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.

5 Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm.

Almond praline

1 Preheat oven to 200C.

4 Transfer to a food processor and blend until finely chopped.

5 Remove truffle from the tin and bring to room temperature.

6 Cut into 36 even squares and sprinkle over the praline to serve.
