Raw White Chocolate Truffles with Coconut 3 Ways

Raw Truffles

Rawmazing Raw Truffles

I have a sweet tooth. I am not even going to try to pretend I don’t. Just check out the dessert section! I envy people who say, I don’t really care about dessert because for me, a meal just doesn’t feel complete until I have that little pop of sweet at the end.

The funny thing is it doesn’t have to be a big sweet finish, like a piece of cake, or pie. That is almost always too much. Ice cream, on the other hand, is always welcome.

It is always those little cravings that lead me into a new recipe journey. Knowing that I wanted to have that little sweet treat, but wanting it to be made from healthy ingredients (not white sugar, processed chocolate, etc.) I put together this recipe for raw white chocolate truffles. The best part is that at one point in the recipe you can divide up the mixture and flavor it how ever you want!

I actually did three different truffles from the batch. Each has a base of raw white cacao butter and coconut. I left the first third alone (to emphasize the white chocolate flavor). To the second third, I added organic peppermint extract and to the last third, I added organic almond extract.

Dipping them in a batch of raw chocolate was the frosting on the cake. The thin layer gives you just enough chocolate tast without overwhelming the truffles. Be warned, you will have extra chocolate. But we can always find something to do with extra chocolate, can’t we?

A quick note: The dough is a little tricky to work with if you want to make balls. You need to squeeze it into ball shape… transferring from hand to hand a few times to get it to hold. If you don’t want to putz with this step, just press the mixture into a parchment lined glass pan and pat it down firmly. After chilling, you can easily cut it into squares and dip in the chocolate.

    Do you have a recipe for truffles made with something other than coconut? I love the ones I made with coconut but my husband has this thing about texture : /
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful raw recipes! I have tried several & all have delighted! I especially love your pictures, it helps to see the step by step.

      I would suggest looking through the dessert categorie under the recipes tab on top. Cheers!

    Oops – just noticed these are white chocolate COCONUT truffles – uh yeah, methinks they will taste like coconut! 🙂
    If you can put me onto a plain white chocolate version, I’d be most grateful! 🙂

    Susan, thank you! I LOVE white chocolate– but my first thought when looking at this recipe is that this would taste more like a macaroon. Do you find this? I love coconut too, so not a problem — but am looking for something to hit that white chocolate sweet spot! 🙂

    J…it could but it won’t taste as good. Plus I haven’t tried it in this situation. Normally you can sub one out for the other but I would be careful here. Cheers!

    Does coconut oil work in place of the coconut butter?

    How many does the recipe above make? They look lovely and delectible for a wedding rehearseal dinner.

    Ant idea of calorie counts for any of these desserts? Like, the cookies or truffles?

    • Susan wrote on March 20, 2013

      I don’t do a calorie analysis but there are many places online that you can use. Cheers!

    I’ve just started getting into more a raw and sugar free lifestyle too – there might be some stuff on my blog that you like 🙂

    Hi Susan

    Are the truffles missing a sweetener ingredient?

    I’ve been loving your recipes for a long time now. You are so gifted and your presentation is beautiful. And your recipes always work! Thanks so much for sharing with us all.

      Yes! Thanks for the catch. I have corrected the recipe. Cheers!
