Chocolate Truffles

The delicious-ness scale for chocolate truffles goes up and down based on the chocolate used to make the truffles.  The better the chocolate, the better the truffles.  It's like cooking with wine, when you cook with a wine that you don't think is delicious, that's exactly what you'll get from your food - something not so delicious.

I recommend getting something that is 60% cocoa or more.

The liqueur you choose depends on the taste you're looking for.  Since Cointreau is from the town in which I lived in France, Angers, I am partial to it's strong orange flavor.

This recipe makes about 50 scrumptious super chocolatey melt-in-your-mouth treats. 

Hint:  Gently shake the truffle after you roll it in the cocoa, too much cocoa powder can leave an itchy sensation in the back of the throat.
