Snowball Truffles

These Snowball Truffles are a cheeky spin on the 1970's classic cocktail The Snowball. Advocaat and citrus flavours blend with white chocolate to create soft & creamy treats. They are festive and perfectly suited to Christmas.

  • 100 g/ 2/3 cup White chocolate - finely chopped
  • 5 tsp Advocaat
  • 3/4 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Lime juice
  • 2 tbsp Desiccated coconut


  • Gently melt the chocolate over a Bain Marie (I don't recommend the microwave method as white chocolate can quickly seize)
  • Once melted stir until completely smooth
  • Stir in the Advocaat followed by the lemon and lime juice
  • Let cool, cover and transfer to the fridge to firm up for at least 4 hours
  • Sprinkle the coconut into a small shallow bowl
  • Take teaspoonfuls of the ganache and roll into balls. Gently roll the truffles in the coconut until fully coated. Wash & dry your hands after rolling a few truffles if your hands get too sticky to roll the remaining truffles well
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Bring the truffles out an hour before serving to bring them back to room temperature


Refrigerators operate at various temperatures. If your ganache is too firm to scoop and roll, simply leave the ganache at room temperature for 30-60 minutes until it has softened sufficiently to roll.
