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!!

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!

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!

Amazing! I substituted Raspberry Extract for the liquer as I am giving them as gifts and some of the people on my list are devout non drinkers and I feel better about my kids eating them as well! Also it is much more economical for me to buy a small bottle of extract over a bottle of liquer that I most likely would never use.
I would reccomend adding the butter and jelly right away, or heating your jelly before adding it as I hard to heat the mixture up a bit to get the jelly to mix in all of the way. I also covered mine in Chocolate Bark as I thought that may hold up better to shipping as the filling was very soft.

wonderful recipe! I found them a little hard to roll and i dipped them is chocolate for the hard shell. These were well worth the time and I will make them again.

These tasted very good! We will absolutely have them again. I had a little trouble with the raspberry jam oozing out of the truffle a little bit. I am thinking it should have been heated a little longer to make it melt. But this did not detract from the taste! Very, very good!

Very rich, but very good! I subsituted 1/2 t. raspberry candy oil for the liquor, and rolled in powdered sugar. I froze them for about 2 weeks. The texture was fine, but they needed a light touch-up of powdered sugar. Will definetly make this again!
