Chocolate Christmas Truffles

1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
1/2 cup whipping cream
1-1/2 teaspoons instant-coffee crystals
1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces
1/4 cup butter
Sifted cocoa powder

In a bowl, combine whipping cream, Irish cream liqueur, and coffee liqueur. Stir in the instant-coffee crystals; set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove from heat; gradually stir in cream mixture until well blended.

Transfer to a bowl; cover tightly and chill in refrigerator about 2 hours or until completely cool and smooth, stirring occasionally. Mixture will be slightly sticky.

Shape tablespoons of candy into balls. Roll each in cocoa powder. Place on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until firm.

Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If you like, roll in additional cocoa powder before serving.

Makes 18 ounces candy.
