Alternatively, visit our Dark Chocolate Truffle or Milk Chocolate Truffles!! Whichever you prefer, we made all of them as none of us agrees on which is best! So you decide yourself?!
We make a selection of these every Christmas to give out to family and friends, the kids love to get involved too.
Making White Chocolate Truffles
Follow along the pictures below and print out the recipe card at the bottom of page, our kids loved making these with us!
Break the white chocolate up, add hot cream and butter to it
Place the bowl in a bigger bowl and fill with boiling water, stir together until well combined. If you break the chocolate into smaller cubes at the start this would happen quicker! This can also be done over the hob but as it was our son doing it we kept it safer for him.
Place bowl UNCOVERED in the fridge to set for about 2hrs.
Use a teaspoon to scrape 2 teaspoons worth of mixture into your hand. Next, roll it into a ball. It will be sticky, try not to spend too much time rolling or they will melt!
Truffle Topping Ideas
Now choose your toppings! There are so many options!! Cocoa Powder, nuts, sprinkles, coconut, dipped in chocolate, grated chocolate, chocolate strands, sugar strands, icing.
Above you can see served in little tiny tins, so cute and reusable!
We keep a selection of these out on the sideboard over Christmas for people to help themselves to.
See above served on a two-tiered silver stand so cute and reusable!
When we are gifting these we put them in mini paper cases. As you can see below, they look great packaged up ready for Christmas Presents, in cellophane bags with pull ribbons.
