- Melt the first measure of white chocolate with the cream in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water – do not allow the base of the bowl to touch the water.
- Once melted, whisk in the raspberry powder and scrape the mixture into a shallow container, then refrigerate.
- Once cooled, scoop out teaspoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls. Place the balls onto a plastic-wrap lined tray and freeze for 30 minutes.
- Melt the white chocolate melts in bursts in the microwave, according to the packet instructions, or use the method described in the first step.
- Remove the truffles from the freezer. Skewer them one by one (with a toothpick or small skewer) and dip them in the melted white chocolate, twirling to coat then twirling again above the melted chocolate to remove any excess.
- Sprinkle with snowflakes or pistachios (or leave plain) and stand upright in containers (we used shot glasses) until cool and hard.
- Makes: 28-30
