  • Microwave bittersweet chocolate, cream and butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min., stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted; cover. Freeze 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Use teaspoon to scoop and roll chocolate mixture into 20 balls, each about 1 inch in diameter; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Freeze 20 min.
  • Microwave 3 oz. white chocolate in clean microwaveable 1-cup measuring cup or small bowl 1 to 1-1/2 min., stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Set aside. Repeat with remaining white chocolate in separate bowl; stir in food colorings. Cool chocolates completely.
  • Dip 10 chocolate balls in tinted chocolate, turning to evenly coat each ball. Return to baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chocolate balls and untinted chocolate. Decorate orange truffles with coconut to resemble pumpkins. Use decorating gel to draw eyes and mouths on white truffles to resemble ghosts. Refrigerate 30 min. or until chocolate is firm. Keep refrigerated.

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Tint Coconut

Place BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Add 1 to 2 drops each of red and yellow food coloring; close bag and shake until coconut is evenly tinted.

For Easier Dipping

Use a toothpick to dip the truffle into melted white chocolate; shake off excess chocolate then place truffle on waxed-paper. This may leave just a small hole on top that can be covered with a tiny dab of chocolate.

    This is definitely not the easiest recipe but I still am satisfied with how it turned out. I left the mixture in the freezer for 1 hour each time and it still melted when I was forming and dipping the balls. IT IS MESSY! Also, make sure the white chocolate mixture is completely cooled before dipping the balls (about 30-45 min). When doing the coconut balls, put the coconut on the balls immediately after dipping them in the orange mixture. So much easier. I would recommend adding two more Tbsp of coconut and two more white chocolate squares to each of the white chocolate mixtures. I didn't have enough for all of the balls. Overall I am satisfied with how this recipe turned out visually, see my user photo, and I can't wait to taste them tonight at my Halloween party!

    I will admit, the truffle making process itself WAS a little difficult. I had to keep placing the truffle center back into the freezer during the dipping process because they were melting in the warm chocolate. With that being said, the recipe is super delicious and they are super adorabl with easily made adaptions. I recomend trying to make them because people will enjoy them regardless of how perfect they are in the end.
