Equipment

  • Bowls
  • Weighing scales
  • Baking paper
  • Tray
  • Spoon

Ingredients

Truffle

  • 225 grams White Chocolate
  • 75 grams Cream

Coating

  • 200 grams White Chocolate
  • 40 grams Desiccated Coconut

Instructions

  • Melt the white chocolate (for the truffle) and cream in short blasts in the microwave until melted.
  • Place mix into the fridge to set for 1 hour.
  • Remove from the fridge and prepare a tray with parchment paper.
  • Roll the ganache mix into 20 balls approx. 15 grams each then place onto the parchment paper.
  • Set these in the fridge for about 30 minutes until firm.
  • Melt the coating white chocolate in short blasts in the microwave until melted.
  • Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate using fork, tap the excess chocolate off then place onto the parchment paper. Repeat with all the truffles.
  • Place the tray of truffles in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set again.
  • Once firm, using the remaining chocolate (Remelt if needed) slightly coat the outside of the truffle in a very small amount of the chocolate. I used some gloves to do this and rolled the small amount around the truffle. You want just enough to stick the coconut.
  • Dip into the coconut and roll around till coated.
  • Repeat with all the truffles then place in the fridge. They should set up fairly quickly but just to be safe.
  • Package up for presents or keep them all for yourself! Enjoy! They can be stored in the fridge or at room them for a softer centre.
