Chocolate Truffles

I love the chocolate/orange flavour combination but it’s easy to switch things up if you’d like. Leave the orange zest out and substitute other liqueurs for the Sabra or dissolve 1 Tbsp. of instant coffee in 2 Tbsp. of hot water and use instead of the liqueur.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 11 ounce bittersweet chocolate -- (300 g)
  • 3 tablespoons Sabra liqueur (or other liqueur of your choice)
  • cocoa powder, sugar, nuts, coconut for rolling


Heat the whipping cream and orange zest in a small pot over medium heat until it just starts to simmer. While it’s heating, chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl.

When the cream starts simmering, take it off the heat and carefully pour it over the chocolate. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes.

Gently stir the chocolate and cream until it’s all combined and smooth. Cover and chill until firm. This will take a few hours.

Once firm, use a small scoop or a tablespoon to portion truffles. Drop directly into dishes of cocoa, chopped nuts, coconut, sugar or anything else you’d like to roll the truffles in (only use sugar if they will be eaten within a day because the sugar will get wet if it sits too long). Once coated, roll into balls and onto a serving dish. Serve immediately or chill until you’re ready to serve.
