Chocolate truffles without cream (or butter)

Recipies for chocolate truffles are common, but they always include cream, and the truffles have to be stored in the fridge. Here's an alternative.

2 x tablespoons of icing sugar
4 x tablespoons of amaretto
6 x tablespoons of ground almonds
125 gm 70% Swiss chocolate

Melt the 125 gm of chocolate in a bowl. Mix in the other ingredients. You're left with something which is malleable and can be formed into chocolate truffle size pieces.

Leave to set for a few hours at room temperature.

Coat in (more) chocolate.

Brandy can be substituted for amaretto. Finer ground almond equals smoother truffle, it can be sieved to make it finer.
