Chocolate Truffles

chocolate orange truffles

rich chocolate truffles with zesty orange chocolate filling

serves 20-24.


  • Spero Sunflower™ Cream Cheese: 1 tub, we recommend The Chocolate :D 
  • ORANGE ZEST: 1 tsp, finely grated (or 1 tsp orange extract)
  • CHOCOLATE CHIPS: 2 cups, dairy-free semisweet or dark 
  • COCONUT OIL: 1 tsp (optional)
  • GARNISH: melted dairy-free white chocolate and/or sprinkles (optional)


  1. MIX Spero Sunflower™ Cream Cheese with the orange zest (or extract) & place in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes.    
  2. SCOOP out the mixture (using a small melon ball scoop or a tablespoon measuring spoon) and form into balls; transfer to a parchment paper-lined tray & place in the freezer for about half an hour or until hardened. 
  3. FILL a small saucepan halfway w/ water & bring to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan (the bottom of the bowl shouldn’t touch the water); add the chocolate chips & coconut oil (if using) and stir gently until melted & smooth. 
  4. REMOVE melted chocolate from heat & let cool slightly. 
  5. DIP the chilled balls (using a toothpick makes it easier) in melted chocolate & arrange on a parchment paper-lined tray; let cool before garnishing as desired.
