Simple Truffles

These are so simple. They look elegant but truly take no talent. I love to make them and give them as a gift for VT and neighbors. You can't tell the filling is oreo cookies. It tastes like some lucscious truffle filling.

1 pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (16.6 oz) Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 3 Cups)
Approx. 2 to 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.
Shape into (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (To melt chocolate put in microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes or until the chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in fridge.
