Obscenely Easy Truffles
12 oz. milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup sour cream
2 T. liqueur*
Using a double boiler, melt chocolate chips (microwaving seriously alters
the texture and they won’t taste right), stir until smooth. Remove from
heat; stir in sour cream and liqueur. Stir until smooth; mixture will
thicken quickly. **Chill about 2 hours.
By teaspoonfuls, shape into small balls, then roll balls in coating. Place
on naked cookie sheet or pizza pan; chill until firm.
Some combinations that work:
Amaretto – finely chopped almonds
Dark rum – finely chopped walnuts
Bailey’s – confectioner’s sugar or coconut
Creme de Menthe – confectioner’s sugar or green sprinkles
Grand Marnier – unsweetened cocoa powder
**It is also possible to spread the mixture thinly in a flat pan before
chilling and just cut into squares afer it’s chilled. Another possibility is
to put the mixture in a pastry bag and pipe 1″ stars onto a cookie sheet,
then chill. Another option (though one I don’t really recommend)is to just
sit down with the mixture, a spoon and a good book.
