  • 4 oz homemade pistachio butter (1/2 cup, 113 g)
  • 10 oz white chocolate melting wafers (283g, divided)
  • Ground pistachio


  • Add pistachio butter and 4 oz of white chocolate to a heat proof bowl.
  • Place the bowl over a simmering pot of water to melt the chocolate, stir to mix the chocolate and pistachio butter well.
  • Refrigerate for 45 minutes to 1 hour to let the truffle filling harden but still workable.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop to portion the truffle filling into 13 pieces.
  • Place them on a parchment line baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Melt the rest of the white chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a simmering pot of water.
  • Dip the bottom of a truffle into the melted chocolate and place it on the tip of a fork.
  • Use a spoon to drizzle melted chocolate over the top to cover it completely.
  • Allow the excess to drip off before placing it back on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle some ground pistachio over the top of the truffle.

  • Place the baking sheet back into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow the chocolate to harden completely.


You can trim the excess chocolate at bottom of the truffles off, but it is not entirely necessary.
