White Chocolate Coconut Truffles

Do you like desserts and special treats!? For the holidays this year I made some yummy white chocolate coconut truffles – and they turned out great!

When I shared the gifts we gave for Christmas this year, I mentioned that I had made some yummy truffles.  Today I’m going to link to all the different recipes that I made AND share my own concoction for some white chocolate coconut truffles.  Let’s dive in!

A few years ago I had made a bunch of truffles for Christmas, and I wanted to do the same thing this year (but with different flavour combinations).

I wanted to make 5 different kinds, but in the end, only 4 worked out:

Chocolate Mascarpone Truffles (my go-to!)
Turtle Cookie Balls (good, but didn’t really remind me of Turtles)
Nanaimo Balls (super yummy, but mine ended up HUGE!)

And these white chocolate coconut truffles:

I actually used the same topping from the Nanaimo balls (which is why there are dark specks), and sort of based my recipe on the Turtle balls – but they turned out great!

For the filling, I used some graham cracker crumbs because it’s what I had on-hand, but you could substitute for vanilla cookies if you wanted whiter truffles.

I got around 40 of each flavour of truffle, and had them packaged into 8 different containers for friends/family (with 12 each).  We of course kept all the leftovers, and they were delicious :)

Oh, and I did have a bit of a panic when I was making these (my last batch) and I ran out of white chocolate!  I had to quickly run to the store for another package, but it all worked out in the end.

Notes

I used unsweetened coconut. If mixture is too wet/doesn't form nice balls, add a bit more coconut and/or icing sugar if needed.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for white chocolate coconut truffles, I’ll definitely be making them again!  I mean, probably not soon because the Husband wants a break from all the holiday desserts… but maybe for the next holiday or special occasion!?

Oh, and I mentioned that one recipe didn’t set – I wanted to make some Butterscotch Skor truffles (using the Mascarpone recipe), but for some reason, it stayed in liquid form.  In the end, I added a bunch of melted chocolate, placed it flat on a tray until it set and tried to pass it off as fudge :)
