Recipe Spotlight

Orange Chocolate Meltaways

The terrific combination of chocolate and orange makes these some of the best truffles I've ever had. As holiday gifts, they're showstoppers. I have little time to cook, but when I do, I like to "get fancy." In this case, "fancy" doesn't have to be difficult. -Lori Kostecki, Wausau, Wisconsin
