Isn’t white chocolate so delicious? It’s absolutely amazing, and might even be more versatile than its darker cousins! You might even be surprised at just how many different recipes – both sweet and savory – that you can make with white chocolate!
Well, here are 15 of the absolute best and most creative sues for white chocolate that you can possibly find! You’ll be amazed at how many great tasting ideas there are here – so, on to the recipes!
This is possibly one of the simplest recipes that you could possibly make – and yet, it’s also one of the most delicious!
All you’ll need is some good quality white chocolate (the higher quality the better!), a punnet of strawberries, and a way to melt the delicious white chocolate.
The recipe recommends using a heatproof bowl to hold the chocolate over a pan of simmering water. This is probably a much better way than applying the heat directly – you’re at much less risk of accidentally burning the chocolate.
And, of course, you wouldn’t want to do that – after all, what would you use to drizzle over your delicious fresh strawberries?
You don’t need to add any cream or sugar – the white chocolate and natural sugars of the fruit mean that this is sweet enough!
It’s rare to find someone who doesn’t appreciate a good cookie – and this recipe gives you far more than just a good cookie!
These white chocolate oreo cookies are absolutely delicious – they’re so soft and chewy, and full of amazing tasting white chocolate that’s just ever-so-slightly melted.
You’ll use 14 Oreo cookies, and around 12 ounces of white chocolate chips, meaning that these are absolutely full of chocolate, biscuit, and cream from the get-go!
You’ll have these made in no time at all, too – only needing 10 minutes to prepare, and 8 minutes to cook! That means that in just under 20 minutes, you’ll have made 24 amazing tasting white chocolate Oreo cookies.
Of course, as they’re this delicious, they probably won’t last very long – so maybe you’ll want to make an even bigger batch!
It’s hard to say what’s best about this deliciously sweet recipe. Is it the beautiful good quality white chocolate? Or the richness that the heavy cream provides?
Maybe it’s the delightful flavor of the shredded coconut! Well, it’s likely all three together – as these white truffles are such a great treat, and once you try one, you won’t want to go without a single part of this recipe!
They take a little bit of time to make, as you’ll have to give the ganache you’ll make plenty of time to set in the fridge. Allow about 2 hours for it to be ready, then roll into a smooth ball by hand and roll in the shredded coconut.
The recipe says you should set them on a plate, and store in the fridge – presumably because these are so sweet and delicious you’ll have to be reminded not to eat them all at once!
As the recipe website says, this recipe is (in a word) decadent. Of course, you’ll be thinking of a lot more adjectives too when you eat this – delicious, divine, and does “mmmmmmm” count as an adjective?
There’s so much chocolate in this recipe that it’s a wonder that any other ingredient can find breathing room – but there’s no way that you won’t notice how delicious the raspberry and raspberry jam/puree garnish is when combined with all that delicious white chocolate.
You’ll make your own extremely delicious cheesecake too, with a chocolate cracker crust and a filling composed of – you guessed it – chopped white chocolate, cream cheese, heavy AND sour creams, and some delicious vanilla extract and raspberry jam for flavoring.
This is such a great recipe – the only downside is that you’ll need to wait potentially up to 24 hours for the cheesecake to chill in the refrigerator before garnishing and serving.
This recipe has certainly earned the exclamation mark! It’s so delicious and sweet – being absolutely laden with great tasting white chocolate and raspberries.

The raspberry coulis that you’ll make here is so delicious and simple – add raspberries, water, and some sugar to a pan, and heat gently until the fruit softens. Puree, sieve for seeds, and leave to cool.
So simple, and yet even from the description alone, you can tell how delicious it’s going to be!
White chocolate might be sweet and delicious, but that doesn’t mean that you have to restrict it solely to desserts!
As this recipe shows, white chocolate can be a very versatile addition to many dishes – such as with this idea for salmon in a white chocolate, dill, and lemon sauce.
You’ll need around 9 ounces of white chocolate for this delicious recipe – which goes a long way when you consider the 140 grams of salmon that it’ll end up deliciously covering!

You’re going to use plenty of tomatoes of many varieties for this delicious meal – 2 kilograms of Roma tomatoes, 200 grams of mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes, and of course even 100 grams of tomatillos!
Not to mention, the delicious addition of 150 grams of gooseberries that really help to top this delicious and unconventional dish off.
This dish takes at least a night to make, as you’ll need to marinade the tomatoes overnight before straining through muslin and a coffee filter.
Make sure to have a blender too – it’s the only way to really get those Roma tomatoes chopped and mashed up anywhere near enough!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is White Chocolate Real Chocolate?
Well, in the eyes of some self-appointed chocolate connoisseurs, perhaps not – as it doesn’t contain cocoa solids. However, it’s still made from cocoa butter – which makes the situation less clear.
Regardless of whether it’s technically a chocolate or not, it is certainly regarded as a type of chocolate by the majority – and it can definitely be used in pretty much identical ways to darker chocolates.
Is White Chocolate Vegan Friendly?
Not really. It’s of course possible to get products that claim to be vegan friendly, and are very close to white chocolate – but for many, the lack of milk products in these chocolates mean that it’s just not the same as white chocolate.
That doesn’t mean that these products don’t taste great, necessarily – but that they might not always be ideal substitutes.
