Luscious Orange Creamsicle Truffles Recipe

Indulge in the delightful combination of creamy white chocolate and tangy orange zest with these irresistible Orange Creamsicle Truffles. Perfect for any occasion, these decadent treats will satisfy your sweet cravings and leave your taste buds wanting more.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (225g) white chocolate, chopped
  • Zest of 1 large orange
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Orange food coloring (optional)
  • Orange sanding sugar or sprinkles for coating (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a heatproof bowl, combine the chopped white chocolate and orange zest. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat immediately.
  3. Pour the hot cream over the white chocolate and orange zest. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes to soften the chocolate, then gently stir until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add the softened butter, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the chocolate mixture. Stir until the butter is completely melted and incorporated.
  5. If desired, add a few drops of orange food coloring to enhance the color and flavor of the truffles. Stir until well combined.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mixture for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
  7. Once the mixture is firm, use a small spoon or melon baller to scoop out portions of the truffle mixture. Roll each portion into a smooth ball between your palms.
  8. If desired, roll the truffles in orange sanding sugar or sprinkles to coat evenly.
  9. Place the coated truffles on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for an additional 15-20 minutes to set.
  10. Serve the Orange Creamsicle Truffles chilled and enjoy the burst of citrusy flavor with every bite!

These truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week, although they’re so delicious, they probably won’t last that long!
