Chocolate Dipped Lemon Oreo Ice Cream Bars have the crisp, tart taste of lemon all covered in chocolate. The sprinkles make them...
This would be one of those recipes that fall into the “stupid easy” category. You know, the kind that require minimal effort and sometimes (like in this case) use some pre-made ingredients. But, this recipe is also stupid delicious, and one of the best lemon desserts I’ve ever tried (though this one is probably equally delicious, but requires significantly more effort)!
This does require a lot of freezing time, as you pretty much have to pop it back in the freezer for a couple hours after each step, but there is barely any actual hands-on time.
It starts with a lemon Oreo base that is just TWO ingredients: lemon Oreos and melted butter. They’re ground together in a food processor, then pressed into a square dish. You have to allow it to firm up in the freezer a bit, but then that is topped with a pint of softened lemon gelato.
You could totally use another flavor here if you want, maybe strawberry? Then they’d have a strawberry-lemonade kinda flavor! Heck, you could even swap the lemon Oreos out for any kind you want and make whole new flavor profiles. Feel free to get creative!
After another trip to the freezer, you’re ready to dunk ’em in the melted chocolate of your choice. I tend to prefer the white chocolate with the lemon, but go with what tastes best to you!
Naturally, I had to finish these off with some cute confetti and star sprinkles because, like I’ve said before, “Sprinkles make everything better!” Depending on the sprinkles you use, you could make them fit any occasion or holiday.
These got two thumbs up from my taste-testers, and people actually refused to believe that they were insanely easy to make---always a great sign!
