I found the recipe for Baileys Chocolate truffles in a Christmas receipe book that said to use rum, whisky or brandy, but I didn't have any of them, so used Baileys instead. It seemed to work just fine.
Recipe as follows:
125g Dark Cooking chocolate broken into pieces
2 tbsp Baileys
40g unsalted butter, diced
55g icing sugar
Galaxy hot chocolate powder for dusting
The recipe also said to add 55g of ground almonds, but I left these out as I wasn't sure if anyone would have a nut allergy.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, don't let the base of the bowl touch the water.
Remove from the heat, stir in the baileys and leave to cool slightly.
Beat in butter, sugar (and almonds) until thoroughly combined.
Shape mixture into 18 small balls and place on sheet of baking paper.
Sift galaxy hot chocolate onto plate and roll each ball in cocoa to coat.
Place back on baking paper to set.
I put mine in the fridge as I didn't have much time for them to set. They were only in for about an hour.
Store them in a airtight container if they last that long!!
This was the first time I made them and everyone was impressed, it could have been a fluke though!!
