Ube Coconut Truffles is my recipe of the day  for the one-day blogging event called Candy and Fudge Favorites.

Lots of bloggers are sharing their recipes for the holiday season today. For  my selection I chose to  post Ube Coconut Truffles,  which I came  up with playing around with a can  of Ube Condensed Milk. They turned out to be  perfectly purple and delicious!

Jans Ube Condensed  Milk

I used this type of condensed milk in the recipe. There  might be other brands. Besides Amazon, you might be able to procure these at Asian markets. You will know what’s available to you, but at least you aren’t without a source here.

Ube Condensed Milk

What is Ube?

Ube is a type of purple yam common in the Phillipines. In this case, it comes already processed and canned  so you don’t have to mess with it. It looks like a very deep  purple condensed  milk. The flavor is very sweet  just as condensed milk is. And it has just a hint of  sweet  potato/pumpkin to it but  not overly so.

The color is amazing. Girls  who are into unicorn foods will  love this.

What do Ube Truffles taste  like?

These  truffles have the texture of a slightly soft  fudge so keep them chilled  so they hold a perfect round shape. I put  mine into  paper candy cups. They do taste  mostly of coconut,  similar  to a macaroon but not baked. If  you  dig  coconut  you will adore these.

  • 8" glass baking dish and parchment paper


  • 13.4 ounce can Ube Condensed Milk
  • 11 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • additional sweetened flaked coconut, (2-3 cups) or sifted powdered sugar (to coat) (amounts approximate)


  • Prepare an 8" square glass dish by lining with parchment paper with edges overhanging and greased with butter or sprayed with nonstick.
  • Microwave white chocolate chips and condensed milk one minute.
  • Stir in marshmallow creme and microwave one minute more.
  • Add vanilla and coconut; pour into prepared glass dish, spread evenly, cool and chill (6 hours or overnight).
  • Divide mixture into 42 pieces and roll into balls (I cut 6x7 and use that as a guide- a little bigger or smaller here or there is fine).
  • Then roll truffles into more coconut or sifted powdered sugar (I prefer coconut) and chill until firm.
  • Keep truffles refrigerated during storage.
