Easy Mint Truffles? Yes, you read that correctly! Okay, so this is really the Oreo truffles that many people make, but I prefer to make them with mint Oreos because that is my favorite flavor combination!

My friend actually thought that I made them with the Thin Mint cookies from Girl Scouts, which you could also do. However, I hoard those for myself and don’t share them, haha!

Ingredients You Will Need

  • Cream Cheese
  • Mint Oreos
  • Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate

Equipment You May Need

  • Food Processor
  • Medium-sized bowl
  • Cookie Sheets
  • Double Boiler

Helpful Tips

  • I have tried using chocolate chips in a pinch and they really don’t melt and coat the truffles as well as the baking chocolate does. If that’s all you have, chocolate chips will work, but they won’t be as easy to work with.
  • The cream cheese has to be softened, so if I remember, I set it out a couple of hours before I am going to make these.
  • To crush the Oreos, you can put them in a zip-top bag and crush them with a rolling pin or use a food processor if you have one.
  • Fair warning: when rolling the balls, your hands will get messy!

Variations

  • Use peanut butter Oreos for peanut butter truffles
  • Use golden Oreos with white chocolate
  • Use plain Oreos for cookies and cream truffles
