Rich Boozy Baileys Chocolate Truffles - No Added Sugar

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! :)

Notes:

  • 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.
