Chocolate Orange Fudge Truffles

Chocolate, Clotted Cream, Fudge, Orange, Butter….needless to say that weight watchers need not apply.  But for the not-so-feint hearted, these babies are utterly melt-in-mouth deliciously scrummy.  They take a tiny 7 minutes to actually make (though allow them to cool over night).  If I am strapped for cash (ahem…most of my time then…) then I make these for people for their birthdays/christmas, they make a great gift – they may not cost a lot but they show that a bit of thought and effort has gone into the person, and the best bit is that they are suitable for everyone…friends, grannies, boyfriends, mums, sisters.  And trust me, they won’t complain being on the receiving end of these bad boys!


1 tin Condensed Milk (14oz)

3 Oranges (zested)

300g Dark Chocolate

200g Clotted Cream

200g Caster Sugar

200g Butter

Cocoa Powder to Dust

In a large pan, melt the butter and chocolate together on a low heat. Add all of the other ingredients, slowly stirring, simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes.  Voila – this is your truffle fudge mixture.  How easy was that?

Once cooled (best to cool over night), get a teaspoon and scoop into small balls (if they don’t make perfect balls (pah) then with clean hands, roll in your palms to do so).  Coat in cocoa powder and serve!

It’s best to present them in small little gift boxes lined with some grease proof paper to make it look like a grown up posh pressie.

Feel free to help them eat said gift….
