Chocolate Mint Truffles

As hard as I've been trying to come up with something clever to say about these adorable, and equally delicious, little truffles, I just can't seem to come up with anything.  They do make fantastic bribes, though.  My 13 year old bribed his friend with them.  For what, I have no clue, but apparently the bribe was successful. :)

1 (10 ounce) package chocolate mint cookies (Grasshoppers, Thin Mints, etc)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (11.5 ounce) bag green mint chips
1/3 cup white chocolate chips for drizzling

Place chocolate mint cookies in the bowl of a food processor and process until they are fine crumbs.  Add cream cheese and process until well combined.  Roll mixture into small balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Freeze balls for 2 to 3 hours.  When the balls are frozen and ready to dip, place green mint chips in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring after each 30 seconds, until melted.  Poke the frozen truffle with a toothpick and dip into the melted mint chips.  Lightly tap on the edge of the bowl to remove excess melted coating.  Place dipped truffles on parchment paper and cover the hole from the dipping toothpick with a little melted mint coating.  Once all the truffles have been dipped, melt white chocolate chips and drizzle over the truffles.
