These sweets are one of the simplest to make and require only a few ingredients. Ideal choice for any occasion - as everyday treat, holiday special sweets or even a amazing food gift. Let's check how to make these creamy zesty lemon truffles.
The base of these lemon truffles is white chocolate ganache made from white chocolate and whipping cream with addition of some butter and lemon zest.
So, first chop chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat cream, butter and finely grated lemon zest until simmering point then pour over the chocolate.
Stir until completely melted and you get an amazing smooth texture. The mixture need to be cooled in the fridge for at least 2 hours, so take this in consideration when making the truffles.
Once the mixture is ready, scoop mounds and roll into balls and place them on a tray lined with aluminium foil. Place them in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Our lemon truffles are coated into white chocolate which gives them amazing crunch coating. For doing this, broke white chocolate bar into smaller pieces and melt on the "bain marie".
Add a few drops of yellow food colouring to accent the colour - you can skip this step if you don't have the colouring.
Once chocolate is melted, leave to cool for a minute. Drop prepared truffles into the chocolate and lift out with a fork. Place them on a tray lined with aluminium foil or baking paper. Sprinkle each truffles with some finely grated lemon zest for decoration. Place back in the fridge to set, until ready to serve or give away.
It's the best to keep the truffles in a storage container between sheets of baking paper and store in the fridge for about 1 week. For the best texture and flavour take out from the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Freeze for up to 2 months, then defrost overnight in the fridge.
