Ingredients

1⁄2 c cream (heavy cream)
6 oz chocolate (sweet, broken up)

Instructions

  1. Boil cream in a heavy saucepan, until it is reduced down to 2 Tbs.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in liquor and chocolate pieces. Stir over a low heat until chocolate melts.
  3. Whisk in the soft butter until smooth, pour into a shallow bowl and chill in fridge until firm, about 1 hour.

Notes

Allow the chocolate truffles to sit at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
