No-Bake Thin Mint Cookie Truffles Recipe

Well, I am happy to announce that I found a Girl Scout in my area and my Girl Scout Cookie order is in! Now the waiting game begins . . .

In the meantime, I whipped up a batch of these yummy truffles. Remember our Oreo Truffles? These are just like those, but made with delicious Thin Mint Cookies instead (or you can use Keebler’s Grasshopper Cookies if you are waiting for your Girl Scout Cookies to arrive like I am).
These little balls of goodness are amazing (especially if you love the mint and chocolate combo!). Best part about them: no baking required and only 3 ingredients are needed!
These would also be so fun for St. Patrick’s Day!

No-Bake Thin Mint Cookie Truffles Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 (9 oz) package of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies (or Keebler Grasshopper cookies)
  • 1/2 package (4 oz) cream cheese, softened (I used fat free and it worked great)
  • 1 (12 oz) bag Guittard's Green Mint Chips (I just found these at the grocery store)*

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the Thin Mints a few times, and then blend them down until they are just crumbs. It might be easier to do this in two batches (even if you don't have a food processor, you can still make these. Throw the cookies in a big Ziploc bag and start pounding them with a hammer until you have a lot of fine crumbs).
  2. Next, mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs together in a bowl until well-mixed. Roll the mixture into 1 inch size balls, and place them on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes, so the balls are easier to dip in the chocolate and do not fall apart.
  3. Once the truffles have been in the fridge for a while, melt the green mint chips in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave. Heat the chips for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each heat burst. Repeat until the chips are all melted.
  4. Roll each ball in the melted chips until it is fully covered. I usually use two forks to push the truffle around until it is all covered. Then, using the two forks, carefully pick up the truffle and allow the excess mint chocolate to run off before placing back on the wax paper. Repeat with all the truffles.
  5. Stick the truffles back in the fridge for a couple of minutes or until the mint chocolate is hardened.
  6. If you want to decorate your truffles as I did, melt about 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips (or almond bark or white candy coating-whatever you want) the same way that you melted the mint chips. Spoon the white chocolate in a small Ziplock bag and cut a tiny bit of one corner off the bag. Start small at first, then if you need, make the hole a little larger. Drizzle the white chocolate over the green truffles.
  7. Place back in the fridge until you are ready to devour eat them.
  8. *If you can't find those green mint chips, these can be made with almond bark or vanilla candy coating. It would also be cute to set aside small amount of cookie crumbs and sprinkle them on top of the truffles. Sprinkles also look cute on these too!

  1. Found this on Pinterest today and I just made them, so easy and really awesome! I used a bag of mint and dark chocolate chips I got on clearance a couple weeks back so the only thing I needed was some cookies. I used the Keebler's grasshopper cookies because sadly I don't know any girl scouts to buy from!
  2. YUMMY! I shared this on my facebook page.
  3. These look so amazingly yummy (and cute!). I can't imagine how excited my kids will be to eat GREEN treats! : )

    I'd LOVE it if you'd share this at Feature Friday FREE-FOR-ALL...going on right now!

  4. Made these today. Super pretty, delicious and easy. Thank you! I could not find the green chips so I opted for the Andes mint chips. They didn't have the fun green color, but the taste was great. Plus, you can always add some color to the white chocolate and drizzle on top. Great gift treat.
  5. If you want the green color while using actual chocolate instead of palm-oil-filled goop, you can get chocolate-soluble dyes from Chef Rubber and specialty chocolatier vendors. Don't confuse guittard coverture (which must be tempered, but tastes much better) with the chips or "apeels."

    Wow! These look amazingly good! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Cyd!
  8. I made these last year and they were so yummy! I also have trouble finding mint chocolate chips, but I'm going out to look again. We're having a bake off at my company Christmas party and I want to make them. I will add some red and green food color to the white chocolate to drizzle over them and make them look festive.
