Mint Oreo Truffles

Pin It

My little sister Renatta (you know, the one who attributes this spinach dip to the smell of my great grandma!) is quite a character. She's eight years younger than me but her humor is years beyond her age. Her quips and sarcastic comments have everyone around her laughing. She's cute, she's funny...and she's spoiled rotten. Sorry Renatta, but it's true :) I can't complain though, I'm just as guilty as letting her get away with murder as anyone else! Since she was an infant, I've felt a special need to protect her, look out for her, and give her what she wants...in my head, she's always been my baby! (even if she doesn't know it or like it!)

What does Renatta have to do with mint oreo truffles? Everything. Last time I was home, I brought the gingerbread truffles and she couldn't get enough. However, she also requested that I make some mint truffles with Oreos. She also asked for quite a list of Christmas gifts. While I can't promise she's getting all those things on her list, the Oreo truffles I could deliver ;) So Renatta, here you go! There are lots and lots of these truffles awaiting your arrival tomorrow! I can't wait to see you!

One Year Ago: S'mores Bark (a great last minute Christmas treat!)

Mint Oreo Truffles

-1 package Mint Oreos
-1 package cream cheese
-1/2 package chocolate almond bark

1. In a food processor (or by hand in a ziploc bag), pulse Oreos until crumbs. Add cream cheese, mixing until completely combined.
2. Place Oreo cream cheese mixture in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to stiffen slightly. Remove from freezer and roll mixture into 1-inch balls.
3. Melt almond bark in a microwaveable bowl, heating for 30 seconds at a time and stirring. Dip balls into melted bark. Place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Top with sprinkles if desired. Allow to harden and stir in refrigerator or freezer until serving.
