Bailey’s Truffles

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of this day I wanted to try something that used irish cream liquor so I ran across this recipe for Bailey’s Truffles a few months ago and saved it for today. I had never actually had Bailey’s before so this was a good excuse to buy some! My husband took classes to get trained as a chocolatier so he’s made real truffles many times but this was my first time trying them. I technically didn’t make real truffles since this chocolate wasn’t tempered but it’s the thought that counts right?

It was pretty easy to throw together the actual chocolate truffle portion of these treats. I found that 1 hour wasn’t enough for these to harden enough to roll without making a mess though so I let it set in the fridge a little longer. I made these and the Irish Cream Cupcakes at the same time so unfortunately I got a little sidetracked at some point and left part of them in a little too long so when I tried to scoop them out they were too hard and somehow it actually broke the cookie scoop so I had to use a larger scoop for the last few.

Because the first few were not hard enough it actually a little messy when I tried to cover it with the white chocolate. It was much better the second time around so keep that in mind. Dusting them with cinnamon sugar and that helped cover some of the messiness of it all though! Visually they looked okay but I think having done it once they would look better after doing it again.

Taste wise they were quite strong but were quite good! I wasn’t sure how the cinnamon sugar would taste in conjunction with the Irish cream but I really liked it. Overall a fun treat for St. Patrick’s Day!
