The Original Recipe:
This is from Kraftfoods.com. I have been making these every year around Christmas time. They are so good! I have read that you can use white chocolate, peppermint oreos, etc.. You can make them unique to the company you keep. Of course my favorite is original oreos with chocolate coating.. I LOVE chocolate!
