    1. Place the butter in a bowl with the icing sugar and mix until fluffy.
    2. Add the cocoa and whisky or rum and continue to mix. (Adding more than 1 tablespoon of liquid will make it difficult to shape the mixture.)
    3. Shape the mixture into small balls, then roll in shaved chocolate or cocoa powder individually, and place them on a tray. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
