Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup thickened cream
  • 250g good quality white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 300g white chocolate melts
Instructions
  1. Heat the cream in short bursts in the microwave until simmering hot.
  2. Add the chopped white chocolate and stir until it's melted and smooth.
  3. Stir in the lime zest, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  4. Scoop out ganache into balls using a melon baller or teaspoon. Gently roll the balls in your hand for an even finish.
  5. If the weather is hot, put the balls back in the fridge for 30 minutes on a tray lined with baking paper so they don't stick.
  6. To add their hangers, use a toothpick or skewer to pierce a hole directly through the truffle.
  7. Cut equal lengths of elastic and tie a knot at the bottom.
  8. Thread the elastic through the truffle, the knot will ensure it doesn't pull completely through.
  9. Melt the remaining white chocolate in the microwave.
  10. Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, coating evenly. Return to the baking tray to harden.
  11. Pipe a little circle around the base of the string with white chocolate or an edible cake gel pen to make it look like a bauble.
  12. Decorate your tree!
