Oreo Peanut Butter Truffles

Oh. Baby. D-I-V-I-N-E. From a friend of a friend. What do ya know-on this recipe blog here. Here's the recipe, in her words since she's made them so many times.

Oreo Peanut Butter Truffles
36 Oreo Cookies (1 package)-this says 1 package but my package had 45 cookies. And I used reduced fat cookies and they were still divine.
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Take out 16 cookies and finely crush them, set aside. Chop the remaining oreo's. Combine the chopped Oreo's with the peanut butter. Roll the pb and oreo mixture into 1-inch balls. This can be kind of tricky on account of peanut butter being one of the stickiest substances on earth. I find that I have rinse my hands about every 3-4 balls rolled. And actually, it is quite helpful to keep your hands a little wet. Ok, after the balls are rolled, the need to be frozen until solid. Melt chocolate. Dip the frozen balls into the melted chocolate to coat. Then, roll them in the finely crushed oreo's to coat. Put on wax paper. Refrigerate 30 minutes before eating. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
