Dairyfree Orange Creamsicle Truffles are decadent treats that have orange goodness paired with a creamy, rich white chocolate flavour and not just any white chocolate but dairy free white chocolate. These truffles are easy to make and customize with different coatings.
These melt in your mouth treats are light enough to savor on a hot summer day and can be enjoyed as a treat or given as a gift.
Substitutions for DairyFree Orange Creamsicle Truffles
White Chocolate – Use a dairy free white chocolate brand you like or use my Homemade White Chocolate Bark Recipe (just leave out the peppermint candy) to make white chocolate at home and use that in this recipe.
Butter – Use your favourite dairy free brand of butter substitute
Heavy Whipping Cream – Use a dairy free cream you like, here I have used an oat milk based cream
Corn Free Truffles
As you will see in the recipe, the truffles are coated with powdered sugar, which does contain cornstarch. To make this recipe corn free, you can do the following:
Grind granulated sugar into a fine powder and use that as a coating.
Use a brand that does not have cornstarch in it. I have yet to see one that is corn free. If you know of one let me know in the comments.
Use other toppings to coat the truffles such as sprinkles, or cocoa powder.
Storing the Dairyfree Orange Creamsicle Truffles
You can store truffles in a sealable container until ready to eat. They tend to lose their shape a bit at room temperature, so store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. They will also last longer in the refrigerator.
Different Flavour Variations
Lemon – To make lemon truffles, swap out the orange flavor for lemon flavor extract and use just a drop or two of yellow food coloring
Strawberry – To make strawberry truffles, swap out the orange flavor for strawberry flavor extract and use just a drop or two of red food coloring.
Vanilla – Omit the food coloring and use vanilla extract instead of orange for a wonderful white chocolate truffle.
