Lime White Chocolate Truffle

This weekend, I made these fantastic Lime White Chocolate Truffles. This recipe was a riff off of a lemon truffle I had a few weeks ago that I wanted to redo in lime format.
Lime White Chocolate Truffles
You need
8oz cream
Zest of 3 limes
16 oz white almond bark( or white chocolate melts or white chocolate)
powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Items needed ( ignore green sugar and pretend they are powdered sugar I changed  my mind)
1.In a saucepan put the 8oz of heavy cream 1/4 teaspoon of salt and the zest of the three limes. Put on medium  or medium low and bring to a simmer stirring while it simmers for 3-5 minutes.
2.Then remove from heat. Allow to cool to room temperature . This allows the yummy lime flavor to infuse into the cream.
Lime in the cream ( not as good a song as lime in the coconut)

3.Use a fine mesh spoon or a fine mesh strainer to remove the lime zest from the now cooled cream. Put the cream back in the saucepan and heat back to simmering at medium.
4. Break up the chocolate or chop up the chocolate. Add the chopped chocolate to the now just simmering cream. Keep on heat and stir until all of the chocolate has melted and then two more minutes where the chocolate cream mix is all well melted and simmering together.
5. Remove from heat and allow to come to room temp. After it has dropped to room temperature put in refrigerator until ready to roll.
6. Remove from fridge and using a spoon take 1 tablespoon at a time and roll into a nice truffle shape. Drop into a ramekin full of powdered sugar and roll it in the sugar. Place in mini muffin cup. Repeat for each truffle.

Options and riffs.
Could chill truffle balls and then dip in melted chocolate
Crushed graham crackers for rolling in would be delicious too and taste like key lime pie.

Try these this week.
