    Mint Chocolate Truffles

    I have another fabulous guest post today…

    Hi everyone! I’m Mallory from Total Noms and I’m so excited Erin has given me the opportunity to share one of my
    favorite holiday dessert recipes with you on Table for Seven today.

    Mint Chocolate Truffles

    One of the best aspects of the holiday season is the
    spirit of sharing with your neighbor. It sounds
    cheesy, but it’s true!

    These mint chocolate truffles are a riff off my Easy Peasy Chocolate Truffles, the recipe
    for which I actually got from my parents’ neighbor who still brings Christmas
    cookies around the  neighborhood
    homes every year. I love this tradition and am happy to carry it on by sharing
    this recipe with you all!

    Mint Chocolate Truffles
    While they might look fancy, these couldn’t be easier
    to make. Combining Oreos, cream cheese and a hint of mint makes for a really
    fun treat. Combined with the crunch of a hard chocolate  shell, these actually look quite sophisticated too!

    Mint Chocolate
    Prep time: 10
    Makes around
    24 truffles
    1 package oreos (14.3 oz)
    1 8oz package of cream cheese at room
    1/2 tsp mint extract (but you can add more to
    8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
    Melted white chocolate and peppermint crystal
    sugar, for garnish (optional)
    1.      Crush
    up the Oreos in a food processor until completely crumbled. Pour crushed Oreos
    into a large bowl. Using your fingers, mash cream cheese into the crushed Oreos
    until fully combined and there are no signs of cream cheese streaks.
    2.      Form
    the cookie-cream cheese mixture into 1-inch balls with your hands. Place on a
    cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or foil and refrigerate the balls for a
    few minutes while you melt your chocolate.
    3.      Place
    semi-sweet chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave for one
    minute on high. Remove and stir. Microwave in 15-second increments, stirring in
    between, until chocolate is fully melted. If desired, you can also add 1/4 tsp
    of mint extract to the chocolate and stir to combine. 
    4.    Carefully
    coat the Oreo balls in the melted chocolate and place back on the lined cookie
    sheet. Decorate with melted white chocolate, crystal sugar, or any other
    decorations you like. Allow to chill completely in the fridge, then serve and

    Make up a
    plate of these and share with someone you love this season!
