Valentine Truffles (Oreo Cookie Balls)

*Warning, making these could cause you to have your cheat day early and the possibility of a tummy ache due to eating too many!

Valentines Day is right around the corner, didn't we just celebrate Christmas yesterday? With Valentines coming up the sales of chocolate candies will be probably at its highest. Instead of buying chocolate candies this year make some of your own. This Recipe is for Valentine Truffles which are Oreo Cookie Balls. I make my Oreo Cookie Balls a little different then others, but you make them how you would like. The warning at the very beginning of this blog is a REAL warning. I always know if these get made, I am going to eat them, this time I was able to control it and didn't have any until this morning ( Yes, I had two for breakfast with my orange juice, Don't Judge)     (<< Just typing that gave me the sudden urge to workout, lol) You can add sprinkles to these as well to make them more decorative if you would like. My family likes them with just a side dipped in chocolate, but if I make them smaller I do cover them fully.

This is also a very simple recipe with 3 ingredients and 3 steps. This recipe is so simple that the older kids can do it themselves and the little ones may need only a little assistance.

- 1 package of Oreos
- 1 package of 8oz Cream Cheese
- Baking Chocolate

1} Crush the entire package of Oreos. You can just crush them all up yourself and this will leave little bits of cookies actually in there. This is how I prefer to do them. You can also put them in a food processor or blender and get the Oreos well grounded to a fine powder.

2} Add Cream Cheese, softened. Mix well. If you have decided to crush up the Oreos with little bits of cookies in there, continue to mix until well blended. ( It's easier if you mix with your hands) Once it is well mixed, roll into desired size balls.

3} Melt Baking Chocolate. (Remember if you are melting in the microwave, the chocolate can burn easily, melt for 30 sec, stir, repeat till fully melted.) Once chocolate is melted dip the balls in to either fully cover or to just dip the top in. -Once you have dipped all the cookie balls, place in fridge to allow chocolate to harden and they are ready to enjoy!

**If you would like to add Sprinkles or any other topping, like crushed pretzels, add once the balls have been dipped, before allowing the chocolate to harden,
