    very yummy! A nice change from most truffles. I wish I would have minced the peels after zesting for better flavor distribution. I also dipped these in white chocolate, then in coconut. This made them a little too sweet. The truffle was very firm, and I had to melt it in the microwave to roll it out. Loved it, though!

    Yum, yum and yum again. I did these last night as presents for DD's kindergarten teachers and they have turned out really well. Super easy and super delicious. Thanks Mandy for another keeper.

    Really good! And so easy. I wanted to try the the recipe before I made them for company, so I cut the recipe in 1/3 and the truffles turned out fine. I want to try dark chocolate too - next time. Great recipe Mandy!

    These are simply outstanding!! 20 stars, at least. And so easy to make. The balance of citrus and coconut is perfect. I sprinkled leftover finely grated lemon and lime rind over the serving dish. The next time I make these, I may mix more rinds into the coating coconut, for more color.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
