Prep:

30 Min

Ingredients

1 pkg
(16.6 oz) oreos, regular or mint (not double stuffed)
8 oz
cream cheese, softened
3 c
mint chocolate chips
1 tsp
shortening

OPTIONAL GARNISH

2
squares vanilla almond bark
1/8 tsp
peppermint extract
green food coloring (i used gel coloring)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grind up oreos in a food processor.
2
Mix together with cream cheese. Form into balls and refrigerate 30-60 minutes until firm.
3
In small saucepan, melt mint chocolate chips together with shortening. Using 2 forks, dip balls into chocolate, lifting from pan and allowing excess to drip off the truffle. Place on a wax paper lined pan and refrigerate to allow chocolate to harden.
4
Melt vanilla almond bark in the microwave for 45 seconds. Stir. Microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each time, until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract and food coloring until you get the shade of green you'd like. Drizzle onto the truffles however you'd like. I put it into a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off and piped it on.
