You wouldn't believe how easy and fast these are to make! I think these are the best truffles I have ever eaten! I actually melted the chocolate chips in the microwave instead of using a double boiler (45 seconds on high, stirred and then 25 second more and stirred until melted), which made this even faster and easier. I used espresso coffee in place of the liquer and it worked perfectly. The recipe doubled well. I will be serving them at my sister's bridal shower on Sunday--I can't wait to see everyone's reaction! I wish I could rate this 10--no 100 stars! Thank you for a fabulous recipe, s'kat!
