Irish Cream Truffles

These Irish Cream Truffles are easy to make and worth every bite. They make a nice homemade gift or keep them for yourself.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Whipping Cream

1 Pound High Quality Real Bittersweet Chocolate Broken Into 1 Inch Pieces

4 Ounces High Quality Real Milk Chocolate Broken Into 1 Inch Pieces

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

¼ Cups Butter

3 Tablespoons Irish Cream Liqueur

2/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa

In a 2 quart saucepan place the whipping cream, bittersweet chocolate and milk chocolate. Cook over a low heat for 4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Stir in the vanilla and salt. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and Irish Cream Liqueur. When the butter has melted pour the truffle mixture into a medium size bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. You want the mixture to be firm. Remove from the fridge and set on the counter for a few minutes. In a medium size shallow bowl sift the cocoa. With a tablespoon scoop out rounded tablespoonfuls of the chocolate mixture. Drop each one into the cocoa and roll to coat. Shape into balls and roll in the cocoa again. Gently place onto a tray and refrigerate them for 45 minutes until firm. Store refrigerated. Makes 36 truffles.
