Irish Cream Truffles

Believe it or not, summer is almost over and thoughts sometimes jump ahead. When entertaining, these are to be considered a gift from heaven…..even your hips will agree!

 

  • 8 oz. good quality milk chocolate
  • 4 oz. good quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Irish Cream liqueur
  • 1 glass for you (just kidding)
  • 1/3 cup pure cocoa
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar or finely chopped pistachios

Chop the chocolate and put in a food chopper, process until fine.

In a saucepan, combine the cream, salt and butter until boiling. Add the chocolate and stir until combined. Place in a plastic container and cover, putting in the refrigerataor to chill and become firm.

Use a fruit baller or tsp, drop onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet, gently roll until completely round and roll in the cocoa or icing sugar or nuts. Yumm.

You can only test 1……okay 2…..quality control calls for 3….get my drift? WOW!

 

** you can use any yummy liqueur you like – white chocolate, kahlua, whatever you prefer.
