Choco-Orange Truffles

Last 2 weeks had been a chaos… Packing & moving everything to our new place, too many cake orders on hand, unpacking in the following week and again too many cake orders to work on!!! Huh… Still a few boxes left unpacked in a corner of one room but I’m happy that we coped up with everything smoothly :)
Haven’t got a chance to click/cook anything special since we moved :( But I’m getting back on track now… Trying to be regular on blog again! And here I’m starting with a sweet note which was pending since long… “Choco-Orange Truffles”, picture of which I posted on 4th bloganniversary celebration day without a recipe :P
What I love about these sweet balls is… I get to use all the unused cake crumbs :P
