Orange Dark Chocolate Truffles
Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Plan For

Chill 2-3 hours

Yield :
12-14 truffles


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips (58%-65% cocoa mass)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons Imperial Sugar Confectioners Powdered Sugar


  1. In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, stir heavy cream and orange zest together and heat until very hot, about 10 minutes. Strain heavy cream and discard zest. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips, wait 1 minute, then whisk cream and chocolate chips together until completely smooth. Stir in orange juice. Chill chocolate mixture for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator until firm enough to scoop.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk cocoa powder and powdered sugar together. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out a small amount of firm chocolate, roll into a ball and toss in cocoa mixture. Repeat this step with the rest of the chocolate. Keep truffles refrigerated until ready to serve.
