Here Comes Peter Cottontail

I wanted to share with you an adorable dessert that I love to have on hand for Easter - my Peter Cottontail truffles.  Truffles are so luxurious but a bit on the expensive side.  However, they are super easy AND inexpensive to make.  Guests and friends love being suprised with these decadent treats.

Peter Cottontails

1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
1 1/2 cups chopped white chocolate
3/4 sweetened flaked coconut

Scald cream with both the vanilla and coconut extract over medium heat.  Stir in chocolate until melted.  Cool for 1 hour.  Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in the flaked coconut.  Chill for one hour or until firm.  *Store tightly covered at room temperature.

While I am at it, here is a sneak peak of Easter at our house.


Before I go, don't forget my give away of this darling book.  Just in time for The Masters and perfect for the wee golfer in your life.  

To enter, like my Facebook page (The Southern Sideboard),  like The Masters A to Z by Julia Alfriend Ferris on Facebook (tell her The Southern Sideboard sent you) and leave a message on this post that you have done all of the above.

Hippity Hoppity!
