These are tasty confections - great for a snack and wonderful for the holidays as well. It is a keeper recipe.  These creamy treats will call your name.  I know I couldn't wait to try them - delicious is the verdict!  I keep them chilled in the refrigerator. Being lemon-flavored, these make a perfect Springtime treat!

They are deliciously creamy due to the heavy cream and butter in these truffles.  A few drops of yellow food coloring gives them a sunny look, enhancing the natural pale yellow hue given by the lemon juice and zest.

Fresh lemon juice and zest gives these confections a fresh lemon flavor and the combination with white chocolate is just lovely.

These rich citrusy balls are rolled in a sweet coconut mixture.  If you do not like coconut, you could roll them simply in your favorite powdered sweetener.

These would be a nice sweet to take to a summer picnic.  I am thinking of doing just that soon.  I would keep them in the cooler though.

These confections are easy and very quick to make.  Next to dark and milk chocolate, lemon is the flavor favorite of many people, and certainly it is mine.

You can use a 1-tbsp cookie scoop, but since I didn't have one, I simply used a measuring spoon.  This makes a simple but elegant dessert as well.

Leaving them at room temperature could make them melt a bit especially in hot, humid weather.  I keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.  If you prefer you could change the flavor up and make these with limes or oranges.  It is a very easy recipe to change up the flavor as a result.  If you make the orange flavor, you could dip them in melted chocolate  (with a bit of butter or cream) and freeze to harden the chocolate, and after that refrigerate them or roll in cocoa powder, coconut or finely chopped nuts.  Yum, what a great idea!  I might just make that next, but I would be tempted to use dark chocolate as I love dark chocolate orange chocolates.  Our youngest son also loves that flavor and when he was young I would buy him a chocolate orange for Christmas.  He loved that and always looked forward to it.

These confections will be most people's favorite, so be prepared to supply the recipe to those folks who ask for it.  I didn't use lemon extract in these as that tends to give them a more artificial taste.
