Chocolate Mint Truffles

Yield: 12 truffles

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 1 – 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

10 oz box of Keebler Grasshopper Cookies

4 oz (1/2 block) cream cheese, softened

almond bark (white)

green food coloring

Directions:

1.  Crush the cookies very finely in a food processor or in a sealed bag. When cookies resemble small crumbs, place in a large mixing bowl.

2.  Mix the softened cream cheese into the cookies with a spoon or you can use a hand mixer.

3.  Roll into 1” balls.  Place on a wax paper or nonstick mat lined baking sheet.

4.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

5.  Melt  almond bark and add green food coloring

6.  Dip truffles completely in bark.  I used two forks to kinda roll them around in the bark and then let the excess drip off.

7.  Place back on lined baking sheet and let set.

8.  If  you want to decorate, you can melt some chocolate and spoon over the top

Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  May be frozen as well.  Take out and thaw in the fridge a few hours before you want to serve them.
