  • 3
    Add the liqueur into the chocolate and stir through. Pour into a bowl and allow to cool in the refrigerator enough to thicken slightly. Stir periodically to insure a smooth mixture

    Once the chocolate is cooled down, they can be finished in two different ways 1) Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip nozzle and pipe the truffles onto parchment paper and refrigerate. 2) Scoop a spoon full of the chocolate mixture into your hand ( wear plastic gloves to do this it is very messy) then quickly roll into a ball, once formed place them back into the refrigerator to firm back up while preparing your garnishes.
