450 grams (16 oz) Oreo cookies
225 grams (8 oz) softened cream cheese
Enough chocolate for dipping- you can use almond bark or the candy melts but I just used regular chocolate bars that I chopped up and melted.
Pulse the cookies in the food processor until they're fine crumbs. If you don't have a food processor, just smash the heck out of them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Transfer the crumbs to a big bowl and add the cream cheese. Mix until well blended. Roll the cookie mixture into 1" (2.5cm) balls. Place in the freezer for about a half an hour. This will make them easier to dip.
Melt the chocolate. Using a toothpick (or skewer) poked into the top of the balls, dip them into the chocolate until coated. Set on waxed paper to cool. Drizzle more chocolate over the top if desired and store in the fridge.
Now, I can't get mint oreos here, but I think they would be fantastic for this project. Alternatively, you could use mint extract. I think this "recipe" has a lot of possibilities limited only by your imagination and the kind of sandwich cookies you use!
