Homemade Orange and Raspberry Chocolates {Just Like Those from a Box}

Orange Chocolates_

A homemade box of chocolates makes the perfect holiday gift. Really how wouldn’t love to receive a big box of chocolates.

These orange and raspberry chocolates are a favorite in my family.

When my daughter tasted the orange version of these she said “Mom these taste just like the kind you get in a box of chocolates.” And I was so happy, because that is just what I was hoping for.

Because of my daughter’s nut and peanut allergy, boxes of chocolate are pretty much off limits for our family. They just aren’t safe because even the non-nut ones have too high of a risk of cross contamination.

So, these homemade fruit chocolates work great for us.

You can really use any extract for these. Lemon is good and I think cherry would also be good. If you make up several flavors of these and place them in tins or boxes, they would make a unique and delicious gift. And also a pretty inexpensive gift to give.
