The *best* truffles out there. Easy, and the taste is amazing. Truly one of those 'Bet You Can't Eat Just One' kind of treats. I've been making them for a couple of years now, and they are always a *big* hit. I've used Amaretto, Bailey's and Malibu Coconut Rum. I just buy the little sample size bottles from the liquor store. More than enough to make the recipe.
