Crush cookies. Mix with softened cream cheese. Roll into balls; chill. Dip in melted almond bark to coat.
Crush cookies in food processor (Ziploc bag and rolling pin wasn't as easy) and add in cream cheese cubes to mix. Recipe called for 12 oz. cream cheese but I use 8 oz. I also chill this mixture before rolling into balls.
Guest Foodie COMMENT: I don't know what I did wrong...but coating these balls was a mess for me. I chilled the dough both after mixing the oreos and cream cheese, and then again after I made it into balls. I used the mint oreos (Great!), and used the Eagles' Brand coating (vanilla) baking bars. I heated the coating in the microwave before trying to dipping the balls. What is the key to dipping the balls. I used tongs, spoons, forks...and nothing really did a good job. Thanks!
CDKitchen Note: The dipping process takes a little practice. When I normally do it I keep the dipping chocolate warm in a double boiler and use dipping forks (bought mine at Hobby Lobby) to drop the ball in then carefully lift it out.

Guest Foodie REVIEW: I tried this when my son and family came to visit and wound up sending them home with them. They loved them and so do I and I am not a chcolate lover. I have made them three times since and given the recipe about 10 times. I took them to a library meeting and passed them out and the kids loved them and so did the adults. Very good. Deanie

Guest Foodie REVIEW: I made these for book club and everybody loved them and wanted the recipe. I couldn't find almond bark, so I used white chocolate. Apparently I made mine pretty big because it only made about 45, but they were still delicious!

Boostersue REVIEW: I just came home from a Christmas Party where these were served. Everyone was asking for the recipe! It is 1a.m. and I could not wait to come home and look up the recipe so I can make them for New Year's Eve!

Guest Foodie REVIEW: These are so easy and everyone loves them. I have coated them with melted chocolate chips and drizzled white chocolate over the top. Great recipe.

Guest Foodie REVIEW: I modified this recipe for Halloween. I used the same recipe (and added some ground red pepper for a little kick). After forming the balls, I squished them down a little bit to flatten them a little before chilling them. After melting the almond bark to coat them, I added orange paste food coloring and dipped the slightly flattened balls to coat. Once the coating hardens, I added a little "stem" of green canned/spray frosting to the top. Viola! "Pumpkins!"

Helen REVIEW: Recieved these as a gift! Fabulous! I had to have the recipe, everypone tends to use only 8 oz creme cheese, these would be great for kids/family to make, and decorate with red/green food coloring (in white almond bark) for Christmas!

RanClan06 COMMENT: These are DELICIOUS, fun and easy project. I only use 8 oz of Cream Cheese. Everyone raves about them and they run out and buy the ingredients and make them themselves.
