Mint Oreo Truffles: St. Patrick’s Day Treats

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

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!
