  3. Scoop up the chocolate mixture about 1 tablespoon at a time and roll into a 1-inch ball; set truffles on a plate.

The chocolate flavor of the Ghiradelli chocolate chips I used produced a great deep, rich chocolate flavor, however I was disappointed that the Irish Cream flavor was negligible. The truffles were smooth and yummy and everyone enjoyed them.
