2 tbsp orange-flavored liqueur

8-ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup warmed whipping cream

1 egg yolk

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Finely chopped walnuts or unsweetened cocoa powder or melted chocolate


In food processor or blender jar, combine raisins and liqueur. Coarsely chop raisins; set aside.

In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and butter.

Combine whipping cream, egg yolk and vanilla; gradually blend into chocolate mixture.

Stir in raisin mixture.

Place mixture over ice water; stir until completely cool and slightly thickened. Beat 20 to 30 seconds.

Cover; refrigerate until firm.

Form mixture into 30 small balls; roll each in finely chopped walnuts or cocoa powder.

Or, to dip in melted chocolate, refrigerate balls until chilled. Dip balls one at a time, turning to coat all sides.
