What is the best white chocolate for melting?

There are many options out there for melting chocolate to dip truffles in, but we have a few requirements. It needs to melt quickly, smoothly and taste delicious. The product that matches all 3 of these is Ghirardelli melting wafers. You can buy these in the grocery store right by the chocolate chips. Look towards the top of the shelf and you’ll see 8 ounce bags of white, dark or milk chocolate wafers.

They melt so quickly in the microwave. The chocolate ends up smooth and not super thick which makes it easy to dip. I cannot say the same for other times I’ve tried to melt white chocolate chips or almond bark.

You can see what these wafers look like on Amazon but they are much cheaper in the store.

How to Make Easy Brownie Truffles

  • Mix. Take the brownies and cut all around the edges (removing any hard edges) and keeping only the soft brownies. Place the brownies into a food processor. Pulse to crumble the brownies. Add the cream cheese to the food processor and pulse until the brownies and cream cheese are fully incorporated.
  • Scoop. Using a tablespoon or a 1 inch cookie scoop, scoop the brownie mixture onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Place into the freezer for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Roll. Remove the cookie sheet and start rolling the brownie dough into 1 inch balls. (Doing this step without chilling the brownie mixture first won’t be easy. Make sure to chill the dough!) Place the round brownie dough balls back into the freezer for another 10 minutes.
  • Melt. Start melting the white chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl. I start with 30 seconds and stir. Then I do 15 second increments as needed until the chocolate is melted, stirring between each interval.

  • Dip. Dip the brownie truffles into the white chocolate, tapping to let any excess drip off. Place back on the cookie sheet. If adding sprinkles, do so now before the chocolate hardens. Continue to dip and sprinkle until all of the truffles are complete.

How to Store Brownie Truffles

The insides of the truffles will be very soft. We recommend refrigerating or freezing the truffles when you are not serving them. This will keep them fresh. Store them in an airtight container.
