Really good, really easy, way of achieving good truffles with almost no effort, my kind of recipe. Refrigerator time is cooking time.
- 1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate morsels
- 1⁄4 cup orange liqueur (I have used raspberry or any flavor liqueur you like. or an extract instead)
- 1 (16 ounce) containerof prepared chocolate frosting
- candy sprinkles or coconut (plain or toasted) or cocoa or ground nuts (great with ground pistachios)
- Place semi sweet morsels in a mediun saucepan over low heat; stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat Stir in frosting and liqueur and or an extract of your choice
- Blend well.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
- On a large plate or on waxed paper, place topping or toppings of choice.
- Scoop up truffle mixture into 1 inch balls.
- Drop into topping mixture and roll until well coated.
- Really look good when put into foil or paper candy cups.
- Store in refrigerator.
I made half with Triple Sec and half with Bailey's... these are great! I had a little trouble with them melting from the heat of my hands when I rolled them into balls, so after I rolled them, I put them back in the fridge for a while, then brought them out, gave them a quick roll with my hands again to smooth them out and then rolled them in powdered sugar or candy sprinkles. - UPDATE - Made this for my cookie tray and gifts again this year... used chocolate fudge frosting and vanilla cream liqueur. The fudge taste over-powered the liqueur, so I'll stick to regular chocolate frosting next time. I rolled them in cookies and cream sprinkles and kind of mushed the sprinkles right in so they became one with the ball. This worked great because I could put them in with the other cookies in tins and they didn't stick to anything.
Very easy! I used some strawberry jam instead of the liqueur, but it really didn't even need it! I balled them, cooled them, the re-rolled them before dipping in a chocolate bath. They tasted fudgey, so if you like fudgey they are great!! Thanks for sharing!
VERY simple to make and very inexpensive, too. I used Irish Creame Liqueur and toasted some coconut for the topping and it was perfect. I also used a 2 tsp. melonballer that I keep handy for scooping and it made the perfect sized truffles. A big hit!
