It’s that time of year – Girl Scout Cookies are among us again. Everywhere you turn, there are Girls Scouts (or their parents) pushing those addictive cookies. You can’t escape it!
This year, however, I was strong and didn’t end up buying a ton of cookies like I normally do. In fact, I didn’t buy any at all. I’m pretty proud of myself.
But I’ve still been getting a pretty strong craving for Thin Mints so I decided to do something about it. I’ve been wanting to make brownie truffles for the longest time. They’re kind of like cake pops (or cake balls) but made with brownies instead of cake. With my craving for mint chocolate hitting pretty hard, I decided to make mint brownie truffles.
These mint brownie truffles have the shape of a classic chocolate truffle, the texture of brownies, and the flavor of a Thin Mint. Could you imagine a better mash-up?! Plus, the colors make it the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat. Aren’t they the cutest?!
These truffles are super simple to make, too. All you do is bake a 9×9 pan of your favorite brownies, break into little pieces, add melted mint chocolate, roll into balls, and dip into melted chocolate. That’s it!
For the brownies, I was lazy and decided to bake my favorite boxed brownie mix instead of making some from scratch. But that’s the beauty of this recipe – it doesn’t need to be overly-complicated to make amazing mint brownie truffles.
Here are a few more tips to ensure that these truffles come out perfectly:
- Make sure the brownies are completely cool before trying to make the truffles. If they are too warm, they won’t want to form into balls, which will make it almost impossible to coat in chocolate.
- Speaking of chocolate coating, you’re going to want to use melting chocolate for dipping. Melting chocolate dries perfectly solid without refrigerating, whereas baking chocolate (like chocolate chips) will never get fully solid after it’s been melted. Melting chocolate is a game-changer, guys. Here’s the melting chocolate that I used.
- When you’re drizzling the white and green chocolates over the truffles, you don’t need a fancy piping bag. I simply used a ziplock bag and sniped off the corner.
Alright guys! That’s all you need to make these decadent little truffles. I hope you love them!
