"With white chocolate, it's superb," according to Safrafraya. "Don't make the chocolate coating too thick because then it overpowers the Oreo itself. My all time favorite dessert."

"I made them with mint Oreos for my husband's birthday on St. Patrick's Day," says Grace Fitzjerrell Lueras. "I had the lemon Oreo dipped in white chocolate at a baby shower a couple of weeks ago, and understood why people love these Oreo truffles."
