Cranberry Pistachio White Chocolate Truffles


  • 11 oz. white chocolate – chopped into small pieces
  • 5 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon orange or vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped toasted pistachio
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar

  2. Over a double boiler melt finely chopped white chocolate, stirring casually until smooth and completely melted. DO NOT over heat the chocolate!!! It takes some time to melt completely, but do not heat above 105 F or the chocolate will separate and be unusable (if touched with finger, it will feel about the same temperature as your body)
  3. Remove from heat and using a rubber spatula gently stir in lukewarm mixture of butter and heavy cream into melted chocolate. NOTES!!!Butter and heavy cream mixture should be approximately the same temperature as melted chocolate when you combine them.
