If you’ve got a candy thermometer and a sweet tooth, cookbook author and food stylist Annie Rigg has Sweet Things, a whole pile of delicious treats for you to make for friends, family…yourself…really, anyone who comes to mind. With foolproof instructions from a master confectioner, homemade chocolate truffles are well within reach.

Serve these rich, sophisticated bite-sized truffles after dinner with coffee. If you want to take them to another level, and blood oranges happen to be in season, I urge you to use them — bitter caramel and blood-orange juice is a marriage made in heaven; add to that some good-quality chocolate and you’ve got yourself one really fancy truffle.
