Orange Truffles

Orange Truffles

Orange truffles are wonderfully indulgent. Truffles made with dark chocolate, grated orange zest and a splash of citrus liqueur, with a beautiful almond paste topping.


Step 1
  • Boil the cream and butter in a saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat.
Step 2
  • Break the chocolate into pieces, and stir into the hot cream and let it melt. Stir in orange zest and brandy.
Step 3
  • Work almond paste until soft and drip in food colouring. Knead it until the colour becomes even and fine.
Step 4
  • Roll out the almond paste (rolls out well on a plastic cutting board) so that it covers the bottom of an aluminum mould, about 10 x 17 cm. Press it down into the bottom of the mould.
Step 5
  • Pour over the chocolate. Let it solidify in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
Step 6
  • Remove the truffle from the mould and cut it into pieces with a sharp knife. Decorate with silver balls. Keep refrigerated.
