  • Chop 1 pkg. chocolate. Bring cream to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat; remove from heat. Add chopped chocolate, butter and liqueur; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Transfer to freezerproof bowl. Freeze 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
  • Roll chocolate mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls, using teaspoon to portion chocolate mixture for each ball; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Freeze 20 min.
  • Chop remaining chocolate; place in heatproof bowl. Place over pan of simmering, but not boiling, water over medium heat. (Be careful to not let water drip into the chocolate or it will become grainy.) Stir 3 min. or until about 2/3 of the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat; stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Dip balls, 1 at a time, into melted chocolate; return to baking sheet. Drizzle with any remaining melted chocolate. Refrigerate 30 min. or until firm.


Omit 1 pkg. of chocolate. Prepare chocolate mixture, shape into balls and freeze 20 min. as directed. Roll in icing sugar or ground nuts.

Non-Alcoholic Variation

Substitute 1 Tbsp. orange zest for the liqueur.

    I love that there are so few ingredients in this recipe. However, I hated forming them into balls - they were too hard to scoop straight out of the freezer, then they were instantly too soft to roll. Next time I'm going to make these as miniature squares instead so I can just cut and dip them.

    I make this each year for my christmas holiday baking box. Everyone loves them. They're a bit finicky to make, but well worth the trouble ;)

    This is a fast, easy and sinfull receipe. I've been asked over and over to do it again. I use different liqueurs each time. Having warm hands I pull out the frozen vegetable bag and keep my hands cold this way when rolling the truffles. Before I roll them I use two baby spoons to form the truffles and place everything back in the fridge until it firms up again before rolling.
