Bailey’s Irish Cream dark chocolate truffles. Oh Lord, help me. These are amazing. You must trust me on this one. Due to my crazy schedule as of late, this will probably be the only St. Patrick’s Day recipe I can get up, but at least it’s a good one, right?! And the best thing about these is that they are so rich and decadent, you won’t need to eat many to satisfy your sweet tooth!
The prep for these truffles is super easy. The hard part comes when you are ready to roll them. I don’t think I have ever made more of a mess in my life. Like ever. I highly recommend using a melon baller or a small cookie scoop for this. I had neither, so I used a 1/2 tbs. sized measuring spoon and I had a hard time getting the chocolate out of it. I wanted to really be able to taste the Bailey’s so I added about 4 tablespoons, but you can easily adjust this to meet your own taste. I went for dark chocolate because well, it’s my favorite, but you could also use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate. Whatever you go with though, don’t skimp on the quality. I think the quality of the chocolate really makes a difference with these. And how great would this be with different liqueurs? Experiment away!
