Mint Oreo Truffles

Another pre-scheduled dessert post...this is a good one.

Guess who made a dessert in September and has decided to blog about it now in May?


I made these when my mom and dad were visiting last September and they helped me eat them all.  I just found the pictures on my computer and figured better late than never.  (It's never too late for Oreos.)

While my parents were here, they did a lot of sight-seeing on their own while I was at work.  I did drive us out to the Matanuska Glacier one day though.

That is as far as I'd let them get to the glacier.  Apparently, you can go walk on it.  *SHUDDER*.  Nothankyou.  I will never get close enough to a glacier to fall in.  It's a personal rule.

Let's not talk about glaciers anymore. Oreos are much more interesting.

I must say that despite my deep-seeded love for chocolate/peanut butter, mint Oreos are my favorite kind of Oreos.  I imagine, however, that you could create these with any kind of Oreo.  Oh, the possibilities.

Mint Oreo Truffles

1 box cake mix (I used Pillsbury Triple Chocolate Fudge.)
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil (I used half applesauce/half oil.)
3 eggs
1 can buttercream frosting (I used buttercream to keep it from being too chocolate-heavy.)
1 package Mint Oreos, crushed, and divided 
1 package almond bark (I had the green that I bought on clearance way back when, but vanilla or chocolate would work.)

Bake the cake according to package directions.  The ingredients above are what I added.  The ingredient amount may depend on the brand of cake mix.

Let the cake cool, then crumble it up.  Stir in the can of frosting and half the crushed Oreos until you have a thick dough.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Melt the candy melts in the microwave.  It will take about 2 minutes total.  I used 45 second intervals.

Dip the frozen truffles into the candy coating and then place on wax paper to set.  Decorate with the other half of the crushed Oreos.  You have to be quick, dipping just a few at a time, because candy coating hardens really fast.  I like to store these in the freezer because I think they taste best that way.
