What are these white chocolate truffles made of?

These simple homemade truffles are breeze to make and yet they are so delicious and pretty. For making them you will need only 5 ingredients, so be sure to use the quality one.

White chocolate is the base...

To make these truffles, you need to start out with pure white chocolate. Do not use chocolate chips in this recipe. We love to use Nestle baking white chocolate, but you can use any other quality brand you have on hand. Find them in the baking aisle of the grocery shop or order online.

As written in the recipe below, you need 200g of white chocolate for these truffles. Chop the chocolate bar it into small pieces - this will help the chocolate melt down easier and quicker. The best way to do this is using a sturdy kitchen knife on a cutting board.

Heavy whipping cream + butter

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.

About freeze-dried raspberries...

These truffles are super special thanks to the freeze-dried raspberries, whose tartness complements amazingly well with sweetness of white chocolate. Plus, their bright red colour gives nice contrast to the yellow 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. 

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!

How to make these pretty truffles

These truffles are incredibly quick and easy to make:

  1. Place chopped white chocolate and whipping cream in a heatproof bowl (we love these glass bowls which are ideal for melting chocolate). Place over a saucepan of simmering water and stir with silicon spatula. Use gentle circular motions, in one direction until you get a smooth ganache.

  2. Remove from the heat, then add butter and stir until combined.

  3. Add chopped freeze-dried raspberries and stir so they are evenly distributed.

  4. Leave the mixture in the fridge, covered with clingfilm for about 1 hour. The ganache should be firm but still scoopable.

  5. When the ganache is set, scoop with a teaspoon (the size of small walnut) and roll between your palms into balls. Roll each truffle into hazelnut croquants. Place them on a plate and keep in the fridge until serving.

If you have some leftover truffles (we doubt it), 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. If stored in an airtight container in the fridge, these white chocolate truffles can last for up to 2 weeks.

Useful tip!

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!
