Lemon OREO Truffles





 In preparation of the Sip & See Shopping Spree tomorrow {come shop my closet, details here!} I decided to make a few sweet treats for my guests. I've recently discovered the lemon flavored OREOs, and oh my goodness, they are amazing. I can actually just eat the recommended serving size of two {measly} cookies because they're the right amount of sweet and tart to truly cleanse your palate.

After tasting them, I was reminded how delicious the regular "vanilla" OREO truffles were that I made last year for CJM's birthday--they tasted just like cake batter, dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles! They were delicious. So why wouldn't the lemon ones be just as good?

OREO truffles are one of my go-to baked goods because they require no baking, three main ingredients, and just a little bit of time! I used two packs of cookies because I wanted to make a lot of truffles, and found that two bars of cream cheese were a little too much for me; I like my truffles just a bit drier. I also will share my pro-tip for working with white chocolate: Gulf Wax. My great grandmother always melted a bit into her dark chocolate dipping sauce for peanut butter balls at Christmas to make them shiny, and I've found that it thins out the sometimes difficult to work with white chocolate.










Lemon OREO Truffles
Makes roughly six dozen

2 packages of Lemon OREO cookies
2 8 oz. bars of Cream Cheese
2 bags of white chocolate chips
1/4 bar of Gulf Wax
Sprinkles, optional

Using a blender or food processor, pulsate the cookies, creme and all, until completely ground. Mix ground cookies with two bars of cream cheese {or a bar and a half if you prefer a drier mix} using a stand mixer. Roll tablespoon size balls of mixture, placing on wax paper. Refrigerate dough for ten minutes if not rolling well. Freeze for 15 minutes. While freezing, melt chocolate and wax in double boiler on stove. Once melted, dip individual truffles into white chocolate and place back on wax. Top with sprinkles immediately. Store in the refrigerator up to a week, or until you devour them all...whichever comes first!

Pinterest has a lot of other fun flavor combinations of OREO truffles that I can't wait to try, like peppermint at Christmas! Share this recipe with your followers by pinning the image below!
