I have loved the creamy, richness of a great truffle since I bite into the buttery, silky creaminess of my first one when I was around 20. Since that point I’ve been kind of obsessed with them — both making and eating. The one thing I really love about truffles is that they are deceptively easy to make. Generally the ingredients are just cream, chocolate, and some flavoring. It’s not hard to melt them in the microwave, either. Once chilled, shaped, and chilled they can be dipped in chocolate or rolled in cocoa powder. Anything beyond that is just embellishment.
So remember I got all of that lavender when I got the ingredients for the lavender shortbread cookies? It’s sitting on my counter in a glass apothecary jar waiting to be used. It’s going to take awhile so you can probably expect to see a regular parade of lavender recipes over the next few months.
These melt-in-your-mouth little lavender white chocolate truffles were much better than I expected — and I expected them to be awesome. I rarely use sweetened condensed milk for anything other than key lime pie but I had some and I’d seen it used in truffle recipes so I decided to try it to see how it worked. I was afraid that it would make the candy too sweet or chalky but it didn’t. It was just right.
Part of that was, I think, due to the lemon and lavender being kind of tangy. These freeze well so you could make a big batch and keep them in the freezer until you needed them. I’d say wanted them but I am relatively sure that once you taste one you’ll want them all the time. These would be great for any of the occasions coming up: Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, wedding showers, baby showers… you name it.
