2 Tablespoons Raspberry Jam

White Chocolate Glaze
1 Cup White Chocolate Chips
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

Other Optional Toppings
Chocolate Sprinkles
Powdered Freeze Dried Raspberries (grind up in a food processor)
Cocoa Powder


Make The Chocolate Ganache 

  1. In a small bowl combine the semi sweet chocolate chips and raspberry jam; set aside
  2. In a small sauce pan warm the heavy whipping cream until it comes to a simmer
  3. Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for 2-3 minutes
  4. Slowly whisk the chocolate and heavy cream mixture until the chocolate is melted and smooth
  5. Cover the top of the chocolate ganache with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until the ganache has hardened
  6. Scoop the chocolate ganache into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet
  7. Once all the ganache is scooped, roll the ganache into balls and place back on the baking sheet

Truffle Toppings (Sprinkles, Powdered Freeze Dried Raspberries & Cocoa Powder)

  1. Right after you scoop the chocolate ganache and roll into balls, roll them in the chocolate sprinkles, powdered freeze dried strawberries or cocoa powder and place back in the refrigerator to allow the truffles to set

White Chocolate Coating 

  1. If you are dipping the truffles in white chocolate, place the ganache balls back in the refrigerator to set while you are warming the white chocolate
  2. In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the white chocolate and coconut oil
  3. Warm the chocolate in the microwave for 30 second increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth
  4. Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and dip each chocolate ganache ball into the white chocolate using a small fork or candy dipping tool
  5. Remove the ganache ball from the chocolate and place on a parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Continue dipping all of the chocolate ganache balls until all are covered in white chocolate
  7. Once the white chocolate coating is dry, drizzle the extra white chocolate over each truffle and garnish with the powdered freeze dried raspberries


How To Store Chocolate Truffles 
Keep chocolate truffles in an air tight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  Once you are ready to enjoy them, remove them from the refrigerator, place them in a serving bowl or platter and allow them to sit out for 10-20 minutes before enjoying!
