Oreo Truffles – Halloween Spiders
This no-bake treat is a crowd favorite! Crush one pack of Oreos to a fine crumb and add one 8oz. package of softened cream cheese until a thick batter has formed.

Dip the cooled Oreo balls in the melted chocolate until completely coated, and set aside until firm. Bonus Spooky Treat: Add pretzels as legs, and chocolate chips as eyes to make the truffles look like spiders!
