White Chocolate Lemon Truffles

This is a dessert I made a few weeks ago for a family party along with the Homemade Milky Way Bars. I found it at Kitchen Simplicity. Head over there and spend some time drooling over the beautiful food photography and recipes. This only made 21 little truffles for me, so a small batch. Love the lemon scent and taste.

White Chocolate Lemon Truffles
1 c. white chocolate
5 T. unsalted butter
3 T. heavy cream
Pinch salt
1 t. lemon extract
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Melt chocolate, butter and cream over a double boiler or in a microwave. Stir until smooth.

Stir in salt and extract. Allow to cool slightly before covering with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.

  6. Seriously? How do you stay skinny?! I think I ask you this EVERY time you put up a yummer recipe!!!
