilton candy melts, any flavor (I used white and light chocolate)
Process Oreo cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment combine the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs. Beat until a smooth paste forms. With a very small cookie scoop, scoop out portions of oreo mixture and roll into a ball. Place oreo balls onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Freeze for 2 hours.
Prepare candy melts by melting over low heat in a saucepan, stirring constantly, or by microwaving in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds. You can add a tablespoon of shortening if the mixture is too thick. Drop Oreo centers in the melted candy coating, turning to coat evenly, and lift out with a fork and place on wax paper. Sprinkle quickly with sprinkles before the candy coating sets (this works best if you have someone help you do the sprinkles while you dip the truffles). Store in an airtight container in refrigerator till ready to serve.
Rolo Turtles, Oreo Truffles, Ginger Snaps, and Cherry Rice Krispie Cookies with some candy cane kisses added to the middle.
