I recently got to attend my first blog conference organized by one of my favorite bloggers Six Sisters. It was such a blast and I loved being able to meet the Six Sisters in person. They are such an amazing and talented group of girls. I learned so much at the conference and was able to make friendships with other fellow bloggers at the conference.
The Six Sisters just released their first cookbook. I was so excited to buy a copy at the conference and there are so many great recipes and fun crafts inside! Book is available here. I have seen these thin mint truffles on pinterest. Thin mint cookies are my favorite girl scout cookies with Samoas coming in at a close second. I knew that I had to make these delicious truffles and I loved how easy they were! I took them to a party with me on Saturday and they were a huge hit. The mint flavor and chocolate in these combined make them amazing!
Rating: 5 stars Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Review: I used the entire package of cream cheese and the original recipe called for 1/2 package. They were so yummy but you can reduce the cream cheese in half if you want to. These are also so fun for St Patricks Day or anytime you want a fun treat! I will be making these again, especially when thin mints are my favorite!

Thin mint truffles
These are also so fun for St Patricks Day or anytime you want a fun treat! I will be making these again, especially when thin mints are my favorite!
- 1 package (9 ounce) thin mint girl scout cookies (or Keebler grasshopper cookies)
- 1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
- 1 Bag (12 oz) Guittards Green Mint chips (or green candy melts)
- 5 oz white chocolate chips
- In a food processor pulse the thin mint cookies until they are fine in consistency.
- Blend together crushed thin mint cookies and softened cream cheese. You can mix them by hand, or I used my kitchenAid mixer.
- Roll the mixture into tablespoon sized balls and set on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow them to chill in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden. This will make them easier to roll in the melted chocolate.
- Melt the green mint chips in the microwave stirring 30 seconds at a time being careful not to overcook. Roll the balls into the melted chocolate to coat and place them to harden on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- For the white chocolate drizzle, melt the chocolate 30 seconds at a time until melted. Spoon the melted chocolate into a plastic baggie and cut a tiny slit in the corner and drizzle the chocolate over the top of the truffles. Store the truffles in the fridge until ready to serve.
