Double Chocolate truffles- My 50th post:)))

OK I am back with a chocolate recipe. YES :)!!! I have been saving the best for the last. Trust me- I have my daughters final verdict on this one-She simply  loves  these Double Chocolate Truffles
I hate these snags,do you notice I have just left the space after truffles ,well I wanted to type a word there but it  kept taking me to another line :( I  am helpless when it comes to these concealed problems . OK on a brighter note,my daughter has finished off most Truffles and I am glad I packed the ones which were to go in gift tins, now she just came asking for more.So I will be doing a second round of these on very popular demand:)

Here goes the Double Chocolate Truffles:

Makes about 2 dozen

1/2 Cup whipping cream
1 tbsp butter or margarine
4 bars (1 ounce each) Semi sweet baking chocolate broken into pieces
1 mild chocolate bar(7 ounces,) broken into pieces
1 tbsp amaretto (almond flavored Liqueur) or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp almond extract
Ground almonds

1. Combine  whipping cream and butter in small saucepan.Cook over medium heat,stirring constantly,just until mixture is very hot.Do not boil.Remove from heat ;add chocolate bar pieces and liqueur.Sir with whisk until smooth.

2. press plastic wrap directly onto surface;cool several hours or until mixture is firm enough to handle. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in almonds to coat.Refrigerate until firm,about 2 hours. And Voila enjoy it with a lambic :) Store the remaining ones in a tightly covered container in refrigerator.
