Smooth-as-silk key lime ganache filling enrobed in dark chocolate. These homemade truffles make me weak at the knees!
Chocolate truffles are special, which is why you usually buy them. There’s a lot you need to know about making them at home. It’s not simply melting chocolate with cream and rolling into a ball. It is so much more than that! That’s why I’m writing an entire chapter about them in my book! But I promise, they’re approachable and you can do this.
3/4 cup (180ml) heavy cream
zest of 2 limes
