Bittersweet Chocolate-Orange Truffles

From EatingWell

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 with a 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.

Chocolate Chip-Cookie Dough Truffles

From Better Homes and Gardens

Those that succumb to the joys of mining for cookie dough in ice cream will love having the mining done for them -- and dipped in chocolate, no less! Do not be tempted to make these truffles with classic chocolate chip cookie dough, though; the egg in classic dough is not safe when eaten raw.
