    1. For the filing: In a medium bowl, mix together coconut, sugar and ricotta cheese to form a dough. Divide into 16 portions.
    2. Roll each portion into a ball, pressing one almond each into the centre of each; cool in freezer for 20 minutes.
    3. 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 cream. Use a cocktail stick or fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate mixture.
    4. Arrange coated truffles on a platter. Sprinkle remaining coconut over the truffles while the chocolate is still melted. Cool in refrigerator until the chocolate coating hardens.

    super easy and super yummy - be careful not to make the truffles too large. they test better if they are smaller.  -  27 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Used different ingredients. Didn't have Ricotta cheese at the time so used fromage frais instead - still yummy!  -  29 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
