Girl Scout Thin Mint Truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 sleeve of Girl Scout Thin Mints (about x cookies)
  • 1 jar cream cheese frosting or 1 block of cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. chocolate, melted (white, milk, semi-sweet, dark, etc.)
  • 1 tsp mint extract (optional)
  • sprinkles (optional)

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse Thin Mints until you are left with crumbs. (Work in batches if necessary). Set aside in a mixing bowl.
  2. To the crumbs, add about ½ of the jar of cream cheese frosting. (Add more if desired. I used about ¾ of the jar.) Mix well.  (I’ve seen these made with cream cheese….. eyeball your amount and do a taste test!) 
  3. Roll “dough” into 1 inch balls. Place on wax paper and refrigerate until firm.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate for dipping. Add mint extract, if using. (I recommend it!)
  5. Dip the balls one by one, coating all sides.
  6. Return to wax paper to dry. Cover with sprinkles, if using.
