Chocolate Mint Cookie Truffle Recipe

Chocolate Mint Cookie Truffle Recipe
Craving chocolate? Love Mint? These easy Chocolate Mint Cookie Truffles can be made quickly. They are no-bake, and the base is made in the microwave. Although there is some chilling time, once the truffle mixture is ready, it goes really fast. A small scoop is easiest, but a teaspoon will do, and the mixture is easily rolled by hand into balls. The balls are then rolled into unsweetened baking cocoa, which gives the truffles a slight bitter flavor before a surge of chocolaty, creamy mint.
These keep for a long time and can be frozen, if necessary. They are good year round, and are also an easy addition to holiday dessert platters or buffets. And incidentally, don’t forget to serve them on Valentine’s Day where chocolate is a must.

Makes about 50 truffles

1 1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon mint extract

1 15-16 ounce package mint sandwich cookies

1/2 cup dark unsweetened baking cocoa, (about)

  1. Measure the chocolate chips and whipping cream into a microwave-safe glass container.
  2. Microwave 3 minutes; let sit 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk until thick; stir in the mint extract.
  4. Place the cookies in a food processor and process to very fine crumbs.
  5. Stir the cookies into the chocolate mixture and mix well.
  6. Chill until the mixture is set enough to scoop.
  7. Measure the cocoa onto a large plate.
  8. Scoop 1" balls from the mixture, roll into balls, and roll in the cocoa.
  9. Chill until set. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
