  • 1 cup White chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp Heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon extract
  • 2-3 drops Yellow food coloring, optional
  • 1/4 cup Powdered sugar


  1. Place the white chocolate chips in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a pan, combine the butter and zest and heat until the butter melts.
  3. Stir in the heavy cream and scald (bring just before boiling). Then, pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve over the white chocolate chips. Add the lemon extract and food coloring, and mix until smooth.
  4. Cover and refrigerate the mixture until it is firm enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
  5. Scoop heaping teaspoonfuls of the mixture and form into balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar.
  6. Refrigerate the truffles for at least 30 minutes before eating.
