Grand Marnier gives these truffles a hint of orange flavor. Other liqueurs can be substituted.

This recipe has an amazing taste. I only used 1/2 tsp of orange extract and dipped them in dark chocolate. They turned out amazing! I will be using this recipe again!!

I would guess a teaspoon simply because liqueurs (and extracts) tend to be pretty strong in flavor.

The recipe doesn't say how much Grand Marnier is called for. Does anyone know? A teaspoon or tablespoon? Thanks for your help!
