These simple white chocolate truffles are breeze to make and yet they are so delicious. For making them you'll need only 5 ingredients, so be sure to use the high-quality ones.
To make these truffles, be sure to have pure white chocolate. Don't use chocolate chips in this recipe. We love to use Nestle baking white chocolate bar, but feel free to use any other quality brand you have on hand (search in the baking aisle of the grocery shop or order online).
As written in the recipe below, you'll need 200g of white chocolate. Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces (this will help to melt it down easier and quicker). The best way to do this is using a sturdy kitchen knife and a wooden cutting board.
For making the white chocolate ganache, you'll also need a few tablespoons of whipping cream (heavy cream or double cream are also fine, as long as the milk fat is 32% or more). Don't swap this for milk.
Also, a few tablespoons of butter is added in the end to make these truffles super creamy. Just be sure to cut it into smaller pieces so it blends easily into the ganache.
Freeze-dried raspberries are the ingredient making these truffles something special. Their tartness complements amazingly well with sweet flavour of white chocolate. Plus, their red colour gives nice contrast to the yellowish white chocolate.
Freeze-dried raspberries are dehydrated raspberries, which has the same flavour as the fresh one. But these are crisp and ideal for adding to desserts as well as decorating them. Drop a handful of these in your yogurt, it's so delicious!
These raspberries are available any time of the year and have an intense raspberry flavour. Get freeze-dried raspberries from your local health food store (they are sold into 25g or 35g packets) or order them online here.
Once the package is open, keep them tightly seeled as they easily become soft. These are great for adding to your pudding or yogurt!
These truffles are incredibly quick and easy to make. Just follow these steps:
If you have any leftover truffles (what we sincerely doubt), simply store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. For the best taste and texture, serve the truffles at room temperature.
These truffles look and taste great rolled into hazelnut croquant (finely chopped hazelnuts that are toasted and caramelised with sugar), but you can use other stuff for rolling.
Choose from white chocolate or dark chocolate shavings, chopped toasted hazelnuts of pistachios, melted white chocolate, icing sugar, colourful sprinkles... Anything will work well here!
