I often make these treats for holiday parties and there are never enough. My family is always sorely disappointed if I don't bring these treats for Christmas.

Never, never enough of these. They always go quickly wherever I take them. I actually use the chocolate almond bark, and then THinly drizzle them with a little white chocolate almond bark. They look like you bought them at the candy shop!!!!!! AAA+++++
- 1 (20 ounce) package Oreo cookies
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or 1 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
- 12 -24 ounces white chocolate chips
- shortening (optional) or Crisco (optional)
- candy sprinkles
Directions See How It's Made
- Crush whole oreos into a fine, crumbly powder. A food processor works best, but can also be done in a zip bag with a rolling pin.
- Throughly mix cream cheese into oreo crumbs. Mixture will be very thick and sticky.
- Chill until cold in refrigerator.
- Roll dough into balls about the diameter of a quarter.
- Chill again in freezer.
- Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or small crock pot for dipping.
- Remove a few balls at a time from the freezer and dip one at a time into the melted chocolate. This can be done using a toothpick inserted in the center, or I like to use two kabob skewers and use them to lift the balls out of the chocolate. Place on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Dipping is easiest if balls are cold.
- Top with sprinkles appropriate for the holiday or occasion soon after dipping, and before chocolate hardens.
- These are best eaten cold or frozen, so store in refrigerator or freezer.
- Note: My experience has been that some brands of chocolate tend to get too stiff for dipping after awhile. To remedy this add a small amount (approx 1/2 tsp at a time) of shortening to the melted chocolate. Repeat as needed to keep chocolate smooth. Do not use margarine, butter, milk, or water as they could ruin the chocolate and make it curdle.
