Triple Play: Chocolate, Almond, and Grand Marnier Balls

Who won't love the combined tastes of these three favorite ingredients? Chocolate, Almond, and Grand Marnier

It's a playground for the tastebuds - lovers of chocolate and almonds get to join together with those who love liqueur. And there you have it - holiday balls that are easy to prepare. They're great for parties or bundled as little giveaways during the Christmas season.

You'll need a food processor or blender to do the job, but these holiday chocolate balls will taste best when made ahead of time. If planning to serve at a party, make them one week in advance. They'll keep even longer, but store them in the fridge, separated by wax paper and sealed tightly.

Chocolate, Almond, and Grand Marnier Balls
(makes about 4 dozen)

9 ounces chocolate wafers or cookies
1 cup almonds, whole
1 ½ cups confectioner's sugar (for mixing)
1 cup confectioner's sugar (for coating the finished balls)
½ cup Grand Marnier
2 ½ Tablespoons light corn syrup

Pulverize the chocolate wafers and almonds in a food processor or blender. Add the confectioner's sugar and continue grinding. Pour in Grand Marnier and corn syrup. Continue processing until the mixture turns to a moist, but firm, dough. Remove and form pieces into balls (about 1 inch in diameter each).

Place the remaining one cup of confectioner's sugar in a bowl or pan. Add a few balls at a time and roll. (You can also use a baggie and shake the balls gently to coat). Store in refrigerator until ready to serve (build layers divided by wax paper and place in a tightly sealed container).
