Ingredients

  • 1 package Mint OREO Cookies finely crushed (15.25 oz. pkg)
  • 8 oz cream cheese 1 brick, softened
  • 2 cups chocolate chips mint green & semi-sweet

Instructions

  • Crush the OREO cookies.  I used a blender, but you can use a small food processor, or you can place the cookies in a sealed plastic bag and smash them with a meat mallet!  I found that the blender worked best when I did half the cookies at a time, rather than trying to crush all 36 at once. Use a fork to stir the mixture up between blends to get the finest consistency.
  • Mix the crumbs with the cream cheese until well blended.
  • Use a cookie scoop to measure out about 1.5 TBSP of the cookie mixture and roll each scoop into a ball. Place Oreo balls on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Freeze the balls for about 20-30 minutes before dipping.*
  • Melt the candy coating or melting chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute 20 seconds. Stir gently until smooth, returning to the microwave in 15 second increments, if needed.
  • Dip each ball in the chocolate and place back on lined pan.
  • Place 1 TBSP green chocolate chips or semi sweet chocolate chips in a sandwich bag. Microwave for 40 seconds. Gently massage the bag. Snip a tiny corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate onto each Oreo ball. Sprinkle with green sprinkles, if you’d like.

Notes

*Don’t skip this step! The balls need to be chilled before you dip them in the melted chocolate. If they aren’t chilled, you will end up with a lot of crumbs in your melting chocolate and they won’t look quite as pretty! You’re welcome to divide the directions into 2 parts and make the truffles the day or night before, then dip them in chocolate the next day.
