TruffleGod COMMENT: In reference to the lumpy truffles, one possibility is that a little water (perhaps from condensation or a wet utensil) got into the chocolate while you were stirring. Any water getting into chocolate will cause it to seize up.

Guest Foodie COMMENT: Can these truffles be frozen after they're made?

I don't know what the other reviewer did to get a lumpy result. I followed the directions exactly, and my mixture was smooth as silk. But the Bailey's Irish Cream was barely detectable. I was afraid to add more and botch up the recipe, so I added just a bit of pure orange extract and rolled these in finely chopped pecans. Excellent and perfectly smooth. I'd make these again and serve with Baileys as an accompaniment in a beautiful little after dinner glass.

Guest Foodie COMMENT: Regarding other review. If your truffles appear lumpy and not smooth. Use a hand mixer and mix the chocolate, slowly add heavy cream, one tablespoon at a time, and continue beating until smooth and creamy! No troubles, great truffles every time.
