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

"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."

"This is Taste of Home's light dessert of the week? At 145 calories and 10 grams of fat per 1-inch truffle, I don't consider that light."

"I just love the combination of orange and chocolate! Excellent truffles! And to bakergirlmd, I agree with the other review. If you don't like the ingredients in a recipe don't post a review. There are so many Truffles recipes out there why hurt a recipe's review status just because you don't like orange and chocolate."

"These are really good. Sorry but I have to speak my mind here when I say: If you haven't tried it or don't like the ingredients, don't post a review. You'll bring down its stats just because you happen not to prefer orange with chocolate. There, I said it."

"I am not a fan of orange anything mixed with chocolate, especially white chocolate. Additionally, I would skip both the milk chocolate and the white chocolate altogether and use dark chocolate at least of 70 percent or better cacao. Add raspberry extract or liquer for the center. Coat with additional dark chocolate. Yum!"
