Recipe: Orange Creamsicle Truffles

Mrs. Fields Secrets Orange Creamsicle Truffles

Here’s another great summer dessert that’s a no-fuss, no-bake option to make now and enjoy anytime. These melt-in-your-mouth wonders taste like your favorite childhood orange creamsicle, but arrive in dreamy grownup form. Made with rich white chocolate and orange flavoring, you can serve them as an easy after-dinner treat with coffee or your favorite glass of bubbly.

Orange Creamsicle Truffles

2 high-quality white chocolate bars (4.4 oz each)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon orange flavoring
1 teaspoon orange liqueur (optional)
red food coloring
yellow food coloring
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions
Chop white chocolate bars into small pieces and set aside. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and cream together until just combined. Remove from heat and stir in the salt, orange flavoring, and liqueur. Stir in two drops of yellow food coloring to every one drop of red to create an orange hue. Set aside and allow to cool a bit. On a double boiler over medium heat, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and slowly pour the orange mixture into the melted chocolate, stirring to combine until texture is silky and even. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, until solid.

To prepare truffles, place powdered sugar in a shallow dish. Use a melon baller or small cookie dough scoop to create small balls of chocolate mixture. Drop each ball into the powdered sugar, then roll in your hands to create a ball. Roll one more time in powdered sugar before placing on a serving sheet. Repeat with the remaining chocolate. Makes 18-24 truffles, depending on size. Chill before serving, or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to six weeks.

Fruits (and Tips) for Summer Grilling

One of summer’s best offerings is juicy fresh fruit, but don’t limit yourself by only serving it cold. Some of your favorite fruits take on a whole new level of yum when they land on the grill. Here are some fruits to try the next time you fire up your BBQ or grill pan, and some tips for serving.

TIP: Before you grill any fruit, be sure to start with a clean grill. Scrape it, brush it, and let it scorch clean for several minutes before placing any fruit on it. The last thing you want is fruit that tastes like meat or fish!

Stone Fruits

Apricots, peaches, plums and nectarines are amazing on the grill. Simply halve them, remove the pit, and give them a light brush of olive oil before placing on a hot grill. About 2-3 minutes per side is ideal. Serve them alongside grilled meats, or cold cheeses, or even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Melon

Your favorite melons take on a deep, rich flavor with some char from the grill. Leave the rind on watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and other obscure melons for best results. A little sprinkle of brown sugar before you place them on the grill will produce a candied effect; however, straight on the grill and then a sprinkle of salt or honey and lemon zest. Two minutes per side is adequate for a one-inch thick slice.

Pineapple

If you thought it was impossible to turn pineapple any sweeter, you were wrong. Grilled pineapple is delicious as a topping on a burger or a dessert unto itself. Cut thick slices or wedges and place directly on the grill for about three minutes per side.

Tomatoes

Technically a fruit, tomatoes are delicious on the grill. Slice in half and grill only on the skin side for about 2-3 minutes or until char marks appear. Serve on pasta, or with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Bananas

Your summer banana split has a great new flavor with grilled bananas on the bottom. Slice bananas in half lengthwise and spray with cooking spray before grilling for about 2 minutes per side. Remove the peel and top with your favorite ice cream and toppings.

TIP: Grilling is a great place for experimentation. If you think a favorite fruit might be good on the grill–give it a try!

The 5 People to Thank This Summer + Savings Promo Code

Summer. It’s a whirlwind of activity, where everybody is going in a hundred different directions between summer camps, lessons, work and vacations. With school out, it usually takes some extra sets of hands and eyes to keep a family going, so lest you forget, here are five people you should remember to thank this summer:

The Swimming Teacher

Have a Ball Box

She went above and beyond to teach your kids everything including back stroke so that you don’t have to have a stroke when you take them to the pool. It’s a tough job and you’re grateful. Let her know with a thoughtful gift like our Have a Ball Box.

The Camp Counselor

Sunny Day Satchel

The person who turned sleep-away camp into the BEST WEEK EVER for an otherwise shy kid deserves a lot of accolades. And by accolades, we mean cookies. Our Sunny Day Satchel will do the job for a job well done!

The Beloved Babysitter

Classic Craft Box

She doesn’t mind staying late when you’re caught in traffic on weekdays, and she always has the kids in bed on time on date night. (Okay, at least before you get home, anyway.) Your summer would be unmanageable without her help, so let her know. May we suggest the Classic Craft Box for this?

The Amazing Hosts

Stars N Bites Box

They welcomed your whole family into their home and gave you the star treatment from big breakfasts to extra blankets to chocolates on the pillows. Make them feel like stars too with this thoughtful thank you, the Stars N Bites Box.

The Dog Sitter

Turtle Surprise Box

Without him, you couldn’t get away for vacation in the first place. (And truth be told, the dog likes him better anyway.) A great dog sitter is peace of mind, so let him know how much his service means with our Turtle Surprise Box.

And as our way of saying thanks to YOU, all of these gifts are part of our Black Friday Summer deal. Save BIG on all of them with code BFSUMMER at checkout today!
