Chocolate Mint Truffles – 3 ingredients – easy, easy, easy! I love recipes that are this easy and look so beautiful! Enjoy!
1 package Oreo cookies (I used mint Oreo)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (using different extracts allows for subtle flavour changes…I’ve used mint extract, upped to 1 tsp) (optional)
1 lb milk chocolate (melting chocolate, semi-sweet or dark chocolate can be used)
1/2 lb white chocolate
Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or overnight.
Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. (You can also melt chocolate in a zip lock bag in the microwave. Cut the tip from one corner when melted and drizzle over truffles) Let cool.
Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.
