White Chocolate Lemon Truffles

As most of you now, I am living in Mersin, Turkey. Mersin is a citrus region and because of that we use them a lot in our recipes. Right now we are blessed with an awesome fragrance from the citrus trees. Every year I look forward to this time of year as it is out of this world to me! Today I decided to make these white chocolate lemon truffles and share them with you. Such an easy recipe and they are so delicious. They are great for gifting too.
