Pamper yourself with the elegant taste of white chocolate truffles. Why shouldn't you?
If you think you will feel guilty just tell yourself, "At least there is no caffeine!" :)
You can order white truffles online at Dan's Chocolates. Buy in bulk or buy a box!
You can also get white truffles from Fannie May Candies if you enjoy that old favorite. There used to be a Fannie May shop just down the road from where I went to Bible college.
We couldn't help splurging on a rare treat from time to time.
But, those aren't the only places you can find these delectable treats. Here are a few more gorgeous choices to dazzle you...
Actually, you could just make your own chocolate truffles covered in white chocolate. Seriously, this wonderful recipe is, "oh so simple" to prepare, but the results are scrumptious. You will be a hit if you haul these along to a gathering of friends.
For ease in making your chocolate truffles, look for the delicious Wilbur or Merckens wafers at Candyland Crafts. They also carry the bars if you prefer. It is not at all difficult to chop or shave the chocolate to your liking.
Place chocolate in small mixing bowl. In small saucepan, simmer cream over medium-high heat until steaming, stirring constantly.
Pour cream over chocolate, cover, and let stand 3-5 minutes.Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add vanilla (and liqueur, if using), stirring well.
Cover and refrigerate until firm enough to hold its shape (about 2 hours).
Form balls from mixture and roll in nuts or toffee to coat.
For added eye appeal, balls can be placed in mini muffin papers or candy cups. (You'll find the paper candy cups at Candyland Crafts too, along with cello favor bags if you want to give them as gifts).
Store your white chocolate truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks - if they last that long!
