White Chocolate ‘Mummy’ Truffles

Get busy in the kitchen with your little ones this Halloween and create some White Chocolate ‘Mummy’ Truffles! Not only are they on theme, but they’re a delicious treat!


200 g white chocolate
1/4 cup cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup desiccated coconut
200 g white chocolate melts
1 black writing icing


  1. Place chocolate and cream in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir through vanilla and coconut. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm.
  2. With damp hands, roll teaspoon-size balls of truffle mixture and place on a tray. Freeze for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt white chocolate melts in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water
  3. Remove truffle balls from freezer. One at a time, dip balls in melted chocolate to coat, allowing excess to drip off. Place on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper. When you have coated all of the balls and the chocolate coating has set, spoon remaining melted chocolate into a zip-lock bag. Snip a tiny corner off the end and drizzle over truffles to create ‘bandages’. Usewriting icing to dot on eyes.
