My Favorite Girl Scout Cookies--in Truffle Form

Hello! I hope I find you enjoying your Tuesday--it is a beautiful day down here in the South. What is your weather like? Snowy? Rainy? Well, whether it is sunshine, snow or rain I have the perfect treat for you! Everyone knows the end is near...and then you may ask "wait, what end?". Well my friend, it is almost the end of Girl Scout Cookie season. My waist and buttocks are looking forward to this tragic ending, as for my taste buds--let's just say: too soon, too soon. But anyway I have taken a survey of what people's favorite girls scout cookies are (disclaimer: I only asked family and friends so this is totally unofficial). But anyway, I found that Thin Mints were first and foremost the most popular amongst my loved ones. And then coming close in second were the infamous Samoas (I am well aware that they are now called Caramel Delights but I refuse to call them that--thank you very much). But anyway, today I will share with you two recipes for Thin Mint Truffles and Samoa Truffles! Here we go:

Caramel Delight Truffles


  • 1 package caramel delights (only reason I used Keebler is because Girl Scouts are in school during the day, therefore I could not hunt one down for cookies)
  • 1/3 bar fat free cream cheese
  • Chocolate Candy Coating
  • Shredded Sweetened Coconut

First, get out your food processor and secure it with the large blade. Dump the whole package of cookies into the food processor.

Process the cookies until completely smooth and all crumbs. Next cut cream cheese into small pieces and place in food processor. 

Next process cream cheese and crushed cookies until making a thick, crumbly like mixture. It will get stuck and the processor will stop, so take spatular and unstick sides and bottom of the bowl. And continue to process until fully mixed together.

Next, what you're going to do is take about a thumb print amount of mixture and form into round balls with hands. And place on a pan.

Next heat chocolate candy coating in microwave by directions on back of package. Once melted, take spoon, dip in chocolate, and drizzle over balls of cookie mixture. Before chocolate dries on top of truffles, sprinkle shredded coconut over all of them.

Once finished, pop tray into refrigerator for an hour and then enjoy!!


Thin Mint Truffles


  • 1 box thin mints
  • 1/2 bar fat free cream cheese
  • Chocolate sprinkles
Directions: DO THE EXACT SAME THING but instead of coconut, add the sprinkles!

And the last step...ENJOY!!!

See you tomorrow.
Love you long time.
