       2 tb Margarine or butter

   Recipe by: Betty Crocker’s Cookbook
   Heat semisweet chocolate in heavy 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring
   constantly, until melted; remove from heat. Stir in margarine. Stir in
   whipping cream and orange-flavored liqueur.
   Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently, just until thick enough
   to hold a shape. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto aluminum foil-covered
   cookie sheet. Shape into balls. (If mixture is too sticky, refrigerate
   until firm enough to shape.) Freeze 30 minutes.
   Heat shortening and chocolate chips over very low heat, stirring
   constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth; remove from
   heat. Dip truffles, one at a time, into chocolate. Place on aluminum
   foil-covered cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle some of the truffles with
   finely chopped nuts if desired.
   Refrigerate truffles about 10 minutes or until coating is set. Drizzle
   some of the truffles with a mixture of 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/2
   teaspoon milk if desired. Refrigerate just until set. Serve at room
   temperature. Store truffles in airtight container.  15 CANDIES; 165
