Lemon Truffles Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 cup white chocolate chips

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup heavy cream

Zest from 2 lemons

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 cups powdered sugar

Optional: A few drops of yellow food coloring for that extra pop of color

Instructions:

Prepare the Chocolate Mixture: In a heatproof bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and butter. Set aside.

Heat the Cream: In a small saucepan, gently heat the heavy cream until it just begins to simmer. Be careful not to let it boil.

Combine and Melt: Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and butter mixture. Wait for a minute to let the chocolate soften, then stir until smooth and glossy.

Flavor It: Stir in the lemon zest and lemon juice, blending well. For a vibrant touch, add a few drops of yellow food coloring, if using.

Add Sugar: Gradually mix in the powdered sugar until the mixture is smooth.

Chill: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours, or until the mixture is firm enough to handle.

Shape the Truffles: Once chilled, scoop and roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls. Dust each truffle with powdered sugar to prevent sticking.

Final Chill: Place the truffles on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.
