2 T butter, cut up
2 T heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 T liqueur (to 2 T)

~Chocolate Coating~
4 oz Ghirardelli Bittersweet chocolate
2 t Peanut, almond, or walnut oil

For Truffles: In double boiler, melt broken chocolate,
stirring constantly. (Or microwave 2 1/2 to 3 minutes
on medium.) Remove chocolate from heat; blend in butter.
Stir in cream, then liqueur. Combine with chopped nuts
or candied fruit if desired. Chill 10-15 minutes, stirring
frequently until thick enough to hold a shape. Drop by
heaping teaspoon onto foil lined baking pan. Shape round,
if desires. Cover and freeze 20-30 minutes to set truffles
firm for dipping with chocolate. For a variety of truffles,
repeat the recipes using liqueurs such as Grand Mariner,
Amaretto, Kahlua, Creme de Menthe.

For Coating: Melt chocolate as directed in basic truffle
recipe. Remove from heat and stir in oil. Cool chocolate
to 85-90 degrees F for dipping. Dip cold, firm truffle
into melted chocolate, holding with a fork and spooning
with several coats of chocolate. Place each onto foil
lined baking pan. Decorate top with nuts, candied fruit,
etc. Chill at least 2 hours to set chocolate. Roll in
