Thin Mint Cookie Truffles

These cute and yummy truffles really do taste just like the thin mint girl scout cookies and they are also perfect for Saint Patrick's Day too.  They are super easy to make and only require a few ingredients.

All that is needed to make these is a package of Keebler Grasshopper cookies, cream cheese, candy melts and some chocolate chips to add some decorative drizzles over the top. 

Using a food processor pulse the cookies until it is fine and crumbly.

Combine the softened cream cheese and mix thoroughly.

Roll  into small balls about an inch or less around and place on waxed paper.  Refrigerate for about an hour.

Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl for one minute. Then microwave at 30 second intervals and stir until completely melted.   Dip cookie balls into melted candy coating until covered.

Once the cookie balls are coated place them on waxed to paper to harden.

Melt about a cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave until melted.  I fill some inexpensive plastic squeeze bottles with the melted chocolate and just squeeze this back and forth across the truffles.

I also melted some regular chocolate chips to add some more color.
