“A melt in your mouth mixture of dark chocolate,Scottish shortbread,and whisky, this is the easiest truffle recipe I've ever made...the Drambuie is subtle so if you prefer a strong taste of it, double the measurement.Chocolate should be 55-70% cocoa solids. This recipe is from "Scot's Cooking" by Sue Lawrence.”
