    Default Does anyone know where I can get white choc truffe balls?

    Hi all,

    So Im making a coconut cheesecake for mothers day, but the recipe calls for coconut coated white choc truffle balls.

    Ive never noticed these, and was wondering if any of you lovely ladies would know where I could find some.

    I havent noticed them around at woolies or the like, the only ones I can think of are the white ferrero ones, but Im sure they are not the ones for this recipe.

    Pls help, otherwise I have to find a new recipe and I soooo love cheeecake and coconut!!

    Can you just make the truffles yourself?

    thanks guys, I just thought that it might have been easy and they would be at coles or woolies.

    If no one else has seen them around, than I guess I might just have to make them!

    David Jones usually have them in their chocolate counters where you can hand pick them and buy them individually.

    Failing that you could 'cheat' and buy some white chocolate Lindt balls, roll them in some melted chocolate and then roll in coconut.

    I think Uniquey's idea is a good one if you can't find anything else.

    I'm intrigued btw.
    Care to share the recipe, it sounds wonderful!!

    Raffaelo's or the Lindt balls would do the trick as has been mentioned but if you want to make them yourself, they're incredibly easy..

    Whack a packet (or two depending and how many you need) of cream cheese in a blender with a packet (or two) of white chocolate Tim Tams. As an optional extra, you could add a teaspoon of alcohol like white rum. I dont bother as they are lovely without it. Blend it all up until combined, roll teaspoon fulls of mixture into ball shapes and roll in coconut. Refridgerate until you're ready to use. Easy easy peasy.
