Raspberry Truffles

Other liqueurs can be used in place of raspberry liqueur, but raspberry and chocolate make a special combination. These freeze well (well wrapped) for a few months. They should only be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup Chambord or other raspberry liqueur or eau de vie
  • 1/2 cup cocoa, sifted
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds or hazelnuts
