Put 9 cookies in food processor and chop to fine crumbs; put them aside.
Put remaining cookies in food processor and chop to fine crumbs; put them in a bowl. Add cream cheese and stir until mixed evenly. Roll the mix into 1" balls (approx. 40-42).
Cover baking sheet with waxed paper. Using dipping forks, fondue forks or whatever utensil works for you, dip balls in chocolate and place them on baking sheet. If you have a small hole in the ball from the utensil, use your finger to dab a tiny bit of chocolate on it. With chocolate still wet, sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs over top. Put them in the fridge for about an hour. Store them in fridge.
* To melt chocolate, make sure you use a double boiler - a pot with 3" of water in it simmering gently, with another smaller pot or heat safe bowl on top. Chocolate can burn easily - this way the steam from the bottom pot will melt the chocolate safely.
Change it up: Instead of having the leftover crumbs sprinkled on the balls, try using chocolate sprinkles!
