Thin Mint Truffles

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!

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!

Course Dessert, Snack

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. In a food processor pulse the thin mint cookies until they are fine in consistency.
  2. Blend together crushed thin mint cookies and softened cream cheese.  You can mix them by hand, or I used my kitchenAid mixer.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  1. I just made some Thin Mint Truffles love them! And the green is perfect to coat them in 🙂 Thin Mint’s are my favorite girl scout cookie too! I love how easy these truffles but they are so darn tasty! Just like Oreo truffles 🙂

  2. I was so excited to meet you at the conference! Loved hanging out with you for a few classes!!! Those truffles look amazing! It must be a thin mint kind of a week because Aimee and I also posted Thin Mint recipes 🙂

  3. I love thin mints and I’ve been known to put them in the freezer to hide them from my husband and kids! If I made these truffles I’d be hiding them too! 🙂

  4. Wow, those look so good! I love thin mints! Hey, it was great meeting you at the conference! Hope you are having a great birthday cruise with your hubby. 🙂

  5. So I was image searching for recipes with Thin Mints, and there was my face! Haha!! It was so fun meeting you at BYBC last year, so sad I’m not going this year! 🙂

  6. Question, how many does this recipe make? They look absolutely delicious! I might try to make them for a graduation party this coming weekend!

  7. Hi Alyssa,
    I’d like to make these where they could be stored at room temperature. Any suggestions what to mix the cookies with besides cream cheese so they don’t have to be refrigerated?
