  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter and cream. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat. Stir in 4 ounces chopped chocolate, orange liqueur, and orange zest; continue stirring until smooth. Pour truffle mixture into a shallow bowl or a 9X5 in loaf pan. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Shape chilled truffle mixture by rounded teaspoons into small balls (a melon baller also works well for this part). Place on prepared baking sheet. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt remaining 4 ounces chocolate with the oil, stirring until smooth. Cool to lukewarm.
  4. Drop truffles, one at a time, into melted chocolate mixture. Using 2 forks, lift truffles out of the chocolate, allowing any excess chocolate to drip back into the pan before transferring back onto baking sheet. Chill until set.

I made these using grand marnier. Instead of dipping in chocolate, I prefer my truffles rolled in cocoa, this worked fine. These are excellent, distinct orange flavor, but not too much. Melt ...

These were very good! I have to say, though, that I missed the professional look of tempered chocolate. I rolled half of them in pecans and the other half in cocoa. Freezing the balls for thi...

I could hardly believe it, but it worked: I substituted organic coconut milk for the cream, and organic palm oil shortening for the butter. Added two tablespoons of homemade vanilla extract (i...
