The other night my Aunt was talking about a recipe that she loves to make when Mint Oreos are in stores. They sounded so good that we immediately rushed to the store to buy the ingredients! I can't actually tell you what she calls them (although you might get an idea when you look at the pictures in a minute) so just for your viewing pleasure and to keep them rated G for everyone, I have boringly renamed them Mint Oreo Truffles.
|A ball of minty, delicious, sickly goodness|
They truly are delicious. They are VERY sickly. I never, ever say this because I have the ability to happily eat the most sickliest things on the planet when other people are sitting there going green around the gills, but I could only eat one of these. I think if I made them again, I would make them much smaller!!
All you need is:
2 packs of Mint Oreos
2 packs of softened Cream Cheese (The rectangle packs)
1 package of White Chocolate or Vanilla Almond Bark
1 package of Milk or Dark Chocolate Almond Bark
Put the cream cheese in a large bowl and crush all the oreos, we did it by hand but it probably would have been easier using a ziplock bag and a rolling pin! Mix it all together until it look something like this:
|Any clues on what the real name is yet?|
In 2 separate pans, over a very low heat, melt the almond bark until smooth.
Roll the oreo mixture into balls (I did them the size of golf balls, you may want to roll them smaller than that!) and using a spoon (because the almond bark is hot!) dip each ball into the almond bark, alternating between white a dark and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Put them in the freezer until the chocolate hardens and you are good to go!
If you have any problems finding almond bark like I did! Then I suggest you look in either Walmart or Michaels! They are the only places that I have ever seen this!
Let me know how they turn out!
