So little effort, for such a big reward. These delectable truffles of white chocolate, with a hint of lemon and crushed butterscotch for crunch, go down a treat. I made these as gifts for Christmas, and everyone moaned with delight and said they tasted just like a cheesecake. Store truffles in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator if not serving immediately. They can also be frozen.
