How To Make chocolate truffles

  • 1
    Pour cream into a heavy, 2-quart saucepan, bring just to boiling. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips; whisk until melted and smooth. Stir in liqueur. Pour into a medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate about 3 hours or until firm. Drop chocolate mixture by heaping teaspoons onto wax paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze about 45 minutes or until firm. Place coatings in separate bowls. Roll chocolate mixture between your hands to form 1-inch balls. Roll balls in coatings. Cover; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Before serving, let stand 30 minutes at room temperature. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
