Place the chocolate pieces in a heat-proof bowl. On the stovetop, heat the heavy cream just to boiling and then pour the cream over the chocolate. Let this sit for one minute and mix in the Grand Marnier and orange zest until it is well blended and smooth. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mixture overnight.
After chilling the mixture overnight, use a small scoop or spoon to form 1-inch balls and place them on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Place the tray in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to firm up the truffles before rolling each one into a ball. Coat each truffle in cocoa powder or pecan/orange zest mixture, or both! Truffles will keep refrigerated for up to a week.
Serve these elegant treats with a fine coffee, Chai tea or Champagne.
