These truffles are so impressive that they won first place at Wisconsin State Fair. These two-tone creamy candies combine an orange-flavored white chocolate and milk chocolate.—Gerry Cofta, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW

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. :)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

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.
