Dark Chocolate Truffles

Pour hot cream mixture over chocolate and mix until smooth. Add liqueur. When cooled to room temperature mix in the butter. Place in a 9 x 9 glass pan and let crystallize for at least 24 hours. Portion out in 1 tsp amounts. Let sit another 24 hours before coating in tempered chocolate. Decorate with a contrasting tempered chocolate.
