1package (8 ounces)cream cheeseat room temperature
1bag (12 ounces)Orange Candy Melts
18-20green M&M candies
Optional: vegetable oilyou might want to add some to make the candy melts easier to work with
Pulse the full oreos (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
Using a hand held mixer, beat the Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
Roll the mixture into balls.
Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
Once the balls are chilled, melt the candy melts according to package directions. (This is technically another ingredient, but you may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I'll just add the oil slowly until it coats the oreo truffles well.)
Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
Break the pretzels into thirds.
Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press a piece of a pretzel into the top of the ball.
Press and hold an M&M at an angle next to the pretzel for about 20 seconds.
