White Chocolate Raspberry TrufflesWhite Chocolate Raspberry Truffles for everyone! These would be perfect to share with your Valentine, but you don’t have to wait for any holiday or excuse to make these! These White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles are so creamy, delicious and full of flavor that you need some in your fridge all the time. Just check that gorgeous pink color, all natural from the raspberries. They burst with raspberry flavor, and we all know that raspberry and white chocolate where meant to be together! Rich, creamy and so incredibly tasty, I love these beauties straight from the fridge, they are so refreshing and sweet!

Tips and tricks to make perfect White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles Recipe:

  • Use high quality white chocolate – this should go without saying, but when you make truffles you should use the best chocolate on hand, do not use chocolate chips in this recipe, they are not that creamy. I either like to use high quality chopped chocolate or good chocolate melts. Do not use chocolate chips to make this recipe.
  • Make sure you chop the chocolate in small pieces, this will help with the melting process, in case you are not using chocolate melts.
  • Be very careful when meting the white chocolate, it tends to separate when overheated. I highly recommend microwaving it in 20 seconds intervals, and string very well after each one. It is better to use the residual heat to melt any remaining chocolate pieces, by stirring well. Make sure the bowl you put the chocolate in doesn’t have any drops of water, same applies to the spatula you will use for stirring. If water comes in contact with hot white chocolate it will ruin it.
  • Use freeze dried raspberries – to get that beautiful and natural pink color, also they will add a delicious raspberry flavor without adding any artificial flavors to the truffles.
  • It is very, very important for the butter to be soft, room temperature. When you press your finger into it, your finger should sink easily.
  • Heat the heavy cream in the microwave well, it should be hot.
  • Another very important step, when you add the melted white chocolate to the butter and cream mixture, both should be of room temperature. If the chocolate is hot, it will further melt the butter and the recipe won’t work.
  • When chilling the mixture in the fridge, watch it very closely for at least the first 30 minutes. I tend to check on it every 5-7 minutes and stir, to make sure the butter does not separate.

White Chocolate Raspberry TrufflesTools/Ingredients I used to make these White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles Recipe:

  • Food Processor – I have a small one and it’s so handy in so many recipes, from chopping veggies to pulverizing freezer dried fruits.
  • Freeze Dried Raspberries – these are perfect to snack on and absolutely amazing in truffles, I also love adding them to Raspberry Buttercream without making it runny.
  • White Chocolate – I love using these chocolate wafers in this recipe, they are designed to melt quickly with no issues, which makes using them so much easier.

White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles made with 5 ingredients only, these are sweet, creamy, full of flavor and have the prettiest natural pink color!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 15 truffles
Author: Catalina Castravet
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chopped
  • 1 stick/113grams butter unsalted and at room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 cups freeze dried raspberries measure then process into powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Add freeze dried raspberries to the food processor and pulse to make a powder. Set aside.
  2. Add heavy cream to a small sauce pan on medium heat and simmer over low heat or microwave for 1 minute, until hot and boiling.
  3. When heavy cream just starts to boil, remove it from heat and stir in butter until fully combined and smooth. If the mixture has small lumps and you can microwave if for only 20 seconds, but not more, as you don't want to fully melt the butter.
  4. Stir in the raspberry powder. Set aside to come to room temperature.
  5. Add chopped white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl, and microwave on high in 20 seconds intervals until chocolate is melted. Stir very well after each interval to make sure the chocolate doesn't overheat and become unusable. You may need 2-3 intervals of 20 seconds for the chocolate to fully melt. Use the residual heat from chocolate to melt any remaining small pieces of chocolate by stirring well. Set aside for the chocolate to cool off to room temperature.
  6. Add melted white chocolate to the butter mixture and stir well to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours. While the mixture is cooling in the fridge stir it a few times so the fat from the butter doesn't separate on top. Make sure you stir it often especially during the first 30 minutes, otherwise the butter will separate and harden.
  7. Remove mixture from fridge, let it come to room temperature so its easy to work with.
  8. Using a small ice cream scoop or a measuring spoon, scoop the mixture and roll into balls, roll into powdered sugar and place on waxed paper. Repeat the process.
  9. If the truffles stick to your hand, dust your hands with powdered sugar.
  10. Truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 7-10 days. Or they can be frozen for longer storage for 2-3 months.
  11. Don't store truffles at room temperature as they will lose their shape, or melt due to the high butter content.
  12. Enjoy!
