Cooking tips

You can find the full instructions in the recipe card below, but here are a few tips to help you get started.

Prepare a cookie sheet with a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper (of course, placing the wax paper directly on the counter works too).

Melt the butter by adding it to a medium microwaveable mixing bowl.

Add the lemon cake mix to the melted butter then mix in both the lemon juice and sugar.

Continue to mix until dough begins to form.

Roll lemon truffle dough into cake pop size balls, approximately 1 ½ inch balls.

Pour the remaining sugar in a shallow dish then roll each lemon truffle in the sugar until they are completely coated.

Place Lemon Truffles on prepared pan then chill them until they are set.

I keep my Lemon Truffles chilled in the refrigerator. Before serving them I allow them to sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes to soften them just a little bit.
