Make someone's day today by presenting them with a box of these pretty Strawberries and Cream Truffle Hearts. Each little candy is bursting with strawberry flavor.
Strawberries and Cream Truffle Hearts are a delicious way to make someone’s day. Your mom would love to get a box of these pretty candies for Mother's Day. They'd be a great Valentine's Day gift too.
Each heart-shaped candy is made using both frozen and freeze-dried strawberries to give them a really wonderful strawberry flavor.
I chose to dip these truffles in white chocolate so they taste like strawberries and cream but you could also dip them in dark chocolate if you prefer.
The truffle filling is easy to make using frozen strawberries, sugar, heavy whipping cream, and freeze-dried strawberries. To make the candies heart-shaped you can pour the filling into small heart-shaped silicone molds or you can cut the hearts out using a cookie cutter.
Once the candies firm up it's time to dip them into white chocolate.
I sprinkled some freeze-dried strawberry dust over the top of the truffles to give them added flavor and color.
You can find the recipe for these strawberry truffles on the Dixie Crystals Website.
