Indulge in Festive Elegance: Blue Christmas Truffles blend white chocolate, heavy cream, and a zesty twist of blue curacao, topped with dazzling sanding sugar. A simple, yet sophisticated addition to your holiday celebrations.

A Holiday Tradition Reimagined:

Every December, my kitchen transforms into a whimsical sweet shop. This year, I decided to shake things up with these Blue Christmas Truffles. Inspired by a childhood memory of gazing at the twinkling blue lights on snowy evenings, I sought to capture that magic in a bite-sized treat. The result? A delightful combination of creamy chocolate and the playful tang of blue curacao, reminiscent of winter’s enchanting charm. These truffles aren’t just a dessert; they’re a nostalgic trip down memory lane, wrapped in a sparkling blue coat.

Why Blue Christmas Truffles Stand Out:

  1. Intriguing Flavor Profile: The unusual pairing of white chocolate and blue curacao offers a taste that’s both familiar and refreshingly new.
  2. Visually Striking: Their sparkling blue appearance is a showstopper, sure to captivate your guests.
  3. Easy Yet Impressive: Simple to make but appearing deceptively sophisticated, they are perfect for those who want to impress without the stress.
  4. Versatile for Various Occasions: While named for Christmas, their unique look and taste make them suitable for various celebrations, adding a touch of whimsy wherever they go.

Exploring the Ingredients:

  • White Chocolate Chips: The base of our truffles, providing a creamy, sweet canvas for the other flavors.
  • Heavy Cream: A touch of cream enriches the chocolate, ensuring a smooth, velvety texture.
  • Blue Curacao: This is where the magic happens! The blue curacao adds a citrusy twist, setting these truffles apart from the ordinary.
  • Sanding Sugar: Not just for aesthetics, the sugar adds a delightful crunch, contrasting beautifully with the creamy truffle.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Melting Chocolate and Cream: This initial step is all about patience and precision. Melting the chocolate with cream requires careful attention to avoid burning. The result should be a smooth, creamy base for your truffles.
  2. Incorporating Blue Curacao: Here’s where we add a twist! Mixing in the blue curacao not only infuses the truffles with a unique citrus flavor but also gives them their signature blue hue.
  3. Chilling the Mixture: Patience is key. Chilling allows the mixture to firm up enough to be shaped into truffles without losing its creamy consistency.
  4. Preparation for Rolling: Setting up your rolling station with parchment paper and sanding sugar is a fun, albeit slightly messy, part of the process.
  5. Forming Truffles: The art of truffle rolling! A therapeutic process where you shape the chilled mixture into perfect little orbs of joy.
  6. Setting the Truffles: The final chill sets the truffles, ensuring they hold their shape and are ready to delight your taste buds.

Preserving the Magic:

Blue Christmas Truffles should be stored in the refrigerator, ideally in an airtight container. This keeps them fresh and maintains their texture. For longer storage, they can be frozen, but be sure to thaw them in the fridge before serving to preserve their delicate flavor and texture.

Customizing Yourr Truffles:

  • Alternate Liquors: Not a fan of blue curacao? Try substituting it with other liqueurs like raspberry or orange for a different flavor profile.
  • Non-Alcoholic Version: For a kid-friendly version, replace blue curacao with blueberry juice or a similar non-alcoholic blue syrup.
  • Different Coatings: Swap out sanding sugar with crushed nuts, cocoa powder, or even shredded coconut for a different look and texture.
  • Vegan Alternatives: Use vegan white chocolate and a plant-based cream to cater to different dietary preferences.

Servings: 24 Truffles


  • White Chocolate Chips: 2 cups
  • Heavy Cream: 2 tablespoons
  • Blue Curacao: 2 tablespoons
  • Sanding Sugar: 1/2 cup


  • Melting the Chocolate and Cream: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 cups of white chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Heat the mixture in the microwave at half power, using 30-second intervals. Between each interval, stir the mixture until it achieves a homogeneous, creamy consistency.
  • Incorporation of Blue Curacao: Following the melting of the chocolate, introduce 2 tablespoons of blue curacao to the mixture. Stir until the curacao is thoroughly integrated into the chocolate, ensuring an even color and flavor distribution.
  • Refrigeration of the Mixture: Cover the bowl containing the mixture and place it in the refrigerator. Allow it to chill for approximately two hours, a step crucial to attaining the desired firmness for truffle formation.
  • Preparation for Rolling Truffles: Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Additionally, pour 1/2 cup of sanding sugar into a separate shallow bowl for coating the truffles.
  • Forming the Truffles: Using a teaspoon, scoop out portions of the chilled chocolate mixture. Roll these portions into balls, then roll each ball in the sanding sugar until fully coated.
  • Setting the Truffles: Arrange the sugar-coated truffles on the prepared baking sheet. Once all truffles are formed, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for an additional hour to allow the truffles to set firmly.
  • Storage Instructions: Store the Blue Christmas Truffles in a refrigerator, preferably in an airtight container, until they are ready to be served. Any remaining truffles should be kept refrigerated under the same conditions.
