OREO MINT TRUFFLES
By Peggi Anne Tebben cookiequeen
I started making these several years ago, when my niece gave me the recipe. Her's didn't have mint in them though. I added it. I have tried about everything to coat them with. Don't do crushed peppermint! It will start to drip on you. Like, turn to water & be real sticky. I do like crushed pretzels though as a coating. It gives it a salty/sweet taste.
chocolate oreo's ( not double stuff)
1 (8 oz.) pkg
cream cheese, softened
chocolate almond bark
peppermint oil (adjust to your taste)
toppings of your choice
2Add the cream cheese & process until you can see no more white again & the cream cheese is fully incorporated.
5In a glass bowl, melt the chocolate with the almond bark by starting on 1 minute, then stirring & repeating every 30 seconds until melted. Do not over-melt or it will seize up on you. Also, never get even 1 drop of water in it, or it will seize up.
9If you would rather drizzle with a colored chocolate, omit step #8 & melt & color the drizzle & drizzle on top after they are set .
