I just love making these (and my family loves eating them).  This is a no cook/bake recipe that uses crushed up oreo cookies. (or any type of sandwich cookie)

Oreo Cookie Candy/Truffle
1 lb oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
1 lb milk chocolate or chocolate bark
1/2 lb. white chocolate

Grind up the oreo cookies in a food processor (I tried this by hand and it took FOREVER!)
Mix/cream together room temperature cream cheese and ground up oreos.  (Make sure that the cream cheese is thoroughly blended into the cookies)
Roll into round balls and place on a wax lined cookie sheet.  Refridgerate for at least 45 min.

Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.
Melt the milk chocolate in a double boiler.
Dip balls and coat thoroughly.
With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, spoon or whatever suits your fancy, drizzle white chocolate over balls.
Let cool and store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

I have even popped these in the freezer and they did fine!

On a side note.  Try using Nutter Butter cookies and coat with the milk chocolate. 
Or try the Uh Oh oreos (the inside out ones) and see what happens.

All are different colors,
but they all have to learn to live in the same box.

I'm going to try this with some Christmas cookies my roommate's mom sent.  They're just chocolate cookies, no filling, but they're all crumbs due to the shipping and this would be a great way to get them used without being wasted.

This sounds like a good recipe, too bad I don't eat chocolate.  I will share it with my cousin though, she loves oreos!  Thanks for sharing this.

That sure does sound good! I like to use oreos as a base for mini cheesecakes. One oreo in the bottom of a cupcake liner, and the cheesecake poured over. Simply to die for!

So I had to try the recipe because by chance we had Oreos in the house this weekend. My mom loved them!

I like them a lot microwaved for just 5 seconds to make the middle gooey-er.
Thanks for sharing the recipe!

i just made these, and OH MY GOD these are terrific!  I did some dipped in milk chocolate and some dipped in white chocolate-- the white chocolate came out looking kinda funky but still tasting great, whoever invented these deserves like pulitzer prize or something lol. Smiley

Those sound great! I was wondering if the cream cheese make the oreos soggy? Years ago i made an oreo cake. The oreos on the frosting goes mushy and loses there crunch if its not eaten right away. Does that happen with these?
