White Chocolate and Dried Fruit Truffles

If you’re craving something sweet, delicious, nutritious, and easy to make, these White Chocolate and Dried Fruit Truffles are a perfect choice. Once prepared, you can refrigerate them and enjoy these delightful treats for several days whenever the mood strikes.

The truffles boast a rich flavor from the walnuts and dried fruit, complemented by a hint of rum. Coating them in chocolate, cocoa, or coconut flakes makes them even more irresistible. They also make wonderful homemade gifts for holidays or special occasions.

These White Chocolate and Dried Fruit Truffles can be made in advance, making them ideal for any party or family gathering.

How to make white chocolate and dried fruit truffles

Begin by placing the apricots, dates, raisins, and rum extract in a large bowl. Add a little water to the bowl and let the mixture soak for about 2 hours.

Next, drain the soaked fruit mixture well and transfer it to the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter to the processor and blend until a paste forms. Once the paste is smooth, transfer it to a large mixing bowl.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate over a bain-marie (a bowl set over a pot of simmering water). Once melted, add the chocolate and walnuts to the fruit paste. Stir the mixture well to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

After the mixture is well combined, shape it into balls using about 1 round teaspoon of the mixture for each ball. Roll each ball in your choice of coconut, chocolate flakes, or cocoa powder to coat.

Finally, place the coated balls in an airtight container and refrigerate them for about 2 hours before serving. Enjoy your delicious and nutritious fruit and nut balls!
