Strawberry Truffles


Last week, we’ve talked about Mocha Truffles and how amazing it is to have those rich mocha truffles melting in our mouth whenever we take a bite of it. This week, we’re still going to discuss about truffles but with a slight change in the flavour and the colour. These strawberry truffles are perfect for Valentine Days or as a gift for someone’s celebrating birthday or even as an anniversary’s present. This recipe makes about 18 truffles



Ingredients :


8 oz. of cream cheese at room temperature

5 oz. of white chocolate

4 cups of confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp. of grated fresh ginger root

18 medium fresh strawberries

1/4 cup finely minced crystallized ginger (get it in a gourmet food store or well stocked supermarket)

1/2 cup toasted coconut

1/2 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts



Preparation Instructions of Strawberry Truffles :


  1. Melt white choclate in the top of a double boiler, let cool.


  1. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and ginger root until smooth.


  1. Add melted white chocolate and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour or until easy to handle.


  1. Use a small melon baller (or small spoon) to scoop out the center of each strawberry, half way down each fruit. Pat strawberry dry.


  1. Put a little crystallized ginger into each strawberry.


  1. Shape the cheese mixture around the fruit.


  1. Coat one end in the toasted coconut, the other in the pistachio nuts.


  1. Place truffles in candy cups and chill until serving time.
