Coffee and Orange Chocolate Truffles

13 Coffee and Orange Chocolate Truffles 

Truffles deliciously melt in your mouth.

The soft chocolate in the middle is divine.

And the cocoa powder on the outside of the truffle is like a bow on a present…the perfect topping.

These truffles are flavored with orange and coffee.  The combination of these flavors with the chocolate is soooo good.

They can be made ahead of time, are super easy to make, and store nicely in the fridge too.

It’s a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day.  Just wrap a few (or more of course) in a small cellophane gift bag and add a ribbon.

Getting homemade sweets as a gift is the best surprise.  And especially if it’s chocolate.

Make some for yourself too.  You deserve it!

So let’s check out the ingredients.

  1. these would be great “little gifts ” for the holidays….. sub peppermint !

    • Hi Denise, they sure would be and I love the idea of using peppermint instead of the coffee and orange flavor. Now I’m going to have to do that. Have a great day!
