Christmas Lemon Bark

Christmas Lemon Bark
It’s just 3 days before Christmas and you’re trying to figure out a quick way to use up the rest of that almond bark you used to make chocolate peanut clusters and dipped pretzels?  Thank goodness you stopped by today because Christmas Lemon Bark is the perfect solution!

If you’re a fan of essential oils, it’s very likely that one of the first oils you purchased was Lemon Oil (Citrus Limon).  This oil has a multitude of uses but for todays purposes, Lemon Bark is on the Christmas treat menu.

Just be sure the lemon oil you have is approved to be taken internally.  I know there are several great companies out there but I use and love doTERRA Essential Oil products.

I always have leftover almond bark from Christmas treat making.  This is how I used it up this year and it only took about 5 or 10 minutes!

In keeping with the tradition of Christmas music to cook by, I have a little nontraditional Deck the Halls for your cooking entertainment!

Christmas Lemon Bark

I had half a pound of almond bark,

which I melted in the microwave as instructed on the package.  I just do about 30 seconds at a time stirring between each microwave session.  You could also use a double boiler, or put it in the conventional oven at a low setting.  The microwave is faster though.

Add the zest of one lemon,

and 4 drops of Lemon Oil.

Stir together and spread out on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper.

Put the cookie sheet in a cool area till it hardens.  I use my enclosed breezeway since it isn’t heated, it’s pretty cool out there this time of year.

Then break the hardened Lemon Bark into pieces.  Store in a Christmas tin or Tupperware – like container.

The mild lemon flavor gives your taste buds a break from the usual peppermint bark most people think of this time of year.
