These white chocolate truffles don’t just look elegant, they are also delicious. It’s the white chocolate variation of the classic dark chocolate truffle.

To make it you only need a bit of butter, white chocolate, whipping cream, hazelnuts, and coconut flour. The ingredients are melted then molded around a hazelnut and dipped in coconut flour. It’s as easy as 1,2, 3! These no-bake truffles come together quickly and easily, and it’s perfect for special festive occasions. It’s easy to customize the recipe according to your liking, so make sure to check out our tips below!

How To Make White Chocolate Truffles

Make the truffle mixture by melting together the butter and whipping cream. Add the white chocolate and mix until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is well combined. Transfer this mixture to a large plate, and allow it to cool in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Once the mixture has thickened in the refrigerator, it can be molded into truffles. Take a spoonful of the truffle mixture and mold it around a hazelnut. Roll in coconut flour and set aside. Continue until all the truffle mixture is used.

Tips

The whipping cream can be substituted with heavy cream, the truffles will just be chewier.

Make the truffles vegan by using vegetable shortening and coconut cream.

Instead of rolling the truffles in coconut flour, dip them in more melted white chocolate and sprinkle them with freeze-dried strawberries.

To make equally-sized truffles, use a small ice cream scoop to measure out the portions.

White Chocolate Truffle Variations.

For added texture, add mini white chocolate chips to the truffle mixture before rolling it into balls. You can play around with other mix-ins too. Try chopped nuts, cranberries, or even caramel bits

Give the truffles an eggnog twist by adding rum, brandy, or whiskey extract and sprinkling the truffles with a pinch of nutmeg.

Feel free to use a coating other than coconut flour. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • freeze-dried fruit
  • rainbow sprinkles
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • grated chocolate
