Mint Truffles


Can't beat these palate pleasing Mint Truffles when your cravings get the best of you! These satisfy both the "mint chocolate" lover as well as the "sweet tooth" demon thats in all of us!

Mint Truffles 

1 (9 oz) package THIN MINT Girl Scout cookies OR Mint Oreo Sandwich Cookies
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 (12 oz) package Guittard's Green Mint Chocolate Chips

Crush cookies until they are just crumbs (I used my food processor). Mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs in a large mixing bowl. Roll into small balls and place them on a baking sheet (sprayed with pan coating or lined with wax paper) and place them in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes. Melt the green chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the chips for 30 minutes, then stir....repeat process until chips are melted. Roll each "cold chocolate ball" in the melted chocolate and return to baking sheet. Stick truffles back in refrigerator until chocolate hardens. 

*Note this recipe makes more than you think it would....I wouldn't recommend doubling it unless you are making them for a LARGE crowd...otherwise you will be eating ALOT of them.

  1. I love these and can't wait to make them. I think it should say heat the chips for 30 seconds, not minutes. Thanks for all of your great recipes.
