Dark Chocolate and Orange Truffles
For this recipe I used Triple Sec and real Orange flavor extract to flavored the truffles, which is one of my favorite.
For the coating you can also use whatever you have on hand, I had unsweetened organic coconut but cocoa powder, any chopped nuts will work well too. In any event, this recipe speaks for itself so I hope you like it.
Orange chocolate truffles
Miryam's original recipe
Yield: 30-40 truffles depending on size
Total Time:20 minutes
1 lb dark chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
2-3 tablespoon triple sec, more if you like
1 tablespoon real orange extract
1 cup unsweetened organic shredded coconut, you may need a little bit more.
In a sauce pan heat the heavy cream until boiling point. Watch because it will boiled over very easily.
Place dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl and pour heavy cream over. Immediately start mixing with a whisk until the Ganache is formed. Pour liquor and incorporate well.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until firm. Roll balls, I used a small cookie scoop, and coat with favorite covering such as shredded coconut, cocoa powder or chopped nuts.
