Mint Truffle Pops
Bakerella's Blog. This is my chocolate-fied version of her yummy, minty creation. Wow, are these delish! And they're the easiest thing going. No baking whatsoever. I promise!
You basically crush mint oreos in a food processer, smash 'em up with some cream cheese, roll them in balls and dip them in chocolate. The flavor and texture is divine! Now the wheels are turning, and I'm wondering what other cookie-coating combos I can try.
While you're at Bakerella's blog, be sure and check out her Red Velvet cake balls. These do require some baking, but hear me when I tell ya, your efforts will be rewarded. To die for!
PS: Paul came up with the foam ball stand idea. Just cut a styrofoam ball in half and poke your dipped treats in for the perfect place to let them set up.
PPS: I bought the popsicle sticks at JoAnns.
PPPS: To make the green dots and stripes, I added a few drops of green food coloring to melted white chocolate. I do NOT recommend this, though. My velvety smooth chocolate turned to a thick, lumpy mess after I added the food coloring, resulting in the globby look of the green decorations. A better way to go would be to melt green candy discs, made expressly for that purpose. Live and learn.
PPPPS: Be sure and scroll down. I posted twice today!
OK, I'm officially out of P's. Time to sign off.
