When liking coffee is part of adulting, enjoying liquor is the next half! Presenting my liquor-infused Baileys Chocolate Truffles that are so ever luxurious and classy. The addition of Baileys liquor will be sure to notch up your usual truffles and with this recipe, wow your guests!
The concept of my Bailey Chocolate Truffles uses a simple recipe of whisking and mixing. However, I went a step further (optional) to coat it with tampered chocolate before adding my toppings. Therefore, it holds its shape well even in tropical temperatures.
Should you want to skip the trouble of tampering, it is perfectly fine as well. In order to coat, simply use a small fork and roll the assembled chocolate truffle around your desired toppings. Nonetheless, be careful working with its especially in warmer climates!
For myself, I have chose to coat it with lightly toasted coconut, white chocolate and roasted peanuts! Feel free to creative with these sweet treats!
On a side note, you can tell I am really proud of these when I use a larger image than what I use usually.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe!

These classy liquor-infused Baileys Chocolate Truffles will be sure to elate your guests. Each bite comes with sheer indulgence!
275g or approx 2 and 1/3 Cup of Dark Chocolate Chips (Couverture)
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons or 25g of Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 Cup or 60g of Baileys (I used Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake, Irish Cream works just as well)
Extra chocolate (if tempering)
Placing a metal bowl over a saucepan (medium-low heat), heat up the heavy whipping cream slightly.
Then turn the flame to low and stir in the dark chocolate until they all melt. Do not overheat.
Next, turn off the heat. Set aside and let cool for 3 minutes.
After which, stir in the Baileys or other liquor and mix until it forms a single, glossy consistency.
Transfer it to the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours or until you can comfortably form shapes. If using a mould, pour it directly into the desired mould and unmould after 1 to 2 hours.
Roll into small balls of chocolate truffles and coat in your desired topping.
Serve and enjoy!
Yield: 14 Mini Chocolate Truffles
