  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized stainless steel bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat the cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil.
  4. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir with a whisk until smooth. If desired, add liqueur. Set aside and wait until the mixture is cold enough.
  6. Pour the mixture into chocolate cake, mix well (i'm using my hand covered with plastic gloves). Using your hand, get a small amount mixture and shape into bite size ball.
For Coating:
