This recipe has been around for a few years but this is the first time I have tried it. It is an easy recipe, but I am not fond of the dipping part. But that's just me. They really aren't hard to make. Also, I dipped them in a mixture of milk and semisweet chocolates, and I think they are better dipped in white chocolate. If you opt for white chocolate, use Ghirardelli instead of Nestles. The Nestles brand does not melt well. I have learned that the hard way more than once. Nestles white chocolate gets no more chances.
1 pkg Oreos
1 - 8 ounce pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
12 ounces white chocolate (or whatever you prefer to dip them in)
Crush Oreos in a food processor until they are the consistency of fine crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine the cookie crumbs with cream cheese and vanilla. Roll into balls and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Meanwhile, heat chocolate in the top of a double boiler until melted. Dip each ball into the chocolate and place on wax paper.
(I used a long toothpick to dip them with, then placed them on the wax paper. Then I added a tiny bit of chocolate to the top and swirled it).
Chill in refrigerator until hardened.
