To make the truffles:

  • Place white chocolate in heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, heat butter with cream over medium heat just until melts and bubbles form around edge of saucepan.
  • Pour over the white chocolate; beat until smooth. Beat in lemon zest and Limoncello. Cover and place in the freezer until firm, around 30 minutes.
  • Then, smoothly and carefully roll to form balls. Put them in the freezer until hard, about 30 minutes.

To make the white chocolate coating: 

  • In a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of hot water, melt 1/2 of the white chocolate. Add a few drops of the yellow food color (to desired shade) into the chocolate; let cool slightly.Using 2 forks and working with 1 sheet of truffles, dip each into chocolate, tapping forks on edge of bowl in order to get rid of the excess.
  • Next, sprinkle tops with powdered sugar. Refrigerate until coating hardens, around 30 minutes. Serve.

Buon Appetito!
