24 truffles


  • cooking spray

  • 1 (18.4 ounce) package brownie mix

  • cup vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 (4.6 ounce) package creme de menthe thins (such as Andes®)

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • green and while candy sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a glass 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine brownie mix, oil, water, and eggs in a large bowl. Stir 50 strokes with a spoon. Spread into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 28 to 31 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

  4. Break up warm brownies into a large bowl. Roughly chop mint thins and add to the bowl; stir until well combined, allowing the brownies' heat to slightly melt the chocolate.

  5. Form mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls, pressing firmly so they hold together. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

  6. Combine chocolate chips and oil in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.

  7. Dip each brownie ball into the melted chocolate and turn with a fork to coat. Lift and allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place dipped truffles onto a tray lined with waxed or parchment paper. Top with sprinkles, if desired.

  8. Refrigerate for 5 minutes (or let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes) until chocolate has set.

Cook's Note:

You can use chopped Snickers(R) or OREO(R) cookies instead of mint candies.
