Amaretto Truffles

6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Place chocolate in stainless steel bowl. Combine the cream and butter in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Pour over chocolate. Add Amaretto and stir until smooth. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours or until set.

Shape the chilled mixture into 1-inch balls, rolling with the palms of your hands, and set aside on waxed paper. Chill for 1 hour. Melt milk chocolate. Dip the chocolate balls into milk chocolate and, immediately, roll each in cocoa. Chill.
