Thin Mint Truffles: the recipe

Take 1 package of Thin Mints or the comparable Keebler Grasshopper Cookies & crumble the contents.
Take 4 0z. of cream cheese & combine with the ground cookies until they are well-blended.
Form small balls with the mixture & dip into white chocolate bark (1/2 a bar ought to do) until fully coated.
Place dipped cookie balls onto wax paper.
Before the white chocolate hardens, take mint chocolate chips (Andes mints crumbled works beautifully) & sprinkle on top.
Place truffles into freezer for an hour or two & viola!  Dessert is served.

I first discovered the amazing Peach Mimosa at Silky O’ Sullivan’s in Memphis (read my accompanying post “mapped it: Memphis, Tennessee” to see what else I found in the city of blues).  I simply adored the fruity take on the classic Mimosa & adapted the recipe for a simple style to serve at home.  Hope you enjoy these two heavenly treats as much as I do!
