SUPER Easy Holiday Truffles: Mint & Smores

These truffles are an instant crowd pleaser at any holiday get together. I’ve neverbeenso thrilled to create an easy recipe to bring to parties that can be made ahead and easily distributed. They’re also a super easy no-bake dessert. They do take a little time to chill in between batches, but you can do other things in the mean time, and look how darn pretty they are!! Each batch only uses 5-6 ingredients! You could just make one flavor, but I’m a lover of chocolate mint AND smores, so I opt to make both! And now with all the new oreo flavors, you can really be creative!

These super easy truffles are an instant crowd pleaser at any holiday party! You can really get creative with the flavors, but I opt for chocolate mint and smores!

Crush your cookies in a food processor, or get any of that holiday stress out and crush them yourself!

Next, add your softened cream cheese. I mixed this all up using my hands, it’s A LOT easier than trying to combine using a spoon.  Ultimately, you want it combined like so.

Make sure to give the filling adequate time to chill (at least an hour), so that it’s easier to roll into uniform balls. Then start your rolling!

Let these chill for at least 2 hours or overnight, so that they don’t fall apart as you dip them in the melting chocolate. I found that using tools, like these from Wilton, make the truffle dipping process SO much easier!

I topped the smores truffles with crushed graham crackers and drizzled red and white chocolate over the mint truffles!
