This recipe yields 2 dozen truffles:

INGREDIENTS
1 package of Lemon Oreos
8 oz. brick of full-fat cream cheese – softened
1 Tablespoon solid shortening plus 1 Tablespoon
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup Wilton yellow chocolate melts
Garnish: sugar crystals (optional)
Zest of 2 lemons

DIRECTIONS

1. Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and set it aside.
2. Finely crush the Lemon Oreos. I used a food processor but you could also place them in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
3. Place the crushed Oreos into the refrigerator and chill for 15 minutes. This will make it easier to handle.

4. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and crushed Oreos. Mix with your hands until well incorporated.

5. Form the mixture into 24 one-inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet.

6. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes. This will help the chocolate coating to “set” faster.
7. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1 Tablespoon solid shortening for 40 seconds or until melted. Add the white chocolate chips and stir continuously until melted.
8. Dip 12 of the truffles into the melted white chocolate and place them on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet. Immediately garnish with lemon zest on top before the chocolate “sets.”
9. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1 Tablespoon solid shortening for 40 seconds or until melted. Add the yellow chocolate melts and stir continuously until melted.
10. Dip the remaining 12 balls into the melted yellow chocolate and place them on the cookie sheet. Immediately garnish with lemon zest and sugared crystals (optional).

11. Wait 15 minutes for the chocolate to set.
12. ENJOY or chill until ready to serve.
