White Chocolate Raspberry Coconut Truffles

So after making these white chocolate raspberry blondies, I was obsessed with the white the chocolate / raspberry / coconut butter combination.

As soon as I took a bite of the blondies, I put my apron back on and started making these. The raspberry sauce is a bit fussy, but you really don’t want raspberry seeds in your truffles. It’s just not pleasant.

Does anyone know why these came out kind of purple? Some kind of chemical thing? They were supposed to be pink. Red + white + off white does not equal purple. 

These are creamy, but not super creamy like your average chocolate and cream truffles. And the coconut taste isn’t strong, but it’s still there. If you like the texture of shredded coconut, go ahead and throw some of that in there.

White Chocolate Raspberry Coconut Truffles

  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Ready in:
  • Yield: 24 balls


  • 8 ounces (225 grams) frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 120 grams (4.2 ounces) homemade coconut butter (not coconut oil!)
  • 400 grams (16 ounces) white chocolate, chopped


  1. Cook the raspberries in a small saucepan over medium heat until reduced to about 6 tablespoons (about 3 - 5 minutes).
  2. Run this through a food mill into a medium pot. Add the chopped white chocolate and coconut butter and mix together until thoroughly combined and the chocolate is melted.
  3. Place in the fridge for 1 - 2 hours or until it's firm enough to roll into balls. I rolled mine into about 24 balls, each about 1 inch. Store in the fridge, although I let mine at room temperature for about a week and they were absolutely fine.
  4. If desired, pipe with melted white chocolate, microwaved in 30 seconds increments until melted.

    I made these a week ago one night when I "needed" something sweet. They turned out really great with a very pleasant magenta color. I love white chocolate but find it achingly sweet, so the tart raspberries were the perfect match. I actually rolled mine in unsweetened cocoa powder since I love chocolate+raspberry and to take the sweetness back a notch. Divine. My friend came over, fell in love with them, and we immediately went out and bought ingredients for her to make them for Valentines this week for work. I'm thinking about bringing some into a meeting at work next week as well, dipped in dark chocolate. Thanks for the recipe! (I followed you over from Chocolate and Carrots)

      I'm so happy that you and your friend liked them! And good to know what color yours came out. I still can't figure out how mine came out almost purple. Oh, and cocoa powder is a great idea. I'll have to try that next time! Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate that you took the time to leave some! And thanks for letting me know that you found me over at Caroline's. :)

    Anon – You dumped all the leftover ingredients from the blondie recipe? Hahaha. Well, I hope that works. :) I cooked the raspberries for about 5 minutes… I'll add that to the recipe! Thanks for pointing that out. Did you like the blondies? Sure hope so. :) Thanks for your comment!

    Hi!! Thank you so much for this recipe! I just made them and theyre in the fridge now:) I didn't use the exact measurements you used (basically I just dumped all the leftover ingredients from your blondie recipe) so I'm not sure how they'll turn out… And I dont have a food mill so its not exact smooth haha. But I love raspberries and coconut and white chocolate so I'm sure they will be yummy! Just a question though, approximately how long do you keep the raspberries on the saucepan for?? Thanks again!

    Evan – What?! I feel like I'm constantly making coconut butter. I wish I had your overabundance problem. :)

    I have so much storebought coconut butter I need to get rid of and no ideas what to do with it. This recipe looks delicious and fantastic!

    Flavia – Oh, good! Love having matching food / blog. Thanks for letting me know. :)

    Claire – Thank you. :)

    Kathryn – Thanks! I like to keep things simple.

    Christina – Or you can make your own! There's a link on how to do that in the recipe. Although I've heard the Artisana stuff is creamier. No store bought coconut butter in Germany (at least that I've found) so I'm totally content with homemade. :)

    Ashley – Thanks! Isn't white chocolate the best? I don't understand why there are so many white chocolate haters out there. I hope you'll like them!

    Maureen – Thank you very much! I hope you like them. :)

    Lora – Thanks!

    Anna – Thanks! And yeah, it's a good one to start with because it's so easy. :) Not that truffles are all that difficult!

    MMm these look so yummy! White chocolate, coconut, and raspberries?? Yes, please! I've never made truffles before but this would be a great recipe to start with!

    These look absolutely incredible! I have never had coconut butter before, but after seeing these I need to get my hands on some! :)

    Woah, these sound amazing Erin! It's such a great flavour combination and I love how few ingredients these have!

    Miryam – I don't really think they taste sinful. I think they actually taste quite light. :) Maybe because of the coconut? I don't know. But they won't make you feel naughty!

    Jill – Thank you!

    Amy – What I figured out is that you gotta do it really quickly. If you try to do it slowly, it's a mess. But quick and sloppy works here!

    Jessica – I hope you like them!

    JulieD and Marta – Thanks. :)

    Flavia – They do have a hint of coconut! It's not super strong, but it's there. :)

    Lauren – Thank you! Happy the purple color doesn't turn you off. :)

    Cassie – Yeah! The blondies are my favorite. I hope you can try them!

    Heidi – Thank you! They looked so incredibly boring without the white chocolate. Not that they look exciting with it, but I think I've figured out that balls always need piping. Other they're so ugly and boring!

    Sarah – Thanks! The purple thing is weird, though. But you're right, no cause not to eat them. :)

    Sally – Haha. That second sentence made me laugh. I don't know why. It just sounds funny. :)

    Becca – Oh ,come on. :) At least eat fruit! Vegetables are nasty, I know, but fruit is sweet! And thanks. :)

    Anna – Thanks!

    Natasha – What I do is fill it almost to the top and then do it a few minutes at a time and when it gets too warm, I give it a rest and then start like 30 minutes later. But I don't want you to kill your processor! I use desiccated but shredded should take less time. I hope you can try!

    Barbara – Aww, thanks. :) Happy you like the color! And I responded to your frying comment. But really, I LOVE fried food. Sadly.

    Erin you're killing me, all these things look amaaaazing. I need to make me some coconut butter. Just a little worried I'll burn out my food processor! (he's old!)

    I have to say, I have no idea why these are purple, but that definitely wouldn't stop me from eating them! I love the white chocolate and raspberry combination too :)

    Wow, these are so pretty! I love the color even if it doesn't really make sense, haha. I especially love the white chocolate over top – yum!

    You always wow me Erin! These look so good! I always see the frozen raspberries (or any other other fruit) at the grocery store but nothing comes to my mind…now these will! Do they have a hint of coconut flavor? I love coconut.

    Wow these too look fantastic. They seem really simple to make yet super luxurious. I am sure these taste sinful :-) probably not good for my thighs!! Love the pick light color.
