    So delicious! We doubled the limoncello and the ganache didn't firm up completely, but we dipped them in melted white chocolate and the chocolate shell kept them sealed up. When you bit into them it was a limoncello explosion since the ganache was soft... Amazing!

    Just made the truffle base from this recipe, I didn't add the Limoncello right away after adding the cream and I think it is important that one should add the cream and the Limoncello at the same time; it assists in thinning out the chocolate to get it to the proper consistency. I tasted it and it seemed a bit flat so I added about 1/4 t of salt (I doubled the recipe). It brought it to the flavor I was looking for. I always add a little salt to desserts :) I can already tell these will be delicious for Thanksgiving. I am planning on rolling them in both grated white chocolate and coconut.

    These taste delicious. I had a little trouble with melting my chocolate, so after straining my cream into the chocolate, I put it back on the stove-top to melt it. After adding the limoncello I felt that the lemon flavor was still a little mild, so I added another tablespoon. I rolled some of my truffles a little big because I got about 20 truffles total. I rolled most of the truffles in coconut, but I also rolled a few in chopped white chocolate, I think I like the chopped chocolate version the best. Thanks for posting!

    Lovely little sweets! The lemon and white chocolate go so well together! My coconut was a little bit dry, so I moistened it with a bit more limoncello before rolling the truffles in it -- nice little extra hit of lemon flavor. Yum! Thanks for posting, teamie! ;) Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7

    If I confess to my gluttony, does that mean there's a loophole to getting my way into heaven? Made for #40 A-NZ Recipe Swap.
