This was the first time I have ever made truffles as a Valentine's gift for my husband because he LOVES raspberry and chocolate. UNBELIEVABLE! I have a tip that I figured out as I was having a hard time with them melting in my hand while rolling (even though I left it in fridge overnight). I used a soft cold pack from the freezer and touched it with palms before rolling each one. Worked like a dream. The little bottle of Chambord was $3.99 and well worth it! I covered them in various toppings, including dipping them in chocolate. Those were the BEST ones! I will add pictures if I can figure it out!

Fantastic! I only used raspberry jam, not liquor since I didn't have any, and it still turned out fine. Not as raspberry-ish as I would've liked, but still fab. I'll be making these again this year for the hols. I'll have to be mindful this time to make the balls smaller - they are very rich. Delicious and easy!!

YUM!!! Delicious...and quite easy. I did heat the jam jut a tad based on the other posts....covered some in cocoa and the rest in chocolate. Also used watkins raspberry extract instead of the liquor since I already had it...

Thanks for the great recipe!
