10 Homemade Food Gifts from Your Kitchen
7. Bittersweet Chocolate-Orange Truffles
While orange adds an exotic note, much of the flavor of these simple yet sophisticated candies comes from the chocolate, so choose a semisweet or bittersweet chocolate with the flavor and level of sweetness you enjoy. The recipe makes a big batch of truffles—plenty for gift-giving. Although they should be stored in the refrigerator, they're best served after sitting at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
