Chocolate Truffles

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

1 pound chocolate, any flavor or color (dark chocolate!)
1/2 cup creamy liquid (such as heavy whipping cream, or any combination of cream and liqueur, or even the whole amount of Irish Cream Liqueur.)

1/2 pound melted chocolate, for dipping
your choice of sprinkles or candies, or powdered sugar, or whatever, to put on the top

In a glass or ceramic batter bowl, put the 1 pound of chocolate and then pour on the creamy liquid. Melt in microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Add another 20-30 seconds, and then stir to melt, adding more time if needed. . Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours. Scoop it into balls, and then dip each one into the melted chocolate and decorate as desired. Store in an air-tight container in a cool place, not the refrigerator or the freezer. (They could be frozen, but make sure they are really wrapped well.) They can be kept several months in a cool environment. Small paper or foil candy cups are attractive for serving, and for a gift presentation.

Place the chocolate in a glass bowl or cup and heat in microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Heat another 20-30 seconds, and then stir to melt. Do not over heat as it may burn. Also, make sure no liquid gets into the chocolate or it will not melt or mold properly.
