Chocolate Christmas Truffles

1/2 cup whipping cream

1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur

2 tablespoons coffee liqueur

1 1/2 teaspoons instant-coffee crystals

1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces

1/4 cup butter

Sifted cocoa powder

1. In a bowl, combine whipping cream, Irish cream liqueur and coffee

liqueur. Stir in the instant-coffee crystals; set aside.

2. In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat.

Remove from heat; gradually stir in cream mixture until blended.

3. Transfer to a bowl; cover tightly and chill in refrigerator about

2 hours or until completely cool and smooth, stirring

occasionally. Mixture will be slightly sticky.

4. Shape tablespoons of candy into balls. Roll each in cocoa powder.

Place on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until firm.

5. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If

you like, roll in additional cocoa powder before serving.

I've been making these for that last three years and they get rave reviews.

You'll have to wash your hands every now and then, they make a mess,

but well worth it.

Also, go to a cake decorating store and get some good cocoa.

And if you want to skip the Kraft products (Kraft is an environmental mess),

Trader Joes has excellent chocolate chips.
