Orange Blossom Truffles

This is an incredibly simple candy to make. Perfect for a holiday party, a gift, or to satisfy a four year old’s wish to make something for every character in Strawberry Shortcake (of which orange blossom is one).

I use very few ingredients when making truffles so Z can help me and she likes the end result. We’ve tried and modified lots of recipes, the more fussy ones she doesn’t end up eating. This is my favorite. In the end you’re making a ganache that you heat up in your hands. I like to cut the super sweetness of the melted chocolate with rolling them in pure cocoa which is bitter, but Z really likes.

This is what you need;

1 bag (10 oz) high quality chocolate chips

1 tea orange blossom water

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tbsp pure cocoa powder

In a medium saucepan, slowly bring cream to a gentle simmer. Add orange blossom water. Remove from heat and immediately add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours.

Remove ganache and using a teaspoon scoop out chocolate. Roll between your palms to form a ball and then roll in cocoa powder. Voila! You have a truffle!
