St. Patrick's Day Mint Oreo Truffles

I don't feel that these bad boys need much of an introduction. If you've had Oreo truffles before, you know two things:

ONE - they are deceptively easy
TWO - they are ridiculously addicting

The mint version is no exception. In fact, I thought they were more delicious than the original. (Didn't think it was possible? Try them.)

Oh, and they can be green without being unappetizing. This will be my new go-to easy-to-make-and-impress-people-with St. Patrick's Day treat.

Mint Oreo Truffles

1 box Mint Creme Oreos
1 pkg cream cheese (8 oz.), room temperature
1 bag green-colored melting candies (I used Wilton candy melts)
1 bag white chocolate chips

1. Blend the Oreos together in a food processor. Put in a bowl & mix thoroughly with the cream cheese. 

2. Roll into little balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Place in freezer & let freeze for at least an hour. (They will need to be hard to dip in the chocolate - otherwise it's just a mess.)

3. Melt the chocolate (do this one color at a time) using a double boiler, if you have one. If not, you can do it they way I do - bring a pot of water to boil, then remove from heat. Place chocolate in a glass/metal bowl on top of the pot, and allow to melt slowly, while mixing. If the chocolate is not smooth enough (can be caused by overheating or water getting in it), add vegetable oil (about 1/4 tsp at a time).

4. Roll the balls in the chocolate, and place on a non-stick surface (I found that silicon baking sheets work really well). Allow to cool, then use a spoon to drizzle the alternate color on top. Or just sprinkles some cute sprinkles on top before chocolate dries. Enjoy!
