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?

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

    Tried the recipe as directed. Because it is too much like icing I had a problem with the balls setting up. Even after an overnight in the freezer. Days later…still soft. I was able, with much trouble, to dip into the chocolate. Surprising, since I only use Ghirardelli! However, the bottoms didn’t firm up and solidify, leaving a gooey mess on the wax paper. We’ve decided to make bars with the rest, using an Oreo crust, and a ganache top layer. Never waste. Just invent another recipe!

    It is because the ingredients say powder sugar but the instructions never say to add the powder sugar. I️ think you are forgetting to add that into the mixture.
