I love lemon treats!  Lemon cookies, lemon cake, lemon yogurt covered almonds…  LOL.  When it came to L is for Lemon in the Cooking with kids series I could not wait to try a yummy lemon recipe.  Since we love our oreo truffles, or cookie balls, I thought we would give it a try and make Lemon Truffles.  This was such a fun process to figure out how we were going to make them.  They turned out AMAZING, if I do say so myself.  So that I could get some neutral feedback I went around gifting a few of these treats to my favorite people.  They all gave them 2 thumbs up.  Yay, for a new yummy lemon recipe to keep on hand.

Ingredients/what we used:

 

10 sugar cookies

 

white chocolate or almond bark with a melting trayLog House Candiquik All Natural Vanilla Coating – 16 oz this is my favorite one to buy because that tray makes melting it so easy.

 

cream cheese

 

canola oil or cooking spray

 

colored sugar – we made yellow

 

Young Living lemon essential oil – not all oils are good to ingest but I trust Young Living Essential Oil Lemon 15 ML

How to make/what we did:

 

I left the cream cheese out to soften at room temperature.  Once soft I added it to a bowl. The kids broke up 10 sugar cookies in a bowl.

I added 3 drops of Young Living essential oil.  Now let the kids mix it all up.  Both of my older kids took turns mixing up the ingredients.

Roll the mixture into small balls and place on parchment paper.  Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Before I took them out of the fridge I took my white chocolate and put 4 squares in the melting tray.  I added a little canola oil to it and melted for 1 minute.  Now we dipped the balls into the chocolate and placed them back on the tray.

We took our yellow colored sugar and sprinkled on top.  Now place back in fridge until hard.

Now for the fun part, taste testing our creation.  2 of the 3 kids loved them.   And of course I loved them!  The taste was heavenly.

I look forward to making more fun treats with the kids.  These lemon truffles were a perfect summer treat for us.
