Summertime Treats: Root Beer Float Truffles

   Root Beer floats are my husband and daughter's most favorite summer dessert. It's like as soon as

summer gets here they are obsessed with it. Now, me? I like them every once in a while, but I have

to be in the mood for it. My all time favorite treat is chocolate. We'll save that topic for another time,


    I love this recipe because it tastes like ice cream and it practically melts in you mouth. They're

summer bbq's in a truffle, a pool party in a ball, a picnic in a.... Well you get the idea. Alright, you

talked me into it. I'll stop building it up and give you the recipe. What's your favorite summer

dessert? Let me know in the comments below.

Make time: 1 hour

Wait Time: 1 hour

Make about 15-20 truffles (depending on size)


1 bag white chocolate chips (11 oz.)

1 bag white candy melts

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Root Beer candy flavoring


1. Pour white chocolate chips into a heat proof bowl.

2. Warm heavy whipping cream to simmer and pour over white chocolate. Stir until smooth.

3. Add 40 to 50 drops of the root beer flavoring, stirring well. Taste after each addition to make sure 

you have the flavor that's right for you. (mine were lighter in flavor.) You can also add more if you 

like, but be careful, too much flavoring will make the truffles too strong.

4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 min. or until firm.

5. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Roll mixture into balls and place them on the cookie sheet.

6. Place truffles into the freezer for 30 min. Be sure that you don't put them into the deep freezer, The 

extreme cold will make your candy melts crack.

7. Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Stirring 

after each, until smooth.

8. Dip truffles in candy melts and place back onto cookie sheet. Let candy melts set.

9. Place truffles in an air tight container and place in the fridge. Keep refrigerated. Their good for 

about a week. Enjoy!
