Just four simple ingredients and you can have these sublime Coconut White Chocolate Truffles for your sweet tooth’s pleasure!
Coconut White Chocolate Truffles
Growing up, I had a penchant for those coconut bonbons in those boxes of chocolates that made the rounds on Valentine’s Day. Then my mom started making Mounds Bars and I fell deeper in love with coconut desserts.
But white chocolate was a more recent addiction–if it was around when I was a child, it wasn’t prevalent in central Iowa. Today is one of those rare occasions when I can combine both these favorites. This recipe for coconut white chocolate truffles is one that anyone can make—especially since it has so few ingredients and steps!
Tips for Making These FOUR Ingredient Truffles
Can you even believe that you can make a rich, decadent and totally irresistible dessert with only FOUR simple ingredients??? Well, here is your proof.
- I chopped a bar and a half of good quality white chocolate, melted it with some heavy cream then whisked in a splash of vanilla bean paste. I recommend using a Ghirardelli bar or other white chocolate bar instead of lesser quality chocolate chips.
- Make sure to finely chop your chocolate so it melts easily and evenly.
- It’s super easy make ganache (chocolate melted with heavy cream) in the microwave. Just do it slowly. Depending on the power of your microwave, zap for 15-30 seconds, stir and repeat until the chocolate is almost totally melted. The residual heat will finish the job.
- Once chilled and scooped, roll the balls of ganache in coconut and voila, truffles!
- If you’re not a coconut fan, try rolling these gems in chopped nuts (pistachios are my new crush), sprinkles, or if you dare, chocolate melts.
- Make these white chocolate truffles to suit your own preferences and you’ll love every nibble.
