Instructions
 

Making the Ganache

  • Pour the double cream into a jug and heat in the microwave for approximately 40 seconds or until it starts to boil. Alternatively you can boil the cream in a pan on the hob Timing will vary from microwave to microwave. TIP:  Don’t allow the cream to come to a full boil. 
  • Place your chocolate chips or pieces into a glass bowl. Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate and allow it to stand for 3 minutes
  • Add the Limoncello & lemon zest. Using a spatula, combine the chocolate, cream and liquor and zest until you reach a smooth texture 
  • Refrigerate until set for approximately 2 hours. You’ll know it’s set when the ganache is firm enough to roll into a ball in your hands

Rolling the Truffles

  • Put the cocoa powder on a plate ready to roll the truffles. 
  • Take a teaspoon of the ganache and in the palm of your hands, roll it into a ball
  • Roll the truffles in the powder, coating fully and place in a plate
  • Once made, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 3 days. Best enjoyed at room temperature
