Gone Like a Chocolate Freight Train

I made the most delectable desserts yesterday, and once I set them out at our Sunday evening service, they were gone like a freight train! Here is the recipe for a winner every time! And so easy!

Ingredients:
1 eight ounce package of cream cheese
1 package of double chocolate Oreos
1 one pound bag of some sort of cooking chocolate (melting chocolate, baking chocolate, etc)

Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Serving: about...... 40-50 little guys

Directions:

1. Smash the Oreos to a pulp.
 Suggested methods: zip lock bag and hammer, rolling pin, or potato masher.


2. Mix in all of cream cheese. This works best if you have some sort of intense appliance like a KitchenAid, or if you don't have that- then use a mixer, or just be aggressive. The resulting consistency should be a little bumpy, not totally creamy.

3. Roll cream cheese/Oreo mixture into one inch balls -perfect and bite size. Place on tray with wax paper or aluminum foil on the bottom. Or have a friend help! Melissa was right on the game with it.

4. Melt your chocolate. Double boil or microwave, whatever technique that does not involved burnt chocolate and fire.

5. Roll the cookie balls in the chocolate for a light coating, place back on tray.

6. Optional: Garnish with any of the following: coffee grounds, white chocolate shavings, course sea salt, chopped peppermint candies, or pretzels. Here is Cat doing a batch with coffee grounds!

7. Freeze or refrigerate for approximately one hour, or until solid. Serve immediately or keep in sealed container in fridge!


Like I said, its a great recipe and it will definitely be made again!
Have you ever tried these or any sort of variations?
