Recipe alert: Go Orange truffles

I have one day to go in my Go Orange 10-day challenge and I'm loving my juicy, Vitamin C packed daily treat. But I have to admit that I haven't had time to do anything very creative with my oranges most days. I've been so busy that it's mostly just been a case of peel and eat. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

However, I did make a delicious breakfast on Monday of orange segments, craisins, ground cardamom, Greek yoghurt and chopped walnuts. That really hit the spot before braving the cold temperature for a bonus public holiday mountain bike ride.

No, you're not experiencing deja vu; you have seen this photo before. Yesterday, actually.

I also tossed a sliced orange into my lunchtime salad one day - something I've done often in the past, just not for a while.

Thinly sliced onion goes SO well with tangy orange.

I have a few new recipes in the works and plan to test them out over the next few days. Orange-blueberry pancakes... an orange infused porridge (yes, I'm having a bit of a breakfast thing at the moment) ...possibly a pudding. If they work, I'll share. :)

What I DID get around to making though, is a variation of my super chocolate truffles. They may not LOOK any different, but these babies taste like Jaffas. Only better. Jaffas for grown-ups.

Try to stop at one. Go on.
They're like little morsels of orangey, chocolatey heaven. The recipe is over here.

More delectable orange treats soon, I promise. :)
