(1) Take all of the Oreos out of the package and crush them into fine crumbs. Include the cookie and the cream filling.

Place the cookies into a gallon sized Ziplock bag, using a rolling pin to crush them.  You may also use a food processor on low speed.

(2) Pour crumbs into a large mixing bowl.

Step 3: Mix

(1) Take out 1/4 cup of the crumbs and set aside for later. 

(2) Place the softened cream cheese into the mixing bowl with the Oreos and use a wooden spoon to mix it until creamy.

(3) With your hands, take bite-sized pieces of the mixture and roll into a small ball. Place each ball on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.

(4) When all the balls have been formed, place the cookie sheet into the freezer for about 45 minutes or until the balls have hardened.

Step 4: Melt

Generally this is on low power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring often.

These are amazing! I've made them with every type of oreo, and personally I find the mint oreos covered with white chocolate are the best ....delicious! :) They went over very well at an office Christmas party. You can also shape them into footballs for the super bowl!
I think i will make these for my girlfriend valentines day, they look fantastic.

what do you do with the oreo filling? do you take them out? or just leave it while you crush the oreos?

Just leave the cream in. It mixes in well when you crush the cookies, and keeps the Oreo flavor.
