5. Dip Oreo balls in melted chocolate. 

Using a spoon or a toothpick, dip into the chocolate, and completely coat. Don't worry if they are messy - the more chocolate, the better!

Sprinkle any extra Oreo cookies on top, or use your creativity and sprinkle crushed candy or nuts on top. Peppermints were used on our truffles!
