How To Make
White Chocolate Truffles
"Another of my delicious, easy chocolate recipes"
These white chocolate truffles are very easy to make and only have two ingredients - delicious white chocolate and fresh cream.
The hardness of white chocolate varies a great deal depending on the brand.
So I recommend you use the white chocolate you love to eat the most as the base for this chocolate truffle recipe.
As with all my easy chocolate recipes I have given you a base recipe and as you go through this page you will find simple variation suggestions to satisfy all your white chocolate truffles needs!
Please read through my white chocolate truffle recipe first before starting.

Recipe for White Chocolate Truffles
Makes 30 generous sized truffles
150ml pure cream (35% fat)
450g white chocolate, finely chopped
Icing sugar (confectioners sugar) to coat the truffles.
- Add the chopped white chocolate to a medium sized microwave safe bowl. Set aside while you heat the cream.
- Heat the cream in a small saucepan to just boiling point and pour over the chopped chocolate. If you are adding flavourings add them with the cream.
- Let stand for 2 minutes so that the white chocolate has time to melt.
- Stir until smooth. If the chocolate has not melted completely then you can heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
- Leave the chocolate truffle mix until it has set. If you are in a hurry this can be done in the fridge.
- Using a heaped teaspoon amount roll into balls in the palms of your clean hands and place on a tray with non-stick baking paper. If the mix is too soft to get a nice ball shape then get them as round as you can then place the tray in the fridge. Once they have chilled roll again.
- Roll the truffles in icing sugar to give a light coating.
- The truffles are now finished. Cover and store in the refrigerator. To enjoy the full flavour of your truffles remove from the refrigerator 30mins before eating.
Like I said before white chocolate hardness does vary a lot. So if you find the batch you just made a litle soft after setting try coating them in melted chocolated and next time increase the white chocolate to 550g.

Now this just the base recipe and like all my recipes I will now show you how to make flavour variations. Variations to your truffle flavours can be added in two ways; to the chocolate truffle recipe or simply to the coating of the truffle.
Sometimes just rolling them in freshly roasted nuts is enough to put a smile on everyones lips.
The icing sugar is the simplest way to finish these truffles or to break the sweetness try the traditional sifted cocoa powder.
I have put together an extensive chocolate truffle flavour variations page. This is where I show you how to take this base and turn it into your favourite white chocolate truffles. Ideas include orange, mint, chilli, almond, mocha, pistachio, ginger and more ...
