French Kiss Truffles

These truffles are so impressive that they won first place at the Wisconsin State Fair. The two-tone creamy candies combine an orange-flavored white chocolate and milk chocolate. —Gerry Cofta, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    about 2-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 8 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  • COATING:
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • Additional milk and white baking chocolate, melted

Directions

  • Place white chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring 1/3 cup cream just to a boil. Pour over white chocolate; whisk until smooth. Stir in orange zest and extract.
  • Place milk chocolate in another small bowl. In same saucepan, bring remaining cream just to a boil. Pour over milk chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool both mixtures to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate until firm.
  • To form centers, take 1-1/2 teaspoons of each chocolate mixture and shape into a two-tone ball, about 1 in. round. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
