Mint Oreo Truffles Ingredients

Mint Oreo Truffles raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 38 finely crushed mint Oreo cookies (use the entire cookies with cream centers), approximately 4 cups
  • 12 ounces chocolate almond bark
  • 1 cup green candy melts (optional garnish)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MINT OREOS: In these easy Oreo truffles, you can substitute thin mints for the mint Oreos.

CHOCOLATE: You could also use white chocolate almond bark rather than chocolate almond bark for a twist on these truffles.

How to Make This Mint Oreo Truffles Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If you use a food processor to crush the chocolate cookies into fine crumbs, I have found it much easier to crush them in batches. The chocolate sandwich cookies are usually packaged in rows of 3, and that’s how I break up the batches. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also crush them in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin.

STEP ONE: Using either a stand mixer or a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat the softened cream cheese for 1 to 1½ minutes until smooth.

PRO TIP:

Always make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature to help avoid cream cheese lumps in the truffle dough.

STEP TWO: Add the crushed cookies and continue to beat the cream cheese mixture until well incorporated. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skip the chilling time. The chilled balls will be much easier to work with than ones at room temperature.

STEP THREE: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

STEP FOUR: Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the Oreo mixture. Roll the scoops into balls and place the Oreo cookie balls on the prepared baking sheet.

STEP FIVE: Add the chocolate almond bark to a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, and stir well. Continue heating in 30-second intervals until completely melted and smooth.

STEP SIX: Roll each truffle in the melted almond bark. Place the truffle on a fork and gently tap to remove any excess coating. Use a spoon to pour the melted chocolate coating over any bare spots. Use a toothpick to gently push the truffle onto the lined baking sheet.

STEP SEVEN: Once all the truffle balls are coated, add the green candy melts to a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until smooth. Use either a fork, a drizzle spoon, or a small squeeze bottle to lightly drizzle the melted green candy melts over the coated truffles. Allow the truffles to harden completely before serving.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftover chocolate mint Oreo truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can also freeze the truffles for up to 3 months. Allow the truffles to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

    I’ve been making Mint Oreo Truffles for over a decade (usually over 30 dozen each holiday season since everyone loves them!) but I’m having trouble finding generic/affordable mint Oreos this year. Does anyone have any experience with using regular Oreos but adding peppermint extract to bring out more mint flavor? Thanks!
