As you know I am a huge fan of anything chocolate, add mint and I’m in heaven! These bites were so easy to make and taste just like Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookies!
- 6 candy canes- finely chopped
- 1 pack of 36 oreos- finely chopped
- One 8 oz package of cream cheese
- 16 oz total of melting milk chocolate
I found it easiest to place the oreos in a gallon sized ziploc bag and crush them with a hammer (classy I know). I did the same for the candy canes
Mix the cream cheese to soften it before mixing with other ingredients
Set aside 1 tbsp of crushed candy canes, mix remaining candy with oreos and cream cheese
Shape 1 inch balls, place on cookie trays and freeze for about 10 minutes. Melt chocolate in the microwave and take trays out of the freezer one at a time. I would melt smaller portions of chocolate and concentrate on covering one tray of balls at a time. If they sit out of the freezer for too long they start to get soft and fall apart.
After placing chocolate covered balls back on the cookie tray sprinkle with remainder of candy canes and then place in the refrigerator.
I ended up running out of milk chocolate and had to use white chocolate for the last tray but they turned out so well! It would be fun to do milk, dark, and white and arrange them on a serving tray for a party.
Now you don’t have to wait for Girl Scout cookies each year! Whip up a batch of these, sit back, and enjoy!
