Will Truffles Melt at Room Temperature

Yes, truffles, especially those made with chocolate, have a melting point slightly below body temperature. At room temperature, especially in warmer conditions, truffles can soften and even melt. I recommend you store them in a cool place to maintain their shape and texture.

If you plan to serve or transport them in warm weather, keep them refrigerated until just before serving to make sure they hold their form.

Truffles vs. Bon Bons

Truffles and bonbons are both delectable confections, but they differ in composition and texture. Truffles typically feature a soft, ganache center made from chocolate and cream, often infused with various flavors like fruit, nuts or liqueurs. This center is then coated in chocolate, cocoa powder or nuts.

Bonbons, on the other hand, are bite-sized chocolates with a solid or praline center, which can include nuts, nougat or other fillings.

The term “bonbon” is more generic and can refer to any small, sweet confection.

While both are a luxurious chocolate experience, truffles are known for their velvety, melt-in-your-mouth texture, whereas bonbons showcase a more diverse range of textures, depending on their fillings.

How to Make White Chocolate Strawberry Truffles

Place the finely chopped white chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Grind the freeze-dried strawberries into a fine powder using a food processor or blender.

In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Do not boil. Pour the hot cream over the white chocolate. Let it sit for a minute to soften the chocolate.

Stir the mixture gently until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Add the unsalted butter, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir until everything is well combined. Mix in the finely ground freeze-dried strawberry powder. This adds both flavor and a lovely pink color. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture for at least 2-3 hours, or until it becomes firm.

Once the mixture is firm, use a spoon to scoop out small portions and roll them into balls. Work quickly to prevent the mixture from melting.

For the coating: Begin by melting the chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave at 30-second intervals until fully melted. Coat each truffle individually in the melted chocolate. Use a fork to let any excess chocolate drip off before placing them back on a baking sheet.
