No Bake OREO Mint Truffles

Easy no bake OREO Mint Truffles with an Andes Candies coating. The classic cookie-and-cream-cheese filling with a perfect minty finish!

After creating a basic OREO Truffle recipe a couple of years ago, I have been meaning to create more variations. I decided to start with an OREO Mint Truffle.

I knew that adding the exact right intensity and flavor of mint was crucial.

Should I use mint extra in the filling? In the chocolate coating? Should I use mint OREOs? Something other minty ingredient?

I got it right on the first try: Melted Andes Candies on the outside.

Just like my classic version, you start with an entire package of OREO cookies.

I definitely recommend using a food processor to crush the cookies. You can also add the cream cheese to it, too.

OREO Cookie Balls are already a chocolatey, fudgy bite of deliciousness! The homemade Salted Caramel Sauce puts them over the top.

Roll the truffles and put them in the freezer to chill for about 10 minutes. This will give you exactly enough time to get your Andes Candies melted.

Ever since I bought these mixing bowls, I can't get enough of double-boiling things. Melting chocolate has never been more relaxing! However, your microwave works too. Do 30-second increments at 50% power, stirring after each round.

I also added a minty-colored drizzle using white melting candies with green food coloring. This step is completely optional, but I think it looks great! And it really clues people in to what they are biting.

  1. Can they be made and then frozen?

    Time Saver instead of white candy melts and food coloring; use GREEN candy melts.

    Genius idea to melt the Andes candies for the coating. We have something similar over here.

    I’d forgotten about these sorts of cream cheese truffles. I think I was once served some ginger and apricot ones – they were amazing!5 stars
