Vanilla and Orange flavoured Truffles


  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 cups Callebaut Dark Chocolate 811nv
  • 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Orange Flavored Liquer
  • Confectioner's Sugar
  • Cocoa Powder Callebaut
  • Finely Chopped Nuts


Heat heavy cream on stove until steaming; do not boil.

Add chocolate to a heatproof mixing bowl. Pour steaming cream over the chocolate and let sit for about 20 seconds to melt chocolate slightly.

With a handheld whisk, slowly mix cream and chocolate together, until just incorporated (about 2-3 minutes).

Continue mixing slowly and add orange flavored liquer and vanilla until just incorporated. Let the mixture sit for at least 1 hour.

When the mixture is firm, use two tablespoons, one to scoop the chocolate and the other to push onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll the truffles with the palms of your hands to create a round ball (wear latex gloves).

Roll the truffles in cocoa powder, confectioners' sugar or finely chopped nuts to finish.
