Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Great Chocolate Truffle Recipe Photo with Cointreau

Irresistible Chocolate Cointreau Truffles

Pam likes to keep this Chocolate Truffle Recipe for a special occasion  Birthdays, Anniversaries - Christmas...You can experiment with some of the elements - for example: change the spirit you use - Rum and Brandy are good alternatives.
Pam will sometimes roll the truffles in cocoa powder or icing sugar. Whichever way you dress them up they are always delicious, and so much better than bought ones.
