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!

Only Four Ingredients

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.

Once chilled and scooped, balls of ganache were rolled 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.

  3. I’d be having one or two for breakfast! White chocolate is becoming a favorite of mine too:@)

  4. I’d eat the whole batch. Total fan of coconut here.

  5. What a creamy delicious indulgence! I’d take a couple of those and go hide away with a good book for a little me time. I like the thought of crushed pistachio coating too!

  6. I am vaguely obsessed with those coconut white chocolate ferrero rocher chocolates…so to be able to make them at home would just be insane. In the best way.

  7. I tend to stay away from making sweets at home because they usually call for alll the sugar, but this looks so good and I love the ingredient list. I also love coconut, so this is a no brainer. Yum!

  8. White chocolate does seem to be more prevalent these days. i remember some sort of white chocolate candy pieces that were used when I was growing up in NE Iowa but I don’t remember seeing white chocolate bars like you do now. These little balls are so cute, and anything with coconut has my attention. 🙂 Don’t let Izzy see these, she would think edible balls were just the thing! 🙂

  9. Yum, these look like the perfect sweet, coconut treat! I’m also from Iowa – the north central part of the state 🙂

  10. Coconut is a recent love for me, but now I can’t get enough. I would totally devour these. I tried to make truffles a couple times, but I can never get the mixture to set. I have no idea what’s going wrong.

  11. I need at least a dozen! They look divine!

  12. Such a simple but elegant dessert!

  13. Love this! I had a very different upbringing — I grew up on a tropical island, and coconut was a plentiful staple, but I can still appreciate your excitement for your Mom’s creations — there’s nothing much better than fresh coconut 🙂 Sounds like these would be great with chopped nuts, too.

  14. So yummy looking and oh so addictive I bet!

  15. You would’ve loved my birthday parties in Tokyo, Liz. Coconut birthday cake was one of my favorites…Speaking of faves…You are one of my go-to people for bulletproof sensational recipes. Definitely keeping this recipe =)

  16. What sublime truffles, I’m craving one as an afternoon treat!

  17. Oh my… I have just the chocolate in the pantry for these–Guillard white chocolate. I know what I’m making for bookgroup on Tuesday!

  18. Amazing how these can be made with just four ingredients. I love your serving platter – purpose built! White chocolate truffles are my favourite. These would be perfect any time but especially at Christmas! xx

  19. I love how simple this is. We are big fans of white chocolate and coconut, you can imagine how happy I was when I saw this. Pinning to make it very very soon.

  20. It is impossible to stop eating such truffles!

  21. Another winning recipe Liz. I love how you used your egg crates to show them off.

  22. Cutest dish ever for those and I would be popping one after another!!

  23. I’m also a big fan of coconut desserts. These truffles look PERFECT!

  24. I could eat these all day long!

  25. These look exactly like the ones our local chocolate shop sells, and I bet they taste better!

  26. Wow, wow, wow, Liz! My hips are not thanking you right now, but I do love this recipe xoxo

  27. Those look delicious Liz, and with just 4 ingredients, I might have to give them a try!

  28. Sweet Mother of Pearl these are way too easy to make! I think I love white chocolate more than any other variety.

  29. I’m a huge coconut fan and these truffles look amazing! Love them 🙂

  30. I’ve always been a fan of mounds so I know that I would definitely enjoy one or more of your truffles. 🙂

  31. Oh dear, you have found one of my biggest weaknesses, Liz. I love anything coconut and once I start…well, it isn’t pretty. I bought something similar in a candy shop at the beach and can’t wait to try your recipe.

  32. I love coconut, truffles and on between! 🙂 your coconut white chocolate truffles looks very appetizing and delish… love it!
