Thin Mint Truffles

First, thank you for all of your comments, texts, and emails yesterday :)

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.

Ingredients:
  • 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

Directions:
  1. Crush cookies into fine crumbs in a food processor.
  2. Mix crushed cookies and softened cream cheese in a large bowl until completely combined (your hands work best for this).
  3. 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.
  4. Place truffles in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  This makes it a little easier when dipping in the chocolate
  5. Melt the green mint chips in the microwave per the instructions. 
  6. Using a toothpick or two forks, cover half of the truffles in the melted mint chocolate.  Place covered truffles on wax paper.
  7. 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!
  8. Repeat step six using half of the truffles in the melted white chocolate.
  9. Put the rest of the melted mint and white chocolate in ziplock bags.  Cut a teeny-tiny hole and decorate your truffles.
  10. Place truffles back in fridge.  Eat when desired!
