When you don't feel like drinking booze anymore, you simply go ahead and add it to the food you eat! Ha!
Okay, that line may be misleading but I had a big bottle of Baileys untouched since November and decided to do something about it. So I got this recipe from the Balieys website and decided to go with it. In the middle of the recipe I got a little greedy and decided to add more Balieys than recommended and that lead to this recipe. You could either follow the recipe on the website (below) Or give mine a try :) or if you decide that you want to try something of your own. Do let me know how it goes :)
A bit about my pretty dessert stand: that beauty you see in the picture was a gift from my aunt who visited from the US and decided to carry it with her throughout the way. I was so touched and this is one thing that I will always remember. Thank you so much Rama Aunty! :)
- Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler and remove from heat when done.
- In the mean time, take the fresh cream and Baileys in a separate container and mix well
- Add the fresh cream and Baileys mixture and add it to the melted chocolate and butter and mix well.
- Allow the mixture to cool and add 200 grams breadcrumbs and mix well. (See note)
- Take small pieces of the mixture and set it into desired shape, and roll in the breadcrumbs set aside then in cocoa powder.
- Freeze for 1 hour and serve
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Do let me know if you try it out :) You can either leave a comment here or you could write to me on myfoodchakra[at]gmail.com. Don't forget to follow the blog if you haven't :)
- Double boiler: Take a large pan of water and set it to boil, Take a smaller bowl so that it goes into the pan. Add chocolate and allow it to melt.
- Breadcrumbs are added to get rid of the gooey texture of the mixture, add breadcrumbs accordingly.
- You could substitute the breadcrumbs with crushed digestive biscuits, which could add a crunchy texture to the chocolate truffle.
- The number of pieces is an approximation, this depends on the portions you take to make individual pieces.
