Oreo Lemon Drops and a Giveaway

My family has a new obsession and they're called Lemon Twist Oreo's! I don't usually purchase store bought cookies or much dessert for that matter, but I LOVE lemon in any way, shape or form lately. So when I saw these limited edition cookies at my local grocery store a few weeks ago, I just had to try them and they didn't disappoint!

I knew I wanted to make a version of Oreo Truffles with these as soon as I tasted one. I even added some extra lemon flavoring in the melted chocolate for extra lemony-ness (I know it's not a word!). These Oreo Lemon Drops were incredible and very decadent. My personal preference is to keep these frozen and only pull out what you're going to eat immediately.

Oreo Lemon Drops
Prep Time: 30                                                    Yield: 24
Refrigeration Time: 1 hour 30 minutes            Servings: 1 each
Total Time: 2 hours
  • 1 pkg. Lemon Twist Oreos
  • 4 oz. Fat Free Cream Cheese
  • 12oz. White Chocolate (I used Ghiradelli)
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Extract
  • 6 drops Yellow Food Coloring
  • Canola Oil, if needed
  1. Add the cookies to a food processor and pulse until the cookies are crumb-like. 
  2. Next, add in the cream cheese and pulse again; stopping the machine to scrape down the sides before pulsing again until it's all mixed through. 
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; then carefully remove the blade from the machine.
  4. Form 24 balls, approximate size 1" in diameter, and place them the parchment paper. When they're all made, place the entire baking sheet in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow them to chill. This will allow the melted chocolate to adhere better. 
  5. Prepare the melted chocolate five minutes prior to dipping the cookie mixture into the chocolate by melting the chocolate over a double boiler. If the chocolate is too thick, remove from the heat and add a few drops of oil and stir well. 
  6. Mix in the lemon extract and food coloring and stir well; then dip each ball into the chocolate using a spoon and place back on the baking sheet. When the chocolate has started to harden on the balls, drizzle the extra melted chocolate over the top; then place the Oreo Lemon Drops back into the freezer for at least 1 hour until ready to serve. 
It's ok to get messy when you're working with chocolate!
