- 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
- 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
- 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
- 8 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- Additional milk and white baking chocolate, melted
- Place white chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring 1/3 cup cream just to a boil. Pour over white chocolate; whisk until smooth. Stir in orange peel and extract.
- Place milk chocolate in another small bowl. In same saucepan, bring remaining cream just to a boil. Pour over milk chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool both mixtures to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate until firm.
- To form centers, take 1-1/2 teaspoons of each chocolate mixture and shape into a two-tone ball, about 1 in. round. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
- In a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, whisk semisweet chocolate until smooth. Dip truffles in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Return to baking sheets; drizzle with additional chocolate as desired. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

"Good to the last little crumb"
"This is my recipe that I came up with several years ago after making both chocolate and orange truffles. Figured I would put the flavors together. Glad I did, these truffles are a big favorite. There are various flavors you could add if you like. I am always changing recipes to my liking. Thanks to the people who wrote the nice reviews. :)"
"I agree, I love orange and chocolate together and these are delicious. If you don't like the combination or you don't agree with the nutrition, then don't make them, but don't post a negative review if you haven't actually made them. And, if you eat ONE truffle, instead of a handful, it's a relatively light dessert. Sometimes one is all I want, something rich and sweet and chocolate, just a bite or two is enough."
