Ingredients for Making This Strawberry Truffle Recipe
- White chocolate — You can use chocolate chips or a chocolate bar. Make sure to chop it finely, so it melts easily.
- Heavy cream — This is important for the smooth yet firm texture of the truffles.

- Vanilla extract — Quality is important! Having a good brand of vanilla extract makes a big difference in the final taste of your Strawberry Chocolate Truffles.

Tips & Tricks
- I used chocolate chips, but if you have a white chocolate bar it will melt even smoother.
- You can also use milk or dark chocolate if you prefer. Any chocolate will pair well with the strawberries.
- Using a small cookie scoop will give you nice, smooth truffles. I recommend using a scoop rather than forming the truffles with a spoon or your hands.

Frequently Asked Questions
You bet! You’ll follow the same instructions, just swap out the white chocolate chips or bar for milk or dark chocolate.
There is no need to fire up the oven for this Strawberry Truffle Recipe! The mixture will come together in a saucepan on the stove then set in the refrigerator.
The process of freeze-drying strawberries removes the moisture from the fruit to give the pieces a nice crunch. That’s why they go so perfectly with the smooth chocolate of the truffles.
Unfortunately, fresh strawberries won’t work for this recipe. The fruit has too much water so that the pieces won’t stick to the chocolate.
The heavy whipping cream is essential for creating the smooth yet firm texture of the truffles. I do not recommend substituting a different form of dairy, or you risk the truffles not firming up.
A truffle is a round treat made from a thick, rich mixture of chocolate and cream. They are often confused with bonbons, which are similar in size and shape but may contain fillings like caramel or buttercream. Truffles are chocolate all the way through.
Yes they do. Because they’re made with heavy cream, you don’t want to leave them at room temperature for too long.
