Tips & Tricks

  • If the melted chips are too thick for dipping, add one teaspoon of vegetable oil or shortening and stir. You can also use Wilton EZ Thin Dipping Aid. Continue adding a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
  • If you prefer, you can melt the white chocolate using a double boiler over medium/low heat. You can also use dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate instead of the white.
  • For best results, use a cookie scoop to portion the truffles – this will help ensure that they are all the same size.
  • Try some ginger snap crumbs or crushed vanilla wafers in place of the graham cracker crumbs. You can give them a few pulses in a food processor to crush them easily.
