- 1/4 cup butter
- Zest of 1/2 orange
- 3 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 tsp orange extract
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Red and yellow food coloring (optional)
Pour white chocolate chips into a mixing bowl, set aside.
Melt butter along with orange zest in a small saucepan.
Stir in cream and scald mixture, remove from heat.
Pour hot cream mixture through a fine mesh sieve over white chocolate chips and using a rubber spatula press zest against sieve to release orange oils into mixture.
Allow mixture to rest 1 minute, add orange extract and optional food coloring to white chocolate chip mixture then stir until smooth.
Cover mixture and refrigerate 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
Scoop mixture out by heaping teaspoon fulls and form into balls then roll in powdered sugar.
Freeze truffles 20 minutes then enjoy. Store truffles in refrigerator as they will soften at room temperature or freeze for up to 1 month.
