      Truffles are my favorites and I make a few batches for each holiday. These were really yummy and easy, too. They were very rich, creamy and smooth. I decorated them for Easter because we had a belated Easter get-together with my family. Everyone loved these. I used raspberry and orange extracts- 1 tsp. each, dark chocolate for the centers and semi-sweet for the dipping. My little girl had fun sprinkling them with assorted sugars and doo-dads. The only thing I will change next time (and there will be a next time) is I will reduce the butter by about half. A quarter cup will be fine. Thanks for posting this. It's a keeper. Made for PRMR tag game.

      I love chocolate truffles, and these are rich and delicious! The centers melt in your mouth even chilled. The liqueur flavor was a bit strong at first, but after sitting in the fridge overnight has toned down and is just right. I think Chambord or blackberry schnapps would work very nicely as well. Thanks for posting!
