About The Recipe

With all the delicious chocolate recipes we’ve been sharing leading up to Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t help but also share something for the white chocolate lovers out there! So, we went allllllll out with the white chocolate. I mean, does it get any better than a homemade truffle for Valentine’s Day?

We had just made a batch of Raspberry Jam because we had some raspberries starting to go bad and we needed something to with all of it..because we had a BIG batch!

Well, one of my favorite flavor combinations has always been raspberries and white chocolate. It’s a classic for a reason! The white chocolate balances out the tartness of the raspberries and creates something irresistible…but when you turn it into a truffle?

Ohmygosh. It’s so hard to eat only one!

Especially when you use our homemade raspberry jam. We add just a touch of lemon juice to the jam to tame some of that sugar. Though, trust me, it REALLY works with this delicious and creamy truffles.

(Full ingredient amounts and instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of the post)

For The Ganache:

  • White Chocolate
  • Heavy Cream

  • Raspberry Jam
  • Raspberry Liqueur
white chocolate chips, raspberry jam, heavy cream, raspberry liqueur, and corn syrup on marble surface

How To Make Raspberry White Chocolate Truffles

Step 1: Make the filling

Combine white chocolate and heavy cream in a large glass bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each, until the white chocolate is melted.

Stir in the corn syrup.

Add the raspberry jam and mix well.

Carefully, stir in the raspberry liqueur.

Step 2: Refrigerate and scoop

Transfer the mixture into a glass casserole and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until hardened, about 4-6 hours.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out 22 balls. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Roll each ball with a light dusting on powdered sugar on your hands. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 3: Melt the chocolate

For the coating, melt white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring in-between each, until chocolate is smooth. If your white chocolate is a too thick, add 1 – 1 ½ teaspoons of vegetable oil at a time until the chocolate loosens. You do NOT need to put it back in the microwave. Simply stir in the vegetable oil as needed.

Step 4: Dip and set

Dip the ganache into the melted white chocolate. Set on a line sheet pan and let the chocolate set.

What Kind of White Chocolate To Use

For this recipe, you need to use high quality white chocolate. No palm oil or kernel oil. This means you cannot use baking chips or candy melts. The white chocolate needs to be pure cocoa butter. You can actually tell if it is or not, not just by the ingredients, but by the color! Fake white chocolate will be a snow/pure white, whereas real white chocolate will be a much yellow in color.

Do I Need To Temper The Chocolate?

The best part of this recipe is that you don’t have to! While you totally can just temper the white chocolate, All you really need to do is mix vegetable oil and chocolate and melt it in the microwave. The vegetable oil gives the chocolate a beautiful shine to it and makes it really simple to reheat the white chocolate as necessary.

Best Raspberry Liqueur To Use

For us, we love using Chambord in this recipe! You can really use any raspberry liqueur that you love the flavor of. Though, if you want to make these truffles kid-friendly, you can definitely leave it out!

How To Store

Once the chocolate is set, these truffles can be placed in an airtight container and left at room temperature for 3-5 days. You can also refrigerate or freeze them!

  1. Last question….getting ready to temper the white chocolate but the recipe does not give the amount of vegetable oil to use. If you would please provide that, I will be a happy baker…

    1. Hi Cindy! I’m sorry about the oversight. All white chocolates melt differently. If you temper the chocolate, you don’t need to add anything to it. If you are simply melting, you might. If your chocolate seems too thick once it is melted, stir in small amounts of vegetable oil (1-1 1/2 tsp) at a time until you reach a good dipping consistency. I hope that clarifies things. If you need anything else, please let me know.

  2. These look amazing. Can you use seedless raspberry jam? There are members of my family that cannot eat seeds…..

    1. Hi Cindy! You can definitely use seedless raspberry jam in this recipe. Let us know if you have anymore questions! We hope you enjoy these truffles as much as we do 🥰 Xo, Caylie
