Orange Amaretto Cheesecake Truffles Recipe

I enjoy making truffles during the Holiday season and this year I wanted to make something different other than the traditional truffle flavors.

These cheesecake truffles have a wonderful taste of fresh orange as well as the sweet flavors of almond and subtle cherry. The graham cracker crumbs and cream cheese makes this truffle into a bite-sized cheesecake.

This truffle recipe doesn’t take many ingredients to create and makes a great addition to any dinner or party. It is also a great Holiday treat to give as gifts.

These truffles present beautifully and are packed full of flavor. They’re moist and smooth with the wonderful crunch of graham cracker crumbs. If you’re looking for something different to bring to the table this Holiday season, give these a try!
