It was a little hard to find the Chocolate Creme Treasures, I had to pick them out of the mixed bag! Other than that, super easy and REALLY good! My son LOVES them.

Delicious! Choc. & orange are my favorite flavors & I love dipping chocolate so instead of rolling in cocoa powder I melted 2 C. semi-sweet chips w/1/2 bar of wax (for neat fingers)The party favorite! Kudos to the submitter (don't remember her name).

The Fool-Proof Chocolate-Orange Treasure Truffles were incredibly delicious. I changed the recipe a bit and added a hard chocolate shell to the truffles so when you bit into them the truffle was hard on the outside but extremely soft on the inside. Everyone is getting these for a great snack.

Excellent truffles. I added 2T (-2T from the oj) of Grand Marnier for a wonderful adult truffle that I took to a party I attended. Everyone wanted more truffles and the recipe..

I made these for the holidays. They were so easy and absolutely delicious. I am going to try to use other additions besides orange juice.

I loved the truffle recipe. But I changed it ever-so-slightly. instead of rolling in cocoa powder, I rolled in Nestle' Quick. It is a sweeter and less messy finger food this way.
