Patriotic Oreo Balls

I saw these on Facebook and wanted to save/share them but I don't like using Facebook like Pinterest because it's hard to go back and find them. I prefer Pinterest for my recipe finds because I know where they are and they are easily accessible from my computer or my phone. I tried pinning these but since Pinterest only allows 500 characters, I was unable to so I decided to make a blog post and pin from here. I do not know who the recipe comes from. The post I found was by Nai'a's Knits By The Sea on Facebook. Here is what was posted by the page:

I am so excited to try making these to bring to the fireworks this 4th of July. Has anyone made these before?

Super easy Patriotic Oreo Balls
What you need:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed
Chocolate wafers in choice color for dipping, or white chocolate food colored
sprinkles and chocolate for drizzle
lollipop sticks

MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Insert lollipop stick into center of each ball. Dip 24 balls melted chocolate; sprinkle if desired. Place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining balls.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
