French Kiss Truffles Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + chilling YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 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
  • COATING:
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • Additional milk and white baking chocolate, melted

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
