Chocolate Orange Truffles - rich, decadent and so easy to make!


  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Plugrá® European-Style Butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons orange flavoring
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening


  1. Heat the whipping cream and butter together just to a simmer, then add chocolate. Remove from heat while chocolate melts. Add flavoring. Stir until glossy and pour into a chilled bowl. Set aside until firm.
  2. Once firm, use a small melon baller and scoop ganache out. Roll by hand, using cocoa powder to reduce stickiness. Chill until firm.
  3. Melt 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate with 2 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir until melted; microwave additional seconds as needed. Drop each ball individually into chocolate, roll with a fork until coated, then use the fork to lift and place on parchment paper.
  4. Chill and keep refrigerated until service.
