Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I couldn't resist making these! In the end I doubled the recipe & made 1/3 with a combination of almond extract & chocolate syrup, 1/3 with Camp Coffee & 1/3 with orange juice & 1/2 tsp of zest. They turned out brilliant & I boxed some up to give as gifts! Thanks for a great recipe :)
These were ok tasting. Mine turned out dry and didn't want to hold together in balls, even though I followed the recipe exactly. I couldn't get the chocolate shavings to stick to the balls. I used Ameretto for the liqueur but it seemed to total evaporate in the end taste. Sorry, but I don't think I would make these again.
