22 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
2 tablespoons brandy, Chambord or rapsberry brandy

In a 1-quart glass measure, combine 10 ounces chocolate and butter. Heat in a microwave oven on high 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, until melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in jam and liqueur until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.

Using a melon baller or small ice cream scoop, scrape mixture into 1-inch balls. (If mixture is too hard, let stand at room temperature 1/2 hour before shaping). Place truffles on wax paper-lined baking pan and freeze firm 1 hour or longer.

In a small glass dish, place remaining 12 ounces chocolate. Heat in a microwave oven on medium 3 to 3 1/2 minutes, stirring often, until melted, smooth and warm. Using a fork, dip truffles quickly, one at a time, into chocolate, tapping fork on edge of dish to shake off excess. Place on wax paper lined baking pan. Repeat dipping process, stirring chocolate often and scraping down sides of dish, if necessary, to prevent chocolate from hardening. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 1/2 hour. Wrap in an air tight container and store in refrigerator 2 weeks or in freezer 1 month.

Serve in paper candy cups.

Truffles can also be rolled in finely chopped nuts and sifted cocoa powder instead of dipped in chocolate. Roll in nuts or cocoa immediately after shaping into balls. Store in regrigerator or freezer as directed above.
