Last month I made some Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies that were simply OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious. They were so good, they got me thinking about truffles. I could just shovel that frosting into my mouth, but why not create a treat that serves the same purpose, but is a little more dainty?

Okay, maybe not dainty. How about “acceptable”? I mean, do people think it is okay to eat frosting by the spoonful? Sure, in the privacy of your own home, but at parties?

And I promise they are so easy to assemble.

A few quick tips:

  • Start with softened butter and cream cheese. If it’s too cold, it doesn’t get as smooth and creamy as you need it for the filling!
  • Make sure when it’s time to add the extract you use PEPPERMINT, not mint. Unless you like spearmint. These can be now known as after dinner truffles…no need to brush your teeth, these taste like toothpaste. Yeah. Let’s avoid that and just use peppermint, m’kay?
  • Let’s talk food coloring. I get the best results when I use Americolor gels. I dip a toothpick into the gel and “swipe” it into my butter mixture. This little bit is all I need to get the soft green coloring. If you only have drops, just add one drop at a time. Ain’t nobody wanna eat grass colored mints. Ha!
  • Use a 1 Tbsp scoop to portion out your filling. You’ll want to drop your truffles onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. And FREEZE them for about an hour (more than that is fine too).
  • Use finger tips to shape frozen truffles into a ball. Then use a toothpick to dip truffle into melted chocolate. Again, USE GOOD CHOCOLATE. I love the bags of Ghirardelli Melting Wafers. Not only do they melt smooth, but they taste delicious too. I loved using a combination of white and dark chocolate. Feel free to do both, or choose your favorite

    I dare ya to eat frosting by the spoonful at a party, Aimee. Like, I’d pay good money to watch you do that at a really formal party. Whip out that tub of frosting and have at it!
    These are gorgeous. Love that shade of green!

  2. Yum! Eating frosting by the spoonful is always appropriate in my book!

  3. Extremely quick and simple to make with my young daughter. Love it!!!!!!!

  4. I will definitely try this recipe! Looks super yummy. I love white chocolate and minty flavour.

    Does it have to be food coloring gel? will regular food coloring do?

  6. These look delish! Thanks!

  7. wow! this looks so tasty and it is easy too. Will definitely try this. Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

    Oh, Aimee-I could just cry when I see a recipe like this for truffles. I made up truffles just yesterday making my ganache from Belgium chocolate, heavy cream, butter and amaretto. Covering a ball of frosting with chocolate doesn’t quite qualify as a truffle.

    I would urge you to try the real thing sometime. There’s no comparison. Jan

    Can you freeze them?

  10. can you freeze truffles and if so , how long ?

    I tried my hand at these. For some reason, my mind didn’t comprehend the amounts and I was originally expecting more cream cheese and less butter and for it to have a “cheesecakey” flavor. I’ll try it again with a half stick of butter and 8oz of cream cheese and see what happens. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    In my other life I was at a “dress up” party and the hostess had a gorgeous watermelon basket with the most divine dip ever!!  Turns out it was two ingredients, large Cool Whip and rum. Her husband brought out two spoons~ one for each of us~and he also brought the back up dip.  We ate the whole thing and resorted to vanilla wafers when the fruit was gone!!   Spiced rum, dark rum or plain rum or any other rum or other booze you may have on hand. Triple Sec is also yummy~orange with a kick!!

    Plan to make these for a ladies luncheon in March. Also plan to freeze them and thaw the day before. Look and sound delicious. I know the ladies will enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing. God Bless You ! ! !

    How many truffles does the recipe make ? I can’t find it .

  15. Ermina

    I am guessing these can’t be make with low-fat or whipped cream cheese . Is that right? They don’t seem to set.

  16. Ermina

    Meant ‘can’t be made’.
