Easy Orange Chocolate Truffles A Brianna Lentz Recipe

This is an easy no bake recipe that is fun and engaging for kids to make with adults. My kids absolutely loves these, they have a sweet flavor to them with a bunch of orange. I find this dessert to be a real palette cleanser, so I highly recommend this dessert be added to your Christmas baking list to break through the continuous cinnamon and sugar flavors that I love but we sometimes constantly and solely bake with.
