Delicate lime truffle covered in white chocolate
A few weeks ago I tried a piece of chocolate from a lovely box of assorted chocolates. Lime truffle covered with white chocolate. I had never tried that combo before. It was nothing less than amazing.
So I wanted to re-create it.
I used the same lime truffle as I used for my valentines chocolates from the other day. Now since the truffle is covered with white chocolate, these are very sweet, but they are still lovely and delicate.
150 g of white chocolate
1 dl of cream
25 g of butter
300 g of white chocolate
Zest from 1 lime
Start by placing your chocolate molds in the freezer. The chocolate will harden faster this way.
Melt the white chocolate in a bain marie and brush the molds, making sure you cover the edges – so there are no holes where the filling could spill out. Keep about ¼ of the chocolate for the ‘lids’ later. Place in the freezer or fridge again.
In a saucepan, heat the butter and cream. Remove from the heat. Break the chocolate into small pieces and add to the pan. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Finally add the lime zest. Let it cool in the fridge for about two hours before filling the chocolate molds – but only to about 2 mm from the top.
Finally add a lid to the chocolates by filling the molds with the remaining melted white chocolate. Place back in the fridge- or freezer if you’re in a hurry and let it set.
Decorate and enjoy!
