Strawberry Truffles Ingredients

Strawberry Truffles raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon strawberry extract
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 drop of pink food coloring
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar

PRO TIP:

Some strawberry truffle recipes incorporate fresh strawberries that are cooked down. This technique will yield a very soft gooey truffle filling and is not suitable for this recipe. Using strawberry extract adds a great punch of distinct strawberry flavor.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

NUTS: Instead of the powdered sugar in this truffle recipe, you could roll these in crushed walnuts or pistachios for an added crunch.

How to Make This Strawberry Truffles Recipe

STEP ONE: Add the white chocolate chips to a medium bowl and set them aside.

STEP TWO: In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

STEP THREE: As soon as the mixture comes to a simmer, pour it over the white chocolate chips. Allow the mixture to sit for 1 to 2 minutes to soften the chocolate.

STEP FOUR: Add the extracts and food coloring and whisk the melted chocolate mixture until smooth and all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Once all of the ingredients have been stirred together, the mixture may separate (the melted butter, in particular), but continue stirring (either with a whisk or a silicone spatula) until the mixture incorporates fully.

STEP FIVE: If needed, heat the mixture for 15 seconds at a time in the microwave if the chocolate has not melted all the way.

STEP SIX: Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

PRO TIP:

Refrigerating for 30 minutes will yield a softer “dough” that is easier to scoop and roll but will then need to be refrigerated longer for the formed truffles to harden. If you refrigerate the melted white chocolate mixture for about an hour, it will be thicker and harder to scoop – a metal cookie scoop (or a metal spoon) will work fine. Once you have rolled these scoops into balls and coated them in powdered sugar, they will likely still be nice and well-formed and ready to eat immediately.

STEP SEVEN: Scoop 1 to 1½ tablespoons of the strawberry truffle mixture and form into balls, then roll the balls in the powdered sugar. Place on a baking sheet lined with a piece of parchment paper.
