DIY White chocolate truffles

A sweet medicine against winter blues ...

Chocolate is always good, right? But even better are these delicious babies, creamy, white and soooo easy to make! I've tested and tried the recipe for our magazine KidsLife, and since than, have made several batches as little giveaways for dear friends - or just my own kids who love them. Give it a try for a special note to brighten pre-christmas days!

You need:

25 g Butter
75 g whipping cream
225 g white chocolate
A swig of "eau de vie", i used "Kirsch" (if you like) 

Melt butter in a little pot over low heat. Add cream and stir until almost cooking point, add chocolate and let t melt in the butter cream mixture. Add liquor to taste and fill the mix into a tray or low casserole. Let cool in the fridge for 2 hours. Form little balls (walnut size) with a spoon and the help of your hands. This is sticky, but fun! Roll the truffles in coconut-flakes and place them in the fridge again. Refrigerated they keep for 2 weeks. As a present, you can fill them in pretty boxes - the how to for these i'll post another time!
