    Must it be only chocolate frosting? I can only stand so much chocolate at a time (i.e., I never eat brownies with chocolate chips and I remove any frosting. I was thinking maybe cream cheese frorting instead. Has anyone tried other frostings in this recipe?

    I made half with Triple Sec and half with Bailey's... these are great! I had a little trouble with them melting from the heat of my hands when I rolled them into balls, so after I rolled them, I put them back in the fridge for a while, then brought them out, gave them a quick roll with my hands again to smooth them out and then rolled them in powdered sugar or candy sprinkles. - UPDATE - Made this for my cookie tray and gifts again this year... used chocolate fudge frosting and vanilla cream liqueur. The fudge taste over-powered the liqueur, so I'll stick to regular chocolate frosting next time. I rolled them in cookies and cream sprinkles and kind of mushed the sprinkles right in so they became one with the ball. This worked great because I could put them in with the other cookies in tins and they didn't stick to anything.
