    Orange Flavored Chocolate Truffles

    I've always loved the combination of chocolate and orange. This satisfies that craving when it hits and they are so easy its shameful.

    List of Ingredients

    • 1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 c. real butter
    • 6 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
    • 2 tbls. grated orange zest*
    • 1 tsp. orange extract
    • *************
    • Suggested coatings:
    • ground pistachio's
    • unsweetened cocoa powder
    • powdered sugar
    • chocolate jimmies


    1. Using a small but heavy saucepan, stir the cream and chocolate chips over medium heat until chocolate is almost melted and starting to bubble.
    2. Remove from heat. Continue to stir until all of the chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth.
    3. Stir in the orange zest and orange extract. Pour into a shallow baking pan and refrigerate for about 40 minutes.
    4. Now is a good time to put 2-3 tbls. of the coatings into shallow, individual dishes that you can roll the truffles in easily.
    5. Cut the cold chocolate into 24 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then in one of the coatings. (About 6 per coating).
    6. Place the balls int the 1 inch little paper cups that are designed for bon bons.
    7. Using an air tight container, store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Be sure you keep them well hidden though.)

    Final Comments

    * Orange zest in just another name for grated orange peel.
