It’s that time of year where you start making truffles specially liquor truffles.
I opted for more well known Baileys Truffles, but you can get very adventurous and try whiskey, rum and even kirsch truffles. These may get made over the next week if I get some time!
These little guys do make some good gifts, specially if packaged nicely, either in cup cake boxes and even in cellophane wrap with some ribbon.
I decided to put a few into a cup cake case and then into a matching cup cake box. I do love making edible and DIY Christmas presents, it may cost sometimes more than a box of chocolates, but making it your self adds the extra love!
100g dark chocolate
50ml double cream
2 tbsp Chocolate Milkshake Powder
Break up chocolate and add butter to a glass bowl
Melt the chocolate and butter over steam on the hob, stir every so often but not too much as may go as little lumpy otherwise.
Allow to completely melt and take off the heat.
Add cream and baileys
Whisk well with a fork
Place in the fridge for about 2 hours to set
Using a small scoop roll into a bowl quickly as this can be messy
Roll in a plate of chocolate milk shake powder
Place back in the fridge for another 30mins to set again and enjoy! Keep in the fridge when storing.
