I found this recipe online years ago. It's simple and you can use any flavor of alcohol to substitute for the Grand Marnier.

Like Farm Gal I found it to be too runny but after adding 1 cup of white choc pieces it stiffened sufficiently.

These have a sinfully terrific taste (used Bacardi Gold Rum in them) BUT, they were way too runny to even attempt to make a ball - even after overnight in the fridge. So we just spooned it out of the pan. Next time will try to cut back on the "wet" ingredients a bit to try to thicken it a little more.
