Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together 1 1/3 cups shredded coconut, sugar, and ricotta cheese to form a dough-like texture. Divide into 16 portions. Roll each portion into a ball, pressing one almond each into the center of each; cool in freezer for 20 minutes.
  2. Place the white chocolate in a large stainless steel bowl and set over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt. While the chocolate is melting, stir in the heavy cream. Use a toothpick or fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate mixture. Arrange coated truffles on a platter. Sprinkle 1/4 cup coconut over the truffles while the chocolate is still melted. Cool in refrigerator until the chocolate coating solidifies.

I made these for the third time last week and agin they were loved by all. My top tip is to put cut the coconut first to make it a little finer and perhaps toast half of it so you get a bit of contrast. Try them people!

These were pretty good but I just didn't care for the texture of the filling. It was grainy and too moist.

Have to add my 2 cents- these are fabulous!! I like them with dark or milk chocolate more than white, but adding a white drizzle to the dark/milk coating is very pretty. I also tried just drizzling dark & white over the balls without dipping, which is very nice. Yum! I'm thinking about plopping an almond on the top for the next batch.
