Ingredients

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate (approximately 1 cup)
  • 8 oz dark chocolate (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon

Coating

  • 1 cup toffee bits
  • 1 cup pistachio (optional)

Instructions

Preparation

  • Finely chop the chocolates and put it in a large bowl
  • Zest 1 large orange, and put it into the bowl
  • Add the cinnamon into the bowl

Mixing the Chocolate

  • Microwave the heavy cream in the microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds (every microwave is different, so watch it like a hawk. When it bubbles up, it is most likely hot enough) When you take it out of the microwave, make sure it's hot enough by checking if the cream is steaming.
  • Add the cream into the bowl and slowly mix all the ingredients together. Speed up the mixing once the chocolate has started melting.
  • (Optional) If you are doing the pistachio coating, add the toffee in now. If not, reserve the toffee bits for coating after.
  • Put the bowl into the fridge, and let it cool for 2 hours

Rolling the Truffles

  • Run your wrist under cold water to cool your hands down.
  • (Optional) Add 1 or 2 drops of oil onto your hands
  • Scoop 1 teaspoon of chocolate out of the bowl, and roll it into a ball.
  • Roll the truffle in either the toffee bits or the pistachios
  • Put it on a tray or plate, and keep it in the fridge to cool.
  • Enjoy! :)

Notes

  • When zesting, do not zest the whites (the pith) of the orange. It is very bitter and not very tasty
  • Storage: Truffles pick up funky smells and flavours from the fridge easily. To store this, keep it in the fridge, well sealed.
