Thanks to all the dedicated Olympics watching we’ve been doing in the evenings, I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to whipping up sweet treats. But it’s a good thing – it’s challenged me to come up with things that can be made in next to no time and with minimal effort.
That’s exactly what I came up with the other night – super quick, simple and delicious mint-chocolate truffles.
These are based on the Oreo truffles that are doing the rounds online. In case you haven’t seen them around, all these truffles are made of is finely crushed biscuits, cream cheese and chocolate for dipping.
I swapped Oreos for Mint Slice biscuits, threw them in the food processor and ground them up until I had a fine crumb. Then add cream cheese and process until well-mixed and smooth. Once smooth, just roll the mixture in bite-sized balls – I made mine with about a teaspoon of mixture. Once they’re all rolled pop them in the fridge for 20 minutes of so, until quite firm. I decided to half dip each ball into chocolate and finish them with a squiggle of mint green icing.
