This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

1 package Oreos
1 stick <!–////–>Philadelphia<!–////–> cream cheese
1 package chocolate almond bark
1 package white almond bark (optional)

Place Oreos( I do 5 at a time) in the blender; crumb off and on several times until finely crushed.  Do this until all the Oreos are crumbs.

Place Oreos in large bowl with softened Phil. cream cheese in it.  With a mixer; mix the Oreos and cream cheese together until thoroughly mixed.

Place wax paper on cookie sheet.  Take walnut sized pieces of the Oreo-cream cheese mix in hands and roll it into ball.  Place on the wax paper/cookie sheet.  When done (you should have between 50-60 – depending on the size), stick a toothpick (plastic ones work easier and are reuseable) in each piece.

Freeze for a couple of hours.

Melt chocolate almond bark in microwave for 1 minute; stir; then MW for 1 more minute.  Take each Oreo/c.cheese ball by the toothpick and roll in the melted chocolate.  Then place back on the wax paper.  When all are done, place back in freezer for a couple of hours.

Actually, they are ready to eat now.  Just take out of freezer and enjoy.

OR

Melt 1/2 of the white almond bark in the microwave for 1 minute; stir; melt for 1 more minute in MW.  Stir.

Remove the toothpicks.  Take the balls (one at a time) and roll the top in the white almond bark.  Then if you want to add a chocolate chip or and M&M or something decorative, do so at this time.

Place back in freezer for couple of hours.  When well frozen, put in plastic container.  Will last for a couple of months.
