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. 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 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.
**Note: I used food grade Young Living Essential Oils Spearmint Essential Oil
