Expert Tips

For best results, use only butter in this recipe.

Add "wow" with a plate design of White Truffle Sauce. Chop 6 ounces white chocolate baking bar and heat with 2 tablespoons butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted (mixture will be thick and grainy). Stir in 1/2 cup whipping (heavy) cream until smooth. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. Cover a dessert plate with Raspberry Sauce. Using White Truffle Sauce, make vertical lines at 1-inch intervals. Using knife tip or toothpick, draw through the lines in alternating directions.
