eye candy...

definition:   something that is INCREDIBLY pleasing to the eye.
something you just can't stop staring at.

now, i THINK the term "eye candy" came about to describe a VERY
attractive person...girl OR guy.
so for those of you who want THAT kind of eye candy,
i give you Mr. Phantom of the Opera himself...
Gerard Butler.

personally, i think even food is eye candy sometimes.
TOO MANY times:)
white chocolate lemon truffles.

White Chocolate Lemon Truffles

  • 1 cup white chocolate
  • 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. lemon extract
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  1. Melt chocolate, butter and cream over a double boiler or in a microwave. Stir until smooth.
  2. Stir in salt and extract. Allow to cool slightly before covering with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
  3. With a melon baller or small spoon scoop out mixture and form into 1 inch balls. Toss with icing sugar to coat.
  4. Store covered in the fridge for up to one week. Freeze for longer storage.
Makes: 24
* Using unsalted butter allows you to control the salty flavour of these truffles. The pinch of salt helps to cut through the sweetness of the white chocolate. If you decide to use salted butter make sure to omit the pinch of salt called for in the recipe or they will be far too salty.
* If you want to amp up the yellow color, stir in some yellow food coloring along with the extract and salt.

lastly, if you notice, i have a new "print this" button at the bottom of my posts.
