White Chocolate Truffle Recipe:

Truffes au chocolat blanc

Ingredients (for about 1.5 pounds):

1 cup Crème Fraîche (or heavy cream)
14 oz. White Chocolate (use as high quality of chocolate as possible)
8 oz. Additional White Chocolate
11/2 cups Ground Coconut (optional)
3 tbsp. Butter (optional)

How to Make It:

Batter (Ganache):

1. Break chocolate into small pieces and put in a large bowl.
2. Bring cream slowly to a light boil.
3. Pour boiling cream over chocolate and keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted and the batter is homogenous.
4. If you want to add butter, do so now, before the batter cools, and thickens.

This batter is called Ganache and is the base for all French chocolate truffle recipes!

When the ganache is warm it is very creamy. You can thicken it
1. by whisking it (the oxygen causes it to thicken) or
2. by putting it in the refrigerator.

You want the ganache to be just thick enough to easily form the truffle balls…

Forming Truffles:

1. Using two spoons (or a baking sac) form even and round balls. Place them on parchment or wax paper.
2. Melt the rest of the chocolate in a bain-marie (double-boiler).
3. Dip each ball in the melted chocolate.
4. If you like ground coconut (I do), you can now roll the balls in it, otherwise just skip the coconut part.Voilà!

Serving Ideas and Variations:

If you want a more bitter taste, you can dip the truffle balls in dark chocolate (step 3) instead of white and then roll in cocoa powder (just like for a traditional dark truffle recipe).
You can also experiment the above white chocolate truffle recipe with other dipping/rolling combinations. White chocolate ganache (inside of truffle) dipped in milk chocolate (step 3) then rolled in coconut flakes (step 4) is one of my favorites.
White chocolate truffles go especially well with a good cup of hazelnut coffee.
