Lemon Oreo Truffles

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. Oh my goodness!! These look absolutely amazing. I am such a huge lemon fan and of course I can never say no to oreos! Sharing on social media!

    1. They don’t have to be if you’re eating them right away. I would keep them in the fridge until serving or taking them to someone!

  2. 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

    2. I use a food processor to grind up the oreos fine. Then I put the cream cheese right in with the oreos and process again. Works perfectly.

    1. It really depends on how big you make your truffles–small, medium, or large. I can usually get between 15-20 truffles per batch.

        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.

  3. 5 stars
    These are wonderful. I did have a problem with the white chocolate hardening up after coating only about six balls. Reheating didn’t help. Any suggestions?

    1. yes! If you add a tiny bit of vegetable oil (ONLY if you’re using white chocolate chips, not melting chocolate), it prevents the chocolate from hardening as quickly. Start with about 1 tsp per cup of chocolate. It will make the chocolate take a little longer to harden, but it really helps to get through the dipping process!

  4. These were awesome! I did find the batter to be quite moist and when I took them out of the freezer, they got very soft soon after I started dipping. They taste great, but the filling is very very moist. Is that the way they should be? Thanks!

    1. Hi! Mine was pretty moist, but still held together. I would add more crumbs to your mix–that will thicken it.

  5. Hi I’m getting ready to make a double batch of these and was wondering how long I can store them in the refrigerator – a week or less time ??? My party is Saturday and today is Sunday – thank you

    1. Hi, Vera! The most I’ve stored them in the refrigerator is about 5 days, but I think you could squeeze a week!
