Andes Mint Cookie Dough Truffles Recipe for St. Patrick's Day or Christmas www.wishesndishes.com

Who else is enjoying the two feet of freshly fallen snow in their city?  No?  Me neither.  Spring feels like it’s lightyears away, especially when getting hit with major blizzards when we’re well into the month of March.  Just when I was starting to see green when I looked out the window :)  On the “bright” side, the Weather Channel was broadcasting live in Rochester yesterday due to the epic blizzard – pretty exciting! 

I’m not usually a chocolate and mint person, but for some reason I love them together on special occasions and for the holidays.  St. Patrick’s day is perfect for anything green or MINTY!  So, when I saw these Andes mint cookie dough truffles from Shugary Sweets I just KNEW I had to try them out (she has an awesome blog if you haven’t checked it out yet). These super easy truffles are no-bake and a delicious combination of mint and chocolate…..and you can never go wrong with cookie dough, especially in truffle form!

    With the exception of mint chocolate chip ice cream, I rarely eat mint flavored anything except during Christmas! haha So strange since it’s not that I don’t enjoy it! These truffles look awesome – cookie dough truffles are so hard to resist!

    These are so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! We were forecasted to get 10 inches of snow but only got about 3. I was so relieved. But I’d really like it all to melt like yesterday and be 60 and sunny.

    • March 13, 2014 at 6:31 PM #

      We were supposed to get two feet but apparently “only” ended up with 16!
