Golden Oreo Truffles

I don't know how, but this is one of the best desserts invented. It is so simple but so delicious. 4 ingredients, no baking involved. Here's what you need
Golden oreos, cream cheese, butter, and bark chocolate coating. Put the oreos in the bowl of a food processor
Add cream cheese and melted butter
Pulse until the ingredients form a ball and are completely combined
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out truffles and set in an air-tight container. Let them set up in the fridge until firm enough to roll in bark chocolate
Once the oreo balls are chilled, melt the bark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl
Heat until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Roll the truffles in the bark chocolate, one at a time
 Once completely covered, scoop out of the bowl of chocolate with a fork and tap the fork against the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate
Place on wax paper to harden
Refrigerate the truffles once the bark chocolate hardens. Here's the inside.
Yum, gooey and creamy. If you're not a fan of vanilla, you can do any combination you want of oreos and bark chocolate. Mint oreos with both milk & white bark chocolate are my favorite

Golden Oreo Truffles
1 pkg. Golden Oreos
3 Tbs. butter, melted
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese
1 pkg. white bark chocolate

Crush oreos in the bowl of a food processor. Add the melted butter and cream cheese. Pulse until everything is combined and it starts to become 1 big oreo ball. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out truffles. Chill in an air tight container until firm. After chilling, melt bark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and roll each individual truffle in the chocolate until completely coated. Using the fork, gently scoop up the truffle. Tap the fork against the side of the bowl, this is to loose some of the excess chocolate on the truffles. Slide off the fork onto wax paper to harden up. Once the bark chocolate has dried, put the truffles back in the air tight container. Chill a couple of hours, or until cold (truffles are best when cold). Serve cold when ready.
