- 38-40 Mint Oreo Cookies
- 6 oz cream cheese, softened
- 14 oz mint dark chocolate (I used Lindt Excellence - Intense Mint Dark Chocolate)
- 1/2 teaspoon oil
- White and green Candy Melts, optional
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
- Put Oreo cookies in the food processor and crumble them.
- In a large dish put Oreo crumbs and cream cheese and mix with spatula until well combined.
- Roll the balls with your hands (about 30 balls)
- Put them on the wax paper. Chill for 20 minutes.
- While the balls are chilling, melt mint dark chocolate according to the instruction given on the package. Add oil and mix.
- Put the chocolate into a deeper dish, so that it would be easier to dip the balls.
- Take the balls out of the fridge. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and make sure that they are completely covered with it. A fork can help to rotate them.
- Take the balls out with a fork, shake them and wait for the extra chocolate to drain. Place them on the wax paper. Use toothpick to take the ball off the fork.
- Repeat the same with the rest of the balls.
- For decoration, melt white and green candy melts and drizzle over the balls.
