These chocolate orange truffles are super easy to make and require no thermometer or tempering of the chocolate.
Used different ingredients. Made these last night. Oh My God Are They Good!!! Had a bit of a hard time getting the filling to chill stiff enough. But they turned out great. I also made a batch with Kahlua and instant coffee and they were good as well. - 21 Jul 2008
The flavour of the filling is very good! I would *not* recommend adding oil to the chocolate used for coating as it slows it from hardening. Also, do not be tempted to freeze the filling... the chocolate shell will crack if the filling is frozen! - 21 Jul 2008
Very delicious and easy! I made these to give as homemade Valentine's Day candy. I would make the following recommendations to the recipe: double the recipe, I ended up with 28 very small chocolates. I would double the recipe and make larger balls. I had trouble getting my filling to get firm enough. Even after 2+ hours of chilling it wasn't firm enough to roll. So I scooped out the size balls I wanted onto a lined baking tray, then placed them in the FREEZER for 30 minutes, then I rolled them into balls, and "froze" for another 15 minutes longer before rolling them in the cooled chocolate coating. - 21 Jul 2008
