Bailey's Chocolate Truffles
After sampling some delicious bailey's flavoured milk chocolate at a trade show recently, I set off in search of a way to make my own Baileys Chocolate. So, following much searching, I finally adaped a recipe I found on another blog. (http://burgersandbratwurst.blogspot.com).
12 oz milk chocolate (the better quality chocolate you use, the better they will turn out)
8 oz cream cheese (I used light to cut down on the fat)
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp Baileys
In a bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth, then slowly add in the powedered sugar while beating until it is blended.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stiring coccasionally until it has liquified. Then add the melted chocolate and the baileys to the creamcheese mixture and mix well.
Refigerate for one hour.
Shape into balls. At this point you can roll the balls in melted semi-sweet chocolate, this cuts the sweetness level of the truffel a little.
Referigerate another hour until hardened.
This can also be made with dark instead of milk chocolate for a less sweet treat.
Everyone who tried these loved them! People were split over which they liked better, the plain ones or the ones dipped in chocolate.
