Italian Chocolate Truffles

I really like this recipe for truffles as it doesn't include eggs as some other truffle recipes do.  I made them for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. They kept in the fridge in an air-tight container for over a week and the recipe was requested several times, so here it is:
                                                          Italian Chocolate Truffles

              6 oz. dark chocolate                                        3 Tbsp. sweet butter
              1/2 cup ground almonds                                  1/2 cup confectioners sugar    
              2 Tbsp. orange flavored liqueur                       1 3/4 oz. grated chocolate

Melt the dark chocolate with the liqueur in a double boiler, stirring until well-combined.
Add the butter and stir until melted.  Stir in the confectioner's sugar and ground almonds
Leave the mixture to cool until firm enough to roll into 24 balls.
Roll in grated chocolate to coat.
Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  You may substitute Amaretto for the orange liqueur.
