Lemon Ice Candy

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 bag lemon drops
1 package almond bark

Instructions

Take the lemon drops and place them in a Ziploc bag. Double bag them. Take the side of a hammer and smash the lemon drops into small pieces. (Don't try to use your food processor for this step, or you will be buying a new one soon!) It is best to do this on a hard counter surface or outside on concrete. Once lemon drops are crushed, melt almond bark according to package instructions. I use the microwave for this step. Mix lemon drops into almond bark and pour onto waxed paper lined jelly roll pan. Allow to cool. Break into small pieces and store in an airtight container. Delicious!
