READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by evelynathens

These are so good. Just the right touch of mint. There's a 2 hour refrigeration period for the chocolate mixture to become firm enough to shape. Other than that, they're quick to make.

Very easy. If you have no cream, cream cheese works great. I used 4 oz. of it and it was so tasty!
