      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!
