Although I’ve made cake pops and cake balls many times, I don’t think I’ve ever made truffles before which is strange because they are one of my favorite things! These pink treats are great for Valentine’s Day and now that I know how to make fudge truffles, I am excited to make a milk chocolate version soon!
I purchased my ingredients from a small local grocery store and they did not sell pink frosting. If you can find pink frosting at a store near you, this step can be skipped. I used one container of vanilla frosting and mixed in a few drops of red food coloring to turn the frosting pink.
Melt one 12 oz bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave and add it to the frosting.
Stir until combined. It comes together quickly and it will look something like this. Scrape the mixture into a foil lined, greased pan and allow it to cool in the fridge until firm.
Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out some heart shaped fudge pieces. To make balls, cut small squares of the fudge and roll it into balls with your hands. Place the fudge hearts and balls on a pan in the freezer to harden for about 30 minutes. Melt 1/3 of a bag of white chocolate chips in a bowl. Dip the hardened fudge pieces into the melted chocolate. I inserted wooden skewers into the fudge to make the dipping easier. I stood the skewers up in a mason jar to allow the chocolate to harden. Then, I removed the skewer and added a dab of melted white chocolate to the hole where the skewer had been. Melt more white chocolate chips as needed.
Smooth and creamy on the inside with a rich chocolate shell on the outside!
