Thin Mint Truffles #FillTheCookieJar

Thin Mint Truffles

It’s Girl Scout Cookie time.  That time of year that I’m tempted with cookies everywhere I go, even work.  They’re everywhere?  And how can you resist alal those sweet girls saying “Ma’am, would you like to buy some cookies?”  Of course I would!  I’m not made of steal!

For years my cookie of choice has been the Thin Mint.  How can you pass up the delicious combination of chocolate and mint.  And frozen?  They’re even better!  So why not pulverize them and add cream cheese?  That couldn’t hurt.

Thus… the Thin Mint Truffles.

I am still taking cookies to work to sell for our upcoming Costa Rica trip.  My coworkers flipped over these.  I think it took all of 90 minutes for them to buy every single one.  They were even fighting over who was going to get the next batch.  They’re that good.

Thin Mint Truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 9oz box Girl Scout Thin Mints {Or Keebler’s Grasshopper Cookies!}
  • 4 oz cream cheese, slightly softened
  • 8 oz Guittard’s green mint chips
  • 8 oz white chocolate chips or white chocolate bark

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the Thin Mints a few times, and them blend them down until they are just crumbs. It might be easier to do this in two batches. Next, mix in the cream cheese and crumbs together in a bowl until well incorporated.
  2. Roll the mixture into 1 inch size balls, and place them on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes, so the balls are easier to dip in the chocolate and do not fall apart.
  3. Once the truffles have been in the fridge for a while, melt the green mint chips in a double broiler or a microwave safe bowl.
  4. Roll half of the truffles in the green mint chocolate, and place them back on the wax paper.
  5. Melt the white chocolate and roll the remaining truffles.
  6. Once they have dried a little, place the remaining white chocolate in a small zip lock bag and cut a tiny bit of one corner off the bag. Start small at first, then if you need, make the hole a little larger. Drizzle the white chocolate over the green truffles. Do the same with the mint chocolate over the white truffles. Place the baking sheet back in the fridge so that the chocolate can set.
  7. Now here's the hard part - don't eat them all in one sitting.
