White Chocolate & Citrus Truffles

For my birthday, I decided to treat myself to some good chocolate for a change. Mediocre chocolate can really take its toll! Ask any chocoholic. For me, there's nothing more satisfying than chocolate truffles. Especially knowing you're actually getting more out of your chocolate by adding to it.

This recipe is mouth watering! The rich white chocolate, the hint of citrus and the tingle from the chilli at the end. It's truly wonderful!

Like a lot of the recipes I post, this is versatile. You can always trade the zest for a shot of your favourite liqueur (I'd recommend an amaretto or a banana liqueur). They work great with the white chocolate. Don't forget to add something extra to your truffles. As little as some crushed nuts or a sprinkle of zest, it will make them that little bit more special. I will also be posting some more recipes of my favourite truffles so stay tuned for them.


Ingredients:                                                                                             (Makes 20-25 truffles)

250g chopped white chocolate
125g cream whipping or double
10g unsalted butter
1/2 lemon zested (Optional.)
1/2 orange zested (Optional.)
1 shot flavoured liqueur (Optional.)

125g melted white chocolate

  • Boil the cream, the butter and the flavourings if you're using them.
  • Once the cream mixture has started to boil, pour over the chopped chocolate.
  • Whisk until smooth. Then leave in a fridge to cool and set.
  • Once set divide the ganache into sized balls. Rolling in your hands to create a round ball (cold hands are preferable so not to melt the ganache).
  • Melt the chocolate for coating. 
  • Dip the ganache balls into the chocolate and let the residual drip off before placing on parchment paper.
  • Either roll using a fork to create a spiky outside or leave to dry smooth. 
  • If drying smooth, add some garnish to the top when the coating is still wet to add flavour and extra appeal.
