Baileys Truffles

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!IMG_5100

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.IMG_5102

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!IMG_5103

Ingredients
100g dark chocolate
