    Debber's Note:

    What a sweet addition to the holiday platter of Christmas cookies and confections! A bit fussy to make, but WELL WORTH the time and satisfaction of making your own. COOKING TIME includes "standing time" and chilling time....so don't just STAND there--CHILL out darling! Ho Ho Ho! Those gals at Gooseberry Patch sure know what they're doing, now don't they!?

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    First part

    Second Part

    • 24 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup whipping cream
    • 6 tablespoons butter, pieced out
    • 4 tablespoons almond liqueur

    White Chocolate Variation or Substitutions

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350; buttter a 10x15 jelly roll pan; set aside.
    2. 2
      Stir together pecans, brown sugar and 4 T. whipping cream; spread in prepared pan; bake for 20 minutes (coating will be slightly crystallized); stir one time; remove from oven; stir the whole works (should be of "chopped nuts texture/consistence"--will be used for rolling the truffle/chocolate in later on) and cool.
    3. 3
      Microwave the chocolate chips and remaining cream in a large bowl--about 3-4 minutes; whisk several times until smooth (microwave at 15-second intervals to prevent burning); whisk in the butter pieces and the almond liqueur; let stand 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Beat the chocolate mixture with an electric mixer for 4 minutes or until SOFT PEAKS form (do not overbeat!); cover and chill at least four hours.
    5. 5
      Shape chocolate into one-inch balls, roll in pecan-sugar; cover and chill up to one week (who are we kidding? these will NOT last for one week!) or freeze for up to a month (seriously!?).
