Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup thickened cream
  • 250 g good quality white chocolate chopped
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 300 g white chocolate melts

Instructions

  • Heat the cream in short bursts in the microwave until simmering hot.
  • Add the chopped white chocolate and stir until it's melted and smooth.
  • Stir in the lime zest, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • Scoop out ganache into balls using a melon baller or teaspoon. Gently roll the balls in your hand for an even finish.
  • 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.
  • To add their hangers, use a toothpick or skewer to pierce a hole directly through the truffle.
  • Cut equal lengths of elastic and tie a knot at the bottom.
  • Thread the elastic through the truffle, the knot will ensure it doesn't pull completely through.
  • Melt the remaining white chocolate in the microwave.
  • Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, coating evenly. Return to the baking tray to harden.
  • 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.
  • Decorate your tree!
