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


  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (at least 61 percent cacao), chopped

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur

  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for rolling


  1. Place chocolate in a bowl. Bring cream, Grand Marnier, and salt to a simmer in a small saucepan. Pour over chocolate, and let stand for 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.

  2. Pour chocolate mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish, and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

  3. Scoop balls of chocolate mixture using a tablespoon or a 1-inch ice cream scoop. Roll balls in cocoa powder, tossing, until fully coated. Shake off excess.
