Coconut & lime truffles

Coconut and lime truffles

Makes 15


60g butter

A pinch of salt

Zest of 2 limes

3 tbsp double cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

180g white chocolate chips (or bars, broken into pieces)

A few drops of green food colouring (optional)

200g desiccated coconut


  1. In a small saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter, salt and lime zest. Stir in the double cream and vanilla and bring to a simmer.
  2. Place the chocolate in a bowl. Pour the hot cream mixture over the top and allow to sit for one minute, then stir until smooth. If desired, stir in 1-2 drops of green food colouring to create a pale green colour.
  3. Cover and allow to set in the fridge for five minutes or until firm enough to roll.
  4. Take one tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball. Continue until all the mixture has been used.
  5. Place the desiccated coconut on a plate and roll the truffles in the coconut to coat.
