Baileys Truffles Recipe

Indulge in these rich and creamy Baileys truffles, a perfect blend of chocolate and Irish cream liqueur. These decadent treats are ideal for special occasions or as a luxurious homemade gift.

Ingredients:

  • 200g (7 oz) dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 100ml (3.4 fl oz) Baileys Irish Cream
  • 50g (1.7 oz) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 100g (3.5 oz) heavy cream
  • Cocoa powder, for coating
  • Optional: finely chopped nuts or chocolate sprinkles for coating

Instructions:

  1. Heat the Cream: In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Do not let it boil.
  2. Melt the Chocolate: Place the chopped dark chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and butter. Let it sit for a minute to melt the chocolate.
  3. Mix: Stir the mixture until smooth and fully combined. If the chocolate hasn’t melted completely, you can microwave it in 10-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
  4. Add Baileys: Stir in the Baileys Irish Cream until fully incorporated.
  5. Chill: Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm enough to scoop.
  6. Form Truffles: Using a melon baller or a teaspoon, scoop out small portions of the chocolate mixture and roll them into balls between your palms.
  7. Coat Truffles: Roll each truffle in cocoa powder, or if desired, in finely chopped nuts or chocolate sprinkles.
  8. Chill Again: Place the coated truffles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.

Serving:
Serve chilled or at room temperature. Store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Enjoy your homemade Baileys truffles!
