Notes
Notes and variations-
I mix the Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese using my stand mixer.  This method combines the cream cheese with the crumbs quickly.  You can also do this by hand with a large spoon or using your hands as well.  


Place Hershey kisses or caramel pieces in the center of truffles and make round balls.





Roll balls in white chocolate.


Let chocolate cool enough that it is still easy to roll truffles in but you don't want to roll the truffles in warm chocolate hot out of the microwave or off the stove.
