Honestly, this is one of my favorite recipes using thin mint cookies. I make them up and bring them to a party and they are the first thing gone! Obviously, I am happy everyone loves them but sad I never have any to indulge with at home.

HOW TO MAKE THIN MINT COOKIE TRUFFLES:

To begin, use a food processor to crumble up the cookies (or a ziplock bag pounding them instead) until they are in little crumbs. You might need to divide the package in half and do two batches to get them all chopped up.

Then, you are going to add the thin mint cookie crumbs and softened cream cheese into the large mixing bowl and blend them together until they are well mixed and all the crumbs come together.

With the cookie and cream cheese mixture, roll little balls that are about 1 inch and place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Do this until all of the dough has been used.

Then, place the baking sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes so they harden up a little bit. This make them easier to dip in the chocolate and not fall apart.

Once the truffles have been in the fridge for the 30 minutes, begin melting the green mint chips in a microwave-safe bowl. You will heat the chips up in the microwave for 30-second increments. Be sure to stir between each session. Keep doing this until all of the chips are melted and are smooth.

After the green mint chips are melted and ready, roll each of the mint cookie balls in the melted chips until the ball is fully coated.

Then, using two forks, lift the truffle up carefully and hold it there for a minute allowing the excess mint chocolate to drip off before placing the ball back onto the wax paper. You will continue to do this step until all of the truffles are coated.

Now, stick the mint truffles back in the fridge for a couple of minutes or until the chocolate coating has hardened.

If you are interested in decorating the cookies as I did, you will need to melt about a ½ cup of white chocolate chips (or whatever flavor you prefer) the same way you did the green mint chips. Then pour the white chocolate into a small ziplock bag and cut a small corner of the bag.

Using the bag drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the green chocolate coating. You could also put some fun sprinkles or cookie crumbles on top as well!

Then simply return them to the fridge to harden back up.

These will do well in an airtight container in your fridge for 2-3 days so they are ready for your event when you need them (if they last that long).

  22. Erica says:

    The oreo truffles are awesome, can't wait to try these mint ones!
    Cool tip: To keep the melted mint chips or candy-coating soft and workable while you dip the truffle in it, set your bowl on a heating pad...yep, the kind you use for an aching back...here's a new use for it!

    These look so yummy. Would you have an alternative to cream cheese though?

  45. The Girl in the Yellow Jacket says:

    These are so great! But I am having trouble finding the mint green chips! Where can I get them?

  46. Carly Taylor says:

    You can also use regular chocolate :) Here's an example: Thin Mint Truffles

  47. Carly Taylor says:

    These are so pretty. I made something similar here, but without the green chips (I honestly wonder how they make them green? Is it artificial coloring?) and using regular thin mints. Yours would have been PERFECT for St Pattys day!
    -Carly

  48. Cassidy says:

    Such a great treat. I made them and couldn't stop eating them!

  49. Nethfëa says:

    Now that Philadelphia cream cheese has chocolate cream cheeses available, this recipe has the potential to be even more dangerous. :)

  50. Britney {Jesses Girl} says:

    WHY do these have to look so good?! hahaha

  51. Sue Boyer says:

    These would be great at Christmas time mixed in with some other kinds of truffles for a homemade gift.

  52. Katie Drane says:

    Oh my goodness, these look absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

  53. Seaweed and Raine says:

    YUMMMM! I've made oreo and golden oreo truffles recently, but I stabbed them with a toothpick to coat them - and then had to wait ages for it to set so I could put it down! I like you fork idea MUCH better!

  54. JenFlores says:

    Made these today. Super pretty, delicious and easy. Thank you! I could not find the green chips so I opted for the Andes mint chips. They didn't have the fun green color, but the taste was great. Plus, you can always add some color to the white chocolate and drizzle on top. Great gift treat.

  55. Sara D. says:

    Does anyone know roughly how many truffles this recipe makes? Thanks!

  56. Six Sisters says:

    Makes about 30. Depends on how big you roll the balls. Hope this helps. -The Six Sisters

  57. Joseph Shaul says:

    If you want the green color while using actual chocolate instead of palm-oil-filled goop, you can get chocolate-soluble dyes from Chef Rubber and specialty chocolatier vendors. Don't confuse guittard coverture (which must be tempered, but tastes much better) with the chips or "apeels."

  58. Rebecca says:

    Would these keep well overnight in the fridge? I want to make them in advance for a party!!

  59. Michelle @ The Gathering of Friends says:

    These look incredible! I love the color of the green! I just had to feature this recipe in my blog post today for "20 Amazing Desserts for St. Patrick's Day" Here is the link, I would love it if you could stop by and check out your fun recipe!

  60. Cyd says:

    They will be fine in the fridge. Put them in a tupperware or some type of airtight container.

  61. kristi@ishouldbemoppingthefloor says:

    Wow! These look amazingly good! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Cyd!

  62. audrey says:

    I made these last year and they were so yummy! I also have trouble finding mint chocolate chips, but I'm going out to look again. We're having a bake off at my company Christmas party and I want to make them. I will add some red and green food color to the white chocolate to drizzle over them and make them look festive.

  63. Patty says:

    Just made these... they are to die for!!! Do they freeze well?

  64. Momma Cyd says:

    Yes, they will freeze well in an airtight freezer container.
