Disclosure: These Orange Truffles were inspired as part of a sponsored post for Halos. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I am always looking for great recipes to share with my friends and family during a party or special occasion. So after scoring Pinterest for new ideas, I came across these taste looking Orange Creamsicle Truffles. These no-bake dream bites are so delicious, it is hard to just have one.
The next best thing to the taste of these Orange Creamsicle Truffles, is the easy, around the house ingredients. With vanilla wafers, powdered sugar, orange juice from Halos Mandarin Oranges and cream cheese give these little guys their creamy-orange flavor.
We started off first by crushing vanilla wafers in a quart size bag, then pouring then into a large mixing bowl. Where we would combine the cream cheese, Halos Orange Juice, and powered sugar. The dough mixture was tough at first, so I suggest pouring the powered sugar a half of a cup at a time.
You can use a stand mixer or hand mixer to get these ingredients all mixed together just right. After mixing, refrigerate the dough for just 1 hour. This made the dough easy to handle so that they could easily be rolled into balls.
After waiting an hour, roll a few 1 inch balls out, about 30 of them. Then melt a package of vanilla Candiquik or Almond Bark according to the directions on the back of the package. Be sure not to over cook your chocolate, that is a tough lesson to learn.
It takes a little skill to cover your truffles in your candy, we used almond bark, and placed the truffles on wax paper to sit. We allowed the truffles to set completly befere storing them in a air tih
1 (12 ounce) box of vanilla wafers
4 ounces (1/2 block) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 package (16 ounces) vanilla Candiquik
Zest of 1 orange
- Place the vanilla wafers in a Ziploc bag and crush them. Place the cookie crumbs in the bowl of a stand mixer or a large bowl.
- Add the softened cream cheese. Using either a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together the cookie crumbs and cream cheese, adding the orange juice concentrate as you mix.
- Slowly add in the powdered sugar, 1/2 a cup at a time, until the dough is easy to handle and able to be rolled into balls without sticking to your hands. This was 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar for us.
- Once the dough is well-mixed, place the bowl with the dough into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Remove the dough and roll into 1-inch size balls. You’ll get about 32 balls.
- Melt the vanilla Candiquik in the microwave according to the package directions. Using a fork, dip the balls into the Candiquik, coating completely.
- Place the balls on a cookie sheet that has been covered with wax paper or parchment paper. Before the candy coating sets, sprinkle the tops with the orange zest.
- Allow the truffles to set completely before storing in an airtight container.
Candiquik is a candy coating that is super easy to drizzle and dip your favorite candies and cookies in. If you can’t find Candiquik, you can substitute white almond bark or white chocolate.
