Remove the inner part(s) of a 14cm X 10cm truffle box and line the outer box with plastic wrap. Make sure the plastic wrap also covers the outer sides to keep the box clean.

In a saucepan, heat cream until it almost reaches a boil.

Place chocolate in a bowl. Pour in hot cream and leave for about 30 seconds. (Photo #1)

Using a small whisk, gently stir in a circular motion until the mixture turns to a chocolate color. (Photo #2)

Add melted butter and liqueur. Mix lightly.

Fill the plastic-wrap-lined truffle box with the chocolate mixture. Smooth the surface and refrigerate until firm. (Photo #3)

When the chocolate becomes firm, remove it from the box in the plastic wrap and cut into small pieces using a warmed knife. (Try warming the knife after each cutting to prevent splintering.)

Place cocoa powder in a dish and roll l the chocolate pieces in it. Dust evenly.

Place the chocolate in the inner box of the truffle box. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
