Oreo Kisses

We made these incredibly yummy and cute chocolate truffles at a Relief Society "Super Saturday" activity back in October. Jen Scott taught the holiday goodies class, and these are perfect for Valentines Day!

1 package Oreo cookies
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
Dipping Chocolate

1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor for a fine consistency.
2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on wax paper covered cookies sheets.
4. Then, begin to form the shape of a kiss by flattening then bottom and forming a point at the top. (About 1.5" tall)

5. It helps to put the uncoated balls in the freezer for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart when you drop into the melted chocolate.
6. Melt chocolate as directed on package and then dip "kisses" one at a time into chocolate, tap off extra and slide them off onto wax paper covered cookie sheets to dry.
7. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!

1. Handwrite your messages (or type on computer). Cut out strips.
2. Cut up some squares sheets of aluminum foil. (about 5.5" square)
3. Place dry kiss in center and start wrapping the foil around the base. Insert message near top and secure it by pressing foil together at top.
