Butterscotch truffles

1 Place the cream in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil.

2 Place the chocolate in a medium bowl and pour over the cream.

3 Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and using a metal spoon, stir until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Stir in the liqueur.

4 Pour into a lightly greased 20cm x 20cm tin lined with non-stick baking paper and tap the tin to even the mixture.
