Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Cherry Truffle Cups: Omit pecans. Substitute 2 tablespoons cherry liqueur for the praline liqueur. Place candied cherry half in each cup before filling with chocolate mixture.

    Crème de Menthe Truffle Cups: Substitute 1/4 cup finely ground almonds for the pecans and 2 tablespoons crème de menthe for the praline liqueur.

    Raspberry Truffle Cups: Omit pecans. Substitute 2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur for the praline liqueur. Place fresh raspberry in each cup before filling with chocolate mixture.

  • You can find tiny paper candy cups in the baking section of most grocery stores. If your store doesn't carry them, check out a cake decorating supply store or mail-order company.
  • A food processor is the best tool for finely grinding pecans. Use quick pulses to avoid turning the pecans into an oily mess.
