Orange Chocolate Truffles

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

When my gramma passed away, I acquired a lot of her cookbooks and recipes. Most were random index cards or scraps of paper with little notes on them. Some were cut from old magazines. I noticed a lot of her baking recipes called for Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers.  I’d seen them in the stores, so I decided to grab a box and create a super simple, very quick, and really easy recipe with them. Gramma definitely knew what she was doing – because these Orange Chocolate Truffles are AMAZING!  I hope you like them as much as I do!

What you need:

Coating:

Make them:

Place the first four ingredients into a medium bowl and mix until well combined.  You can use your hands or a plastic spatula for this.

Use your cookie scoop or hands to roll into balls about 1 inch in diameter.  Place each ball on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and put in freezer for about 15 minutes.

While the balls are chilling, melt your candy coating (you can also use chocolate for this!) in the microwave, in a small bowl. Stir in orange extract until well combined.

Dip each ball until it’s fully covered, then place them on the cookie sheet.

Sprinkle with orange zest or sprinkles, and serve!

Keep these in the fridge.

Jeni’s Disclaimer: I’m just a regular girl.  I love to drink wine while I bake.  I’m by no means a professional baker or pro photographer. My creations aren’t staged, they just are what they are, and that’s probably obvious from the pictures.  I create my recipes from inspiration of scents and flavors around me. I also repurpose my grandma’s old recipes. If you love to bake and your food ends up looking like REAL food, and not like something you’ll see on Instagram, you’re in the right place.
