Because white chocolate has such a neutral flavour, you can add different flavouring, combine several and make endless variety. They can be rolled in icing sugar, cocoa powder or dipped in dark or white chocolate to be more stable at room temperature.
MAKING WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE: Chop the white chocolate into smaller pieces using a serrated knife so it melts quickly and evenly once combined with whipping cream. Heat the whipping cream in a small saucepan until it start to simmer and pour over the white chocolate.
Whisk until the chocolate completely melted, then add butter and whisk again until the texture is smooth. Pour the mixture into shallow dish and place in the fridge until it is ready to scoop 1 - 2 hours.
Depending on the chocolate and the cream you use, your truffles may need a little longer to set. Once you can roll them into a balls using your hands, you are good to go. If the mixture is too soft, leave it in the fridge little bit longer or transfer it in the freezer for about 15 - 30 minutes before rolling.
ROLLING THE TRUFFLES: Now it's time to make truffles. Using a teaspoon or a cookie scoop, scoop a small amount of ganache and roll into a ball between your palms. Place the truffles on a tray covered with aluminium foil and place in the fridge for about 10 minutes. Roll the truffles into white chocolate shavings until completely covered. Put truffles back to the fridge until serving.
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.
