  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, divided
  • Extra shredded coconut for coating
  • Optional: Pinch of sea salt


  1. Prepare the Ganache:
    • In a heatproof bowl, add the white chocolate chips, heavy cream, and butter.
    • Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler) ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
    • Stir gently until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.
    • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and 1 cup of shredded coconut. Add a pinch of sea salt if desired for a flavor contrast.
  2. Chill the Mixture:
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until the ganache is firm enough to handle.
  3. Form the Truffles:
    • Using a melon baller or a small spoon, scoop out small portions of the chilled ganache.
    • Roll each portion between your palms to form smooth balls.
    • Roll the truffles in extra shredded coconut until evenly coated.
  4. Final Chill:
    • Place the coconut-coated truffles on a parchment-lined tray.
    • Chill in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes to set.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the truffles chilled, on a platter or in decorative mini cupcake liners.


  • For a more intense coconut flavor, consider toasting the shredded coconut lightly before adding it to the ganache.
  • If the ganache becomes too soft while rolling, chill it in the refrigerator for a few more minutes.
  • These truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
