Raspberry Truffle Recipe

These Raspberry Truffles are the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth! Whether you’re making them for the holidays or for a special someone, this easy truffle recipe is sure to impress! Perfectly creamy centers are complemented beautifully by the rich bittersweet chocolate exterior – a perfect balance of flavors and textures!

The centers are extra creamy thanks to the addition of a small amount of butter added to the white chocolate ganache. The ganache is then infused with the tangy flavor of raspberry with the addition of freeze dried raspberries. I chose to go with a bittersweet chocolate exterior but for an extra sweet indulgence, make them with semi-sweet or milk chocolate!

  • freeze-dried raspberries – Adds the tangy raspberry flavor to the truffles. Make sure to process the raspberries into a fine powder and then use a sieve to remove the seeds. The amount you need will depend on your own preferences and how strong the raspberry flavor is. You can find freeze dried raspberries online or in the nuts and dried fruits section at your local grocery store.
  • white chocolate – You can use either white chocolate chips or a white chocolate bar to make the ganache center. Use high-quality white chocolate for the best taste and texture.
  • unsalted butter – I love adding a bit of butter to my truffles as it adds richness and helps to make the truffles smooth and creamy.
  • heavy cream – This is one of the primary ingredients for the white chocolate ganache center and creates an ultra-creamy, smooth and silky truffle.
  • bittersweet chocolate – This will be used to coat the truffles. It provides a rich, chocolate flavor that perfectly complements the sweet white chocolate and tart raspberries. Use high-quality bittersweet chocolate for the best taste and texture. Semi-sweet chocolate can also be used.

The texture and flavor of the truffles can be affected by the type and quality of ingredients used. Using high-quality white chocolate, freeze-dried raspberries, and bittersweet chocolate will ensure the best taste and texture in your truffles.

How To Make Raspberry Truffles

These truffles are simple to make but do require a couple hours of chilling time so plan accordingly.

  1. Raspberries. Pulse the freeze-dried raspberries in a food processor until they form a fine powder. Sift the raspberry powder through a sieve to remove the seeds.
  2. White Chocolate Ganache. In a large heatproof bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and butter. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over low heat until it simmers, being careful to not let it boil. Pour the hot heavy cream over the white chocolate and butter in the bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir the mixture until the chocolate and butter have melted and combined smoothly.
  3. Raspberry Flavor. Add about 1/3 cup of the raspberry powder to the white chocolate ganache and stir until combined. Taste the mixture and then add more raspberry powder as needed.
  4. Chill. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or until the mixture has firmed up enough to form into balls.
  5. Form. Once the mixture has firmed up, use a heaping teaspoon to scoop it out and roll into a ball using your hands. Place the ball on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make approximately 24 balls. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  6. Coating. Melt the bittersweet chocolate in a large bowl using short bursts in the microwave or by setting the bowl over a double boiler. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate using a dipping tool or two forks, tapping off any excess chocolate and returning to the tray to set up.
  7. Garnish. Sprinkle some of the remaining raspberry powder or chocolate jimmies on top of the truffles before the chocolate has set up if you like. Enjoy!

If you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the freeze-dried raspberries with a rolling pin or place them in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

Trish’s Tips and Tricks

Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect Raspberry Truffles:

  • Make sure to use high-quality white chocolate and bittersweet chocolate for the best taste and texture.
  • Process the freeze-dried raspberries into a fine powder and remove the seeds for a smooth center.
  • Refrigerate the truffles for at least 2 hours to allow them to firm up before coating in chocolate.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or a teaspoon to measure out the truffle mixture for consistency in size.
  • Tap off any excess chocolate when dipping before placing them on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • For a finishing touch, consider topping some of the truffles with a sprinkle of raspberry powder or a drizzle of melted chocolate or even some chocolate jimmies before the chocolate has set up.
  • If the bittersweet chocolate for the coating becomes too thick, add a small amount of vegetable oil or shortening to thin it out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use fresh raspberries instead of freeze-dried raspberries?

No, fresh raspberries would not work in this recipe as they contain too much moisture. Freeze-dried raspberries are the best option as they provide a strong raspberry flavor without adding extra moisture.

Can I use milk chocolate instead of bittersweet chocolate for the coating?

Absolutely but just keep in mind that the truffles will be even sweeter. Semi-sweet chocolate would be another option.

How should the truffles be stored?

Raspberry Truffles can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Can I use a different type of freeze-dried fruit besides raspberries?

Absolutely! This recipe is delicious strawberries and feel free to experiment with other freeze dried fruits as well!
