Place the Oreos in a food processor, don’t separate. Pulse until you have fine crumbs. Add cream cheese.
Using a 1 ½ tablespoon ice cream scoop (or whatever size you preferoll into balls and place on parchment paper. Cover and freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to decorate.
Place some of the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
Using a fork quickly dip the Oreo ball into the chocolate mixture and using a knife, slide it onto parchment paper. Continue to dip all the balls as the chocolate will cool quickly. Have your decorations ready to decorate as soon as the balls are coated. Use thin Oreos for bat wings.
Refrigerate or freeze.
Barbara's Notes + Tips
Use just a small amount of chocolate in a microwave bowl, enough to dip about five balls.
Use a fork to lower and remove the dipped balls from the chocolate and a sharp knife to slide it off the fork onto parchment paper.
Decorate before the chocolate hardens, you won't have much time.
Cover any holes with sprinkles, no one will ever know if they aren't perfect.
If you don't have food processor, place the Oreos in a resealable bag and crush with a rolling pin or wine bottle. Use your hands or a hand mixer to combine with the cream cheese.
Use chocolate wafers or chocolate chips. Candy melts will not work as well.
