Next, as requested, I have the thin mint truffles recipe for you! A lot of you requested to have the recipe after I posted the creation on Instagram. I first learned of this amazing idea from Kristen. Although I am not a big fan of mint, I thought these looked perfect for Christmas dinner.
The original recipe found here.
- 1 9oz box Girl Scout Thin Mints (Or Keebler's Grasshopper cookies in my case)
- 4 oz cream cheese, slightly softened
- 8 oz green mint chips
- 8 oz white chocolate chips
- Crush cookies into fine crumbs in a food processor.
- Mix crushed cookies and softened cream cheese in a large bowl until completely combined (your hands work best for this).
- Roll into small balls about 1 inch. My balls were a little too large (that’s what he said). So next time I would concentrate on making them smaller.
- Place truffles in the fridge for about 30 minutes. This makes it a little easier when dipping in the chocolate
- Melt the green mint chips in the microwave per the instructions.
- Using a toothpick or two forks, cover half of the truffles in the melted mint chocolate. Place covered truffles on wax paper.
- Melt the white chocolate chips. This is go at your own risk. I tried two times to do this in the microwave and ruined 2 bags of white chocolate chips. I don’t know what was going on because the mint chips melted just fine. Anyway, thank goodness my husband is amazing and ran to get me a THIRD bag from the store. Using a makeshift double broiler, I finally got some melted white chocolate!
- Repeat step six using half of the truffles in the melted white chocolate.
- Put the rest of the melted mint and white chocolate in ziplock bags. Cut a teeny-tiny hole and decorate your truffles.
- Place truffles back in fridge. Eat when desired!
