Miller, these just were too easy to whip up, and the flavor was unbelievable. I made the recipe exactly as written (the Drambuie is superb in it - just a hint of flavor, not overpowering at all). However, I could not get the melon baller to work for me - chocolate wouldn't release. I ended up using a spoon and rolling them in my hands - pretty messy. The truffles didn't turn out looking uniform at all - in fact, they look a bit like small cobblestones (but they taste fabulous). I think next time, I'll try some friends' advice and dust my hands with cocoa to shape the truffles and then put them into a shallow sided dish/bowl with cocoa and gently shake to coat with the cocoa powder. Wonderful recipe - thanks so much for sharing!
