Are you ready for some truffles?? I can’t seem to make enough truffles to make everyone happy around here. Seems no sooner do I get them photographed – everyone is begging for more. That’s where these Rainbow Mint Oreo Truffles come in.
So we have been buying the mint Oreo’s for months now. I have been meaning to make this recipe for a long time- minus the rainbow sprinkles. But then people keep eating said Oreo’s & back to the store I go. So now that we are close enough to St’ Patrick’s Day
Mint Truffles Recipe
I figured it would be great to use those Oreo’s to make these Rainbow Mint Oreo Truffles. Rainbows are just so happy – then you add the flavor of mint & chocolate – you just can’t help but smile.
Bring these to your St. Patrick’s Day party – how fun!!
Mint & chocolate – it’s a wonderful combo. I love this time of year because it gives me an excuse to pair them more frequently.

Can you use peppermint extract in place of the spearmint essential oil?
Gina Kleinworth says
Hi Jessica – for these, if you are using the mint Oreos – it’s okay to omit the additional spearmint flavoring if you would like. You can add about 1/8 tsp peppermint extract – however it can be pretty strong & compete with the flavor already in the Oreos. I wouldn’t recommend any more than that for this recipe.
Thank you! I have a little experience with peppermint extract, I was making a chocolate peppermint bark over the holidays and accidentally spilled waaayyyyy more than I was supposed to into the mixture. After eating it I actually felt like I had just brushed my teeth! Lol 🙂
