White Mint Truffles

Hello, simple. This recipe for homemade truffles is full of peppermint flavor, smooth white chocolate truffle filling, and offers up a bit of dark chocolate, too.

Ingredients

1/4
cup heavy cream
8
ounces white chocolate chips OR a white chocolate candy bar chopped into small pieces
1
peppermint candy cane, crushed
3
ounces good quality dark chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1 Pour your cream into a large microwave-safe bowl, then microwave it just until it begins to boil, about 50-90 seconds.
  • 2 Remove the bowl from the microwave then stir in the white chocolate chips.
  • 3 Whisk until the chocolate is smooth. You can return the mixture to the microwave if needed until the perfect texture is achieved.
  • 4 Stir in the crush candy cane, just until combined, then place the mixture in the fridge to cool, for about 15-20 minutes.
  • 5 Remove the white chocolate truffle mixture from the fridge. Use a small spoon to scoop about a teaspoon of the mixture into your hands, then quickly roll it into a ball. Place on a piece of wax or parchment paper until all the mixture is rolled into balls.
  • 6 In a small, microwave-safe bowl, heat the dark chocolate chips for 30 seconds, stir, then return to the microwave for another 30 seconds. Continue to zap and stir just until the chocolate is smooth and melty.
  • 7 Place 24 small candy wrappers into a mini muffin tin. Spoon a small amount of melted dark chocolate into the bottom of each candy wrapper. Place a white chocolate truffle ball on top of the chocolate, then drizzle just enough chocolate over the white chocolate truffle to cover it completely. Sprinkle with crushed candy cane, if desired. Allow to cool completely at room temperature until ready to serve.

White Chocolate Mint Truffles

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Save money and wow your people with these easy homemade White Mint Truffles.


There is nothing quite so indulgent as a chocolate truffle. Just say it.

Chocolate truffle.

I bet you couldn't help but say it with the slightest French accent, huh? Yeah, it happens to the best of us.

Chocolate truffles aren't just for the French, though, ya know? You can make them at home with four totally easy ingredients and in less than an hour.

Here's how to stir up a batch of our exclusive White Mint Truffles that feature a smooth, white chocolate center, creamy dark chocolate shell, and little bits of peppermint candy cane.

All you gotta do is heat a bit of heavy cream in a bowl, then stir in some white chocolate chips.

You can also use a white chocolate candy bar, which I think makes even more gorgeous truffle centers, but sometimes they are hard to find. So don't beat yourself up. White chips will do if you can't find 8 ounces of a white chocolate candy bar.

White Chocolate for Truffles Recipe

Toss in some crushed candy canes. Finger licking encouraged.

Candy Cane Pieces in White Chocolate

Melt a bit of high-quality dark chocolate, then drizzle a bit of it into the bottom of a small candy wrapper.

Drizzle Chocolate into Cups

Once your white truffle mixture is finished, just pop it into the fridge until it hardens, then scoop it into tiny little balls. You don't want them too big, or else there won't be room for the chocolate shell on top.

White Chocolate Truffle Centers

Yep, that chocolate shell. You want to save room for it now, don't you? Clever you.

Top Truffles with Candy Cane Pieces

Sprinkle with crushed candy canes for that extra oomph of peppermint flavor.

Finished Chocolate Truffles

Then cool, serve, and share. Or don't share. Just practice that French accent. "Chocolate. Truffles." You're gonna need it!
