The heat is on people. And it seems it decided to stay. Since we avoid raising temperatures inside we make no bake desserts: Limoncello Truffles are perfect example of no bake tasty bites specially if made using Limoncello from Scratch .

Limoncello From Scratch : Italian Freezer Drink.
To make festive version, I separated 15 truffles and left in freezer overnight ( two hours are enough ); it is much easier to cover the balls with chocolate frosting when they are frozen.

I used the best quality white chocolate frosting to melt and highly recommend you do the same. Truffles really looks fancy like those hand made ones you spot while visiting chocolate shops wherever you are.

Once frosting is melted and hot, place the truffle on a fork and dip into the frosting. Lay on a rack or baking paper. I have chosen baking paper so extra chocolate remains sticked to the truffles. Doing that version, your truffles will cool quickly since their interior is frozen.
After you dip all truffles into the frosting, keep them refrigerated if not serving immediately.
As you can see on the photo, I have done 30 truffles all together but 15 rolled in icing sugar ( 2 tablespoons needed ) and 15 dipped in frosting ( ½ cup needed ).

My birthday is getting closer and I decided to store chocolate covered batch for the occasion since this dessert is not kid friendly ( alcohol in Limoncello ).
For longer storage, freeze two months. To enjoy, thaw in refrigerator before serving .
