  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 T. cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup amaretto liqueur
  • 1 cup finely chopped, toasted almonds (optional)

Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. Add egg yolks to the mixture and beat well. (It will begin to thicken.) Add cream cheese and amaretto and mix until smooth. Cover and chill until firm, about 1 to 2 hours.

Shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls; roll in almonds or other topping of your choice.

To serve, pour about 2 tablespoons amaretto into a wine glass. Place truffle in the glass and top with whipped cream.

Makes 36 truffles.

Yes, when I made the truffles, I kept them in the fridge to keep them firm and fresh. They are delicious, though. I hope you enjoy!

With those eggs and cheese in them, the article does not state whether they must be kept in the refrigerator or not. I think that is somewhat important, no?
