White Chocolate Lemon Truffle Recipe

Every year, I make a TON of homemade candy.  I like to add new flavors occasionally and this white chocolate lemon truffle recipe was my new flavor last year. I had never attempted white chocolate truffles before and was a bit nervous.  Honestly, though, the recipe is very similar to a traditional chocolate truffle.  In my opinion, this lemon truffle is honestly one of my favorite holiday candy recipes now.  It is incredibly easy and the lemon flavor is delicate and not overpowering.

Lemon and White Chocolate Homemade Truffles

Tips for Making These Homemade Truffles

Okay, making homemade truffles is seriously easy, however, there are a few secrets I have learned over the years. Most of the time involved is just rechilling the chocolate mixture before you roll them.  If you want to give these lemon truffles as a gift, plan ahead.  The white chocolate mixture will need at least 3 to 4 hours to chill at the bare minimum.

Here are a few tips to help you make this white chocolate lemon truffle recipe quickly and easily!

  • Finely chop the white chocolate.  I get my supplies from a candy supply store but recommend Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers as well. 
  • Heat the cream in a double boiler.  You do NOT want this to burn!
  • Stir frequently until smooth.  The more you stir, the faster it will melt.
  • Use natural lemon flavor oil to taste.  
  • Pour the ganache into a shallow glass bowl and refrigerate until firm.  Do not try to work with white chocolate that is not completely set up.  It will not end well.
  • Scoop and roll the truffles using a small cookie scoop.
  • Roll the lemon truffles in sparkling white sugar. You can roll them in powdered sugar, however, I don’t think they are quite as pretty. 
  • Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Giving Homemade Candy As Gifts

If you want to give homemade candy as gifts this year, I have LOTS of recipes for you to try!  Here are a few of my favorite homemade candy recipes:

I tend to like ball shaped candies that I can put into candy boxes and present to friends, neighbors, teachers, and even the kids’ bus driver.   You can also make my all time favorite homemade caramel recipe.   Once they are firm, wrap them in candy foil and give as gifts!

White Chocolate Lemon Truffle Recipe

If lemon isn’t your favorite flavor, you can use this same white chocolate truffle recipe but swap out the flavors a bit.  Use orange zest and orange oil.  Or use peppermint oil and roll in crushed candy canes.  It is really quite flexible!  I love Candyland Crafts for homemade candy supplies but you can also look at your nearest craft store.
