Have you tried the new Lemon Oreos?  Oh my goodness, they are SO yummy! I’m just slightly obsessed with all things lemon, so I was really excited to see them. My favorite way to eat Oreos is actually when I make them into Oreo Truffles! When I saw the new lemon flavor, I knew exactly what I wanted to make…Lemon Oreo Truffles. They did not disappoint! Dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with lemon zest, they’re perfect for spring and Easter!

They really could not be any easier to make, and they have just three ingredients!  Oreos (yummy), cream cheese (yummy), and white chocolate (yummy).  See where I’m heading with this?  How could they NOT be good?

These are perfect for all spring menus, parties, and gatherings, including Easter.  Wrap them up in cute packaging and give to friends and neighbors–who wouldn’t love to find these on their porch?

Tip:  To dip the oreos in chocolate, using two forks works really well, or I love this (*affiliate link) Wilton Dipping Scoop!!

  1. I’ve wanted to try Oreo truffles for a long time and finally attempted today! How do you crush your oreos? I tried the blender but it didn’t work so well (maybe because my blender is really old!). And what do you use to mix in cream cheese. I have a KitchenAid…maybe that would have worked better? Thanks!!

    1. I know a lot of people that use a food processor, but I actually use a rolling pin. Lol. I don’t mind if my pieces aren’t super tiny, because when I add the cream cheese, they get pretty smooshed. I think a KitchenAid could work to mix them–I need to try it too. :) I actually go the old-fashioned route here as well, and just use a fork. I always make sure my cream cheese is soft, and it makes it much easier. If you try the KitchenAid, let me know how it goes! xoxo

        1. They don’t have to be for small amounts of time (during a party, while you’re serving, packaging and delivering, etc.) but I usually do just to be on the safe side.
