Combine butter and liqueur, blend well.
Stir in enough powdered sugar to make mixture the consistency of craft dough, kneading as necessary.

Place chocolate in top of a double boiler, bring water to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, cook until chocolate melts.
Let chocolate stand over hot water as you mold chocolates.

Freeze about 10 minutes or until firm.
Place one fondant ball in each mold, spoon in additional chocolate to fill molds.
Chill until firm.
