Dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces
Orange liqueur (other other liqueur of your choice)
Finely grated zest of a large orange (optional)
Cocoa powder, to dust
Step 1 of 2
Put the chocolate, condensed milk and cream in a large bowl. Place in the microwave and heat on high for 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chocolate has melted. The mixture will thicken quite a lot – this is normal. Mix in the orange liqueur and zest. Cover and chill for 4 hours, or overnight, so the chocolate sets really well.
Step 2 of 2
Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment and coat it liberally with cocoa powder. Using a teaspoon, scoop the mixture into truffles, then drop onto the cocoa powder and coat well. Lift out, place on a baking sheet and chill well in the refrigerator.
We love these straight from the fridge…
