Mint Oreo Truffles

I came up with this around Christmas time, trying to finish up some miscellaneous ingredients we had in the fridge. Mint Oreo Truffles! Heaven, right? I needed to bring something to a Christmas party, and really wasn't expecting much, but everyone loved them! I got really excited and retraced my steps to recreate them again, and tweak it a little to make it even better. It really is ridiculous how simple it is to mix these up, and crazy how addictive they are! Hope y'all like them!! :)
Oreo Truffles:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup plus 1-2 tbsp butter
pinch of salt 
1/4 - 1/2 tsp peppermint extract (or however minty taste you want!)
3 tbsp. milk
10 Oreo cookies
18 oz. semisweet chocolate
1/2 oz. white chocolate (optional)
Cream the butter and sugar. Add vanilla, salt, peppermint, and milk. Clean filling from Oreos and add as well. Mix well. Break up Oreo cookies (or brownie chunks!! Hmmm, ill have to try that...) into small pieces and fold into filling just until its mixed well. Then use a cookie scoop to make bite size balls and line on a cookie sheet; chill. Melt semisweet chocolate. Once peppermint balls are firm, dip into chocolate. Chill until chocolate is hard. To decorate, melt white chocolate and scoop into plastic bag and cut small hole at corner. Slowly drizzle onto chilled truffles.
