Prep Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 24 truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 9x9 pan brownies (I used my favorite boxed mix to keep it simple)
  • 5 ounces creme de menthe chocolate (otherwise known as Andes)
  • 7 ounces melting chocolate (Ghiradelli brand)
  • 8 ounces almond bark vanilla, divided
  • green food coloring

Instructions

  • If you haven't baked your brownies yet, do those first. Let them cool completely before making the truffles.
  • Once the brownies are cooled, break apart using your hands. This is a fun task to do with kids! Set aside.
  • Melt 5 ounces of creme de menthe chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds. If it needs more time, microwave for another 15 seconds. Add broken brownie pieces to the melted mint chocolate. Combine with a spatula. Roll dough into 24 even truffles of about 1 1/2 tablespoons. Place them on a large baking sheet and set aside to set.
  • In a small bowl, melt the melting chocolate in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir to help the melting process. If it needs more time, place in microwave for another 30 seconds.
  • Grab one truffle and dip into the melted chocolate to coat it completely. Using a fork, scoop it out of the chocolate and let the excess chocolate drip off. Place back on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining truffles. Let them sit for 5 minutes to finishing setting. If you did not use melting chocolate, it will take longer for your chocolate to set, so place in the refrigerator to help it along.
  • Melt almond bark in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for about 20-30 seconds. Place half of the melted almond bark into a ziplock sandwich bag. The easiest way to do this is to place the ziplock bag into a small cup and have the edges wrap around the outside of the cup like a trash bag does on a trash can. Then, pour the bark into the bag and zip. For the remaining melted bark in the bowl, add 1-2 drops of green food coloring and mix. Place into a separate ziplock sandwich bag and zip.
  • Cut a small corner off of the ziplock bag with green almond bark. Drizzle over the truffles until all is used. Cut a smaller corner off of the ziplock bag with the white almond bark. Drizzle a little bit over the truffles to give a little bit of white color for added decoration. I think it looks best when you use only a little of the white, but decorate however you see fit!
  • Let them harden up before storing, about 15 minutes.
