Social media to the rescue! I tweeted about wanting Thin Mints and had two local offers within minutes. I got to thinking about you, and how you would feel looking at these truffle pops with no hopes of Thin Mints for another year, and bought 3 additional boxes. Scroll down past the recipe for your chance to win a Thin Mint Truffle Pops kit. Add cream cheese and you will have these decadent truffle pops in no time:
I call these The “Ultimate” Thin Mint Truffle Pops for good reason: instead of dipping them in chocolate or vanilla candy melts, I found dark chocolate mint candy melts. Mint chocolate is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, so I couldn’t resist making these truffle pops even more minty. The inside is thick, almost like fudge, and the whole truffle has a rich mint chocolate flavor.
- 1 box Thin Mints
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 package Dark Cocoa Mint Candy Melts
- 6″ lollipop sticks
Place Thin Mints into a food processor and process until they become fine crumbs. Add softened cream cheese to food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together into a ball. Roll dough into small balls and place in fridge for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, melt the candy melts in the microwave or a double boiler. Once candy melts are smooth, remove Thin Mint truffles from fridge. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in melted chocolate, then insert into middle of truffle. Dip the entire truffle into the melted chocolate, removing quickly. Let dry and decorate by drizzling with melted green candy melts if desired.
