Mint Oreo Truffles: St. Patrick’s Day Treats

Welcome to Day 14 of our St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun! We have had so much fun sharing decorating ideas, crafts, desserts, printables and of course…St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes!

Everyone loves Oreos! And these Mint Oreo Truffles couldn’t be easier…and delicious!!

So here’s the deal my friends…I’m not crazy about mint and I don’t really like cream cheese…but these Mint Oreo Truffles were AMAZING! Simple to make, only 2 ingredients plus the candy coating and I had the whole batch done in about 15 minutes {not counting the freezing time}.

I’ve made Cookie Dough Truffles {and shared a video on how to dip them}, but not ever tried Oreo Truffles before. These will definitely be added to my list of holiday treats!

The original recipe for Oreo Truffles came from A Southern Fairytale, she made them for Christmas. I think they are perfect for any holiday, simply change up the colors and sprinkles and you have a delicious treat!

    I dont do a whole lot of baking so this is going to appear to be a stupid question. What are candy melts and where do I find them? Thanks~!

    • CupcakeLady says:

      Hi Christine, candy melts are made by Wilton, you can find many different colors in the cake decorating aisles at Walmart {party section} or hobby stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. And if you don’t bake a lot…this is the perfect treat for you, no baking required! ;-)
