Minty Oreo Truffles

I can't think of a sweeter spring time treat that these perfectly creamy Oreo Truffles! Easy to make with super simple ingredients too! 

1 pkg Mint Oreos
1 8oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1 12oz. pkg white chocolate chips (or vanilla)
1-2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1 tsp peppermint extract
green food coloring; optional

In a food processor puree 5 of the oreo cookies & set aside. Process remaining cookies to a fine crumb consistency, add softened cream cheese & mix together with crumbs. (I used my hand mixer for this to make it extra smooth) Roll into about 1 inch balls & set on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Once all the filling is rolled into balls, place in freezer about 10 minutes while you melt your dipping chocolate. You can melt in microwave for 30 second increments or over a double broiler over stove until completely smooth. Thin out a bit with oil if it's too thick. (the peppermint extract will make your smooth chocolate solidify, this is where the oil helps) Add green coloring if desired. Remove truffles from the freezer & dip each in melted chocolate and sprinkle each with reserved oreo crumbs. Store truffles in fridge. I got 28 truffles...you may get more or less depending on the size you make them. Oh my smooth Minty-licious!!
