  • 6 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 3 (4-ounce) packages white chocolate baking bars, finely chopped (we tested with Ghirardelli)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 teaspoons grapefruit rind
  • 1 (1-pound) package vanilla bark coating
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves (do not chop)


  1. Bring whipping cream to a simmer in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; add white chocolate, butter, and grapefruit rind, stirring until smooth. Pour white chocolate mixture into a small metal bowl; cover and chill 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
  2. Shape white chocolate mixture into 1 1/4" balls (about 1 tablespoon); cover and chill truffles 8 hours or until firm.
  3. Melt vanilla bark according to package directions. Cool. Dip truffles in coating; place on wax paper. Sprinkle with thyme leaves while coating is wet. Let stand until firm. Store truffles in refrigerator.
  4. Truffle Tips:
  5. * Use good quality white chocolate for truffle making. You'll taste the difference.
  6. * Citrus and fresh herbs are a nice flavor pairing. To get fine grapefruit rind, use a Microplane grater.
  7. * Fresh thyme leaves look festive sprinkled onto these candies. To remove leaves easily, just strip them from the woody stem (no chopping needed).
  8. * Use a cookie scoop to shape truffle balls evenly.
