Melt in mouth white chocolate balls, flavored and covered with coconut are white chocolate truffles. Chocolate recipes are everyone’s favorite, who wouldn’t like chocolate! And chocolate truffle is an easy dessert one can make with chocolate, be it white or dark or milk chocolate. These chocolate balls make an absolutely gorgeous gift option. I often make these for my friends and relatives.
Truffle recipes are so simple and call for minimal ingredients. These chocolate balls are a treat for anyone who loves white chocolate, for example, I. Icing on the cake is the flavor of coconut. Chocolate truffles are a combination of chocolate and heavy cream. One can make chocolate truffles with these 2 ingredients only. However, this recipe uses coconut too. Let’s have a look at its ingredients:
White Chocolate: White chocolate is available in different forms. I use the white chocolate compound. You can also use white chocolate chips or white chocolate bar. These are easily available at the confectioners or online. You can use coconut chocolate too for more flavor of coconut. However, be very careful while cooking white chocolate as it is a bit tricky to work with white chocolate. However, in this recipe, it is cooked with heavy cream so it is quite manageable.
Heavy Cream: Heavy cream is used in many gravies and dal recipes. Heavy cream is also used in many dessert recipes. In this chocolate truffle recipe, I have used 4 parts of white chocolate and 1 part of heavy creamy and this proportion gave me such melt in mouth truffles.
Desiccated coconut: Coconut has been used to flavor these white chocolate truffles. Desiccated coconut is not only added to the truffle mixtures but even the chocolate balls are coated with it.
Chocolate recipes are so versatile. You can make for kids, for gifts or as desserts, etc. These have a long shelf life and can customised as per choice. And therefore we have a number of recipes on the blog such as chocolate coated Oreos, chocolate barfi, eggless whole wheat chocolate cake, chocolate milkshake, etc.
