Mint Chocolate Chip Truffles
Mint Chocolate Chip is a favorite flavor combination of mine and these little mint chocolate chip truffles are way too addicting. A creamy mint filling dipped in good quality dark chocolate makes a perfect indulgence.
Servings: 36 truffles
- 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 6 tablespoons butter room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon mint extract or 1/8 teaspoon mint oil
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 12 ounces dark chocolate for dipping
Cream together cream cheese, butter and mint extract until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Gently stir in chocolate chips. Chill the filling for at least 3 hours.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on parchment paper. The filling can get sticky. Pop it back in the fridge to chill a bit more if it gets too sticky to work with. Chill the truffles for at least 3 hours.
Gently melt the chocolate over low heat in a double boiler or in the microwave for 10 second intervals. Dip each of the chilled truffles in the chocolate and let cool completely on parchment paper. Store in the fridge. Will last a week in the refrigerator or several weeks in the freezer.
