Chop Candy Melts (you can use a food processor). Heat whipping cream in saucepan just to boiling point. Do not boil. Remove from heat and add chopped Candy Melts, stir until smooth and glossy.
For only ganache, stop after this step.
For Truffles: Add 1 tablespoon liqueur for flavor, at this point, if desired. Stir until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate until firm, roll into 1 in. diameter balls. Can be used as center for dipping, served plain or rolled in nuts, coconut or cocoa powder. Store truffles in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
