1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter
2 egg yolks

Melt chocolate over very low heat.  Stir in Bailey's and cream.

Beat egg yolks, stir a small amount of chocolate mixture into eggs, then slowly add the eggs to the chocolate mixture.  Mixture will thicken.  Add butter.

Refrigerate overnight, or several hours.
Using two large spoons or a small ice cream scoop, form small balls.

Roll in powdered sugar, then cocoa.  The brand of cocoa with chocolate bits works nicely.
