   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/3  c             Heavy cream
                         COATINGS
      1/4  c             Butter or margarine
                         Ground natural pistachio
    6      oz            Pkg semisweet chocolate
                          -- chips
    2      tbsp          Grated orange peel
                         Confectioners' sugar
    1      tsp           Orange extract
                         Chocolate jimmies
 
 Stir the cream and chocolate chips in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat
 until bubbling and chocolate is almost melted.  Remove from heat. Stir until
 the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the
 grated orange peel and orange extract. Pour the mixture into a shallow baking
 pan and refrigerate until firm enough to shape, about 40 minutes.  Meanwhile,
 spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of each coating ingredient in individual shallow
 dishes. Divide the cold chocolate mixture into 24 equal portions.  Roll each
 portion into a ball. Roll the balls in the coatings, 6 per coating, to cover
 completely. Place the balls as they are coated in 1-inch paper or foil bonbon
 cups. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
 
  Makes 2 dozen truffles.
