Thin Mint Truffles

Yes it is Girl Scout cookie season as most of you already know and yes I am addicted to Girl Scout cookies.  During lacrosse practice yesterday I started to think "How good would those Oreo Truffles be with Thin Mints!"  And hey, I need to get some of the 15 boxes we ordered outta the house, however, the 3 day long black out did help.

My friend Zoe, who also loves to bake, said to wait and we can make them together.  I was super happy except she had an ambulance meeting to go to and I REALLY wanted these truffles so I amde them anyways..I know I know, how rude but if and when you make these you will understand. Sorry Zoe!  But no worries because after our lacrosse practice on friday Zoe, Claudia and I are planning to bake! YAY--makes me happy.

Thin Mints. Cream Cheese. Chocolate. Can I ask what could go wrong?
Begin my rummaging through your cabinet searching for the last unopened box of Thin Mints.  Don't worry, I still got some in my freezer I have a week to finish until Passover, shouldn't be an issue.

Now open one sleeve and dump into the food processor (or mini chopper because mini seems to be so much more convenient--have you seen those Baked By Melissa Cupcakes?! I can eat a whole box in one bite!!)

and grind to teeny bits.
 and dump into a bowl

Now repeat with the second sleeve of cookies.

Now time for the cream cheese...

I started with 4 tablespoons of the gooey stuff
 but added another tablespoon of cream cheese to get it to the right consistency
but boy was it hard to incorporate--the fork method failed

so I resorted to my hands

Once all incorporated--roll into balls and freeze like you do with the cake balls.  Freeze for about 15 minutes or until cold enough to dip into chocolate without it falling apart

Once ready--melt the chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute. 

Then dip each ball individually into the chocolate 

allow to cool on wax paper.

drizzle to cover all the imperfections

They got great reviews from daddy and friends at school! 

I'm feeling sick from all the work and lacrosse so I am heading to bed to do all my English homework..

With love and cupcakes,


  1. I want to make these but I dont have any GS cookies. I better try to hunt some down.

  2. I will be home tomorrow. Save me some or else :0
