I have made this recipe TONS of times. I absolutely love it. Last time, my dad asked for me to make this with lemon Oreos and they turned out amazing, too. I'm not sure but I think you could probably make these with whatever Oreo flavor you choose, it just takes a little guesswork with the number of Oreos to use. Amazing recipe, and I'd definitely recommend this for a nice cool summer treat or just a dessert for any party!
