It's a DIY Christmas - Irish Cream Liqueur Truffles

We are giving boxes of truffles, along with the stamped tumbled marble tiles, stamped porcelain magnets (post to come) and chocolate dipped spoons.

One type of truffle included in the box is the Chocolate Irish Cream Liqueur Truffle.

I had to try one (taste testing you know) and these are so freaking good. It is a good thing we are giving them all away. I could see that they would be difficult to resist.

Irish Cream Liqueur Truffles

12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 c heavy cream
1 tbsp sweet butter
2 egg yolks
1/4 c Irish Cream Liqueur (I used Carolan’s)

Melt chocolate, Bailey's and heavy cream together over very low heat.
Whisk in yolks, one at a time; mixture will thicken.
Whisk in butter. Refrigerate overnight, or until firm.
With spoon make small balls.
Roll in your choice of powdered sugar, cocoa, chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc. (I drizzled pink chocolate left over from the peppermint truffles)
How many truffles you get depends on how big or small you make them.
