Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Truffles | 12 St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Well you probably all saw it coming.  I HAD to make a St. Patrick’s Day version of my truffles because truffles are bite sized and delicious.  Truffles are adorable.  Truffles make people smile.  Are you smiling?  Here, have some.

It’s true – I love creating various holiday themed truffles and these Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Truffles have a “magically delicious” kick that is a little St. Patrick’s Day party in your mouth.

Now don’t get too excited because, as my friend and party co-host Lisa says about her cocktail infused desserts, you are more likely to get a sugar high than to get intoxicated eating these truffles.  So basically these won’t have you dancing any jigs on the coffee table or anything.

Well… ok, they ARE delicious so you just dance away my friend.  If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, I’ve given an alternative in the recipe.

I used white and green candy melts and I personally do NOT recommend adding green food coloring to white candy melts.  Beyond a few drops, the liquid can actually cause the white chocolate to seize up and become unusable.  And, trust me, that is always a sad {and very unlucky} day.

Some of my truffles have a ganache filling and some have a cake based filling and, since I was adding the Baileys Irish Cream, these have a cake base.  I always say that making truffles is a little like adult play dough – your hands will get messy rolling them out but the end result is always so worth it.

Besides, they taste better than play dough.

I took these truffles in to the office and they were an enormous hit.  So much that I even got a couple of emails and a text message later thanking me for sharing them.  And they should thank me because I didn’t want to part with a single one but… it’s all about moderation so, in the end, I shared.

I guess I earned some brownie truffle points, eh?
