Belgian White Chocolate Truffles

A decadent blend of Belgian white hot cocoa mix and white chocolate, crisp on the outside and smooth, melt-in-your-mouth on the inside - what more could you ask for in a winter treat!?

Prep Time: 3 hours

Servings: 20-24


  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (or chopped white chocolate)
  • 5 tablespoons butter (diced)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: flavorings (1/2 teaspoon extract of choice)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup & 4 spoonfulls of McSteven's Belgian White Hot Chocolate Mix
  • 3/4 pound white chocolate candy coating
  • Toppings of choice (sprinkles, cocoa powder, chopped nuts, etc.)


  1. Combine white chocolate chips (or chopped white chocolate), butter, cream, and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted, about 1-2 minutes. Because white chocolate is prone to overheating, it is a good idea to stop heating before all the chips are melted and simply stir until the residual heat melts all the chocolate.
  2. Spoon in four spoonfulls of McSteven's Belgian White Hot Chocolate Mix and mix until combined.

  1. If you are using flavors, stir them in now.
  2. Place plastic wrap over top of white chocolate mixture and refrigerate until firm enough to scoop, about 2 hours.
  3. Use a teaspoon or small candy scoop to form 1-inch balls.
  4. Dust hands with a mixture of powdered sugar and McSteven's Belgian White Hot Chocolate Mix and roll the truffles between palms to make them round.
  5. place balls on waxed or parchment paper-lined baking sheet and refrigerate while you prepare the white candy coating.
  6. Place white candy coating in microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds.
  7. Use dipping tools or a fork to dip each white chocolate truffle in the melted candy coating. Hold over the bowl so the excess coating can drip off, then place back on baking sheet.

  1. Top truffles with topping of choice if so desired.

  1. Repeat process with remaining truffles.
  2. Refrigerate the tray briefly to set the coating (10-15 minutes)
  3. Enjoy! (best at room temperature)
