An alternate (and easier to remember recipe) that I like better:
-1 package oreos, crushed finely
-8oz cream cheese, softened
Mix together thoroughly, roll into balls of desired size (I find they work best if they're about the size of a chocolate truffle).
Next, melt down some chocolate almond bark. Roll the balls in the melted chocolate to coat. Set on wax paper to dry.

Anytime I am not sure what to bring to a party or put in a care package, I make these and they are ALWAYS a hit!
