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!

Great recipe. I used strawberry frosting and omitted the orange liqueur and they tasted great. Very easy and made great gifts.

Very good! This is more like the creamy inside of a truffle... you could always make smaller balls and dip those in semi-sweet chocolate. I tried the cocoa powder coating and did not like that.. it flies off when you bite into it. I used a homemade chocolate frosting and triple sec. Thanks for the recipe, it was very easy.

WOW - so simple to make, yet so rich and tasty. Thanks for a recipe that made me look like a pro. I made one batch with Kaluha and another with Amaretto. They both turned out great! I had trouble with them melting in my hands when rolling, but washed my hands under cold water and that seemed to help for a bit. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Very rich treats that are so simple to prepare. Not exactly like the truffles I have had, but very tasty none the less. I rolled some in cocoa, some in powdered sugar and some in finely chopped pecans. The orange flavor is subtle, yet just the thing to make these special.

I took these to a girls night out dinner. They were very easy and everyone was impressed. I used amaretto because that was what I had. I rolled them in jimmies and the colors made a pretty presentation.

These were quick and easy... and delicious. Quite rich, but delicious. I used black raspberry liqueur - delightful. I didn't have any nuts, but I think I'll use them next time. These aren't exactly truffles as I know them, but I doubt I'd be willing to take the time to do the real deal.
