Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 18 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Coarse or confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over barely simmering water, melt butter into cream; remove from heat. Gradually add candy coating, stirring continuously with rubber spatula until candy coating begins to melt. Return to heat; stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Stir in confectioners' sugar. (If mixture separates, beat with a mixer for 30 seconds.) Pour into an 8-in. square pan. Chill for 20 minutes or until slightly hardened.
  2. Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out and shape into 1-in. balls. Roll in coarse sugar. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

White Chocolate Truffle Recipe Tips

How do you store white chocolate truffles?

Once the truffles are chilled and firm, store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. You can also freeze truffles.

How do you stop truffles from melting in your hands when rolling them?

To prevent truffles from melting in your hands when rolling, form as much of the truffles as possible with just the tips of your fingers before rolling them in your palm. Wearing latex gloves can also protect truffles from the heat of your hands. If the truffles still feel too soft, pop them into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to firm up, and then continue with rolling.

How can you make sure that each truffle is the same size?

To make sure that each truffle is the same size, use a spring-loaded cookie scoop, leveling the mixture against the side of the bowl.

What are some variations of this white chocolate truffle recipe?

Some variations of this white chocolate truffle recipe include stirring a few drops of food coloring into the mixture after the confectionery coating has melted and adding a small amount of vanilla, lemon, almond or mint extract. You can also roll the truffles in sprinkles, chopped toasted nuts or mini chocolate chips instead of in sugar.
