Mint Oreo Truffles
Author: adapted from Kraft Foods
Prep time: 25 mins
Total time: 25 mins
Ingredients
  • 1 - 15.25 ounce package Mint Oreo Cookies
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 5 Mint Oreo Cookies (optional)
Instructions
  1. For the truffles:
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Place 15.25 ounces of Mint Oreo Cookies and cream cheese into a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until smooth. Transfer mixture to small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  4. Use a small cookie dough scoop to shape the truffles, placing the scoops onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for several hours to set.
  5. If topping with cookie crumbs, place 5 Mint Oreo Cookies into a plastic freezer bag and smash them to a fine consistency. Transfer to a small bowl.
  6. Partially melt chocolate chips and then stir the chocolate until completely smooth. This will help temper the chocolate.
  7. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate using two forks. Transfer the truffles to a second parchment lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with cookie crumbs, if desired.
  8. Betsy's tidbits:
  9. If you want to have some crunch to your truffles, do not process the crumbs as finely.
  10. Because the melted chocolate sets quickly, sprinkle the cookie crumbs over each dipped truffle as soon as it is transferred to the baking sheet.
  11. Milk, semisweet or bittersweet chocolate may be used for dipping the truffles.
Notes
Additional time is needed to refrigerate the truffles.
