Baileys Fudge Truffles Recipe

Truffles are a very special kind of dessert. With a decadent filling, some truffles are coated with chocolate or in this case, it is coated with a chocolate powder dusting. Truffles are rich because of the high fat content, and they are sweet without being too sweet to enjoy.

Ingredients You Will Need

  • Heavy whipping cream – This adds a richness to these truffles. You want to use heavy cream and not half and half or milk.
  • Bittersweet chocolate chips – Bittersweet chocolate chips are perfect because it cuts some of the richness from the truffles while still giving an amazing chocolate flavor.
  • Unsalted butter – You want the butter to be unsalted. You don’t need the salt in this recipe.
  • Bailey’s Irish cream– While this is an alcoholic, you only need a small amount. This keeps the alcoholic levels in each almost nonexistent. If you prefer an alcohol free option, you can use Bailey’s Irish Cream coffee creamer
  • Hershey Cocoa Powder – This is what the truffles get coated with at the end.

How to Make Bailey’s Fudge Truffles

Heat the heavy cream on the stove and place the chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl.

Once the heavy cream is heated to the point of steaming, pour it over the chocolate chips and let it sit for 2 minutes.

Stir it together to melt the chips and it becomes smooth.

Then add the butter and Bailey’s cream.

Line a 8×8 square dish with parchment paper

Stir it well and add it to the prepared dish and place it in the refrigerator overnight.

Take the ganache mixture out of the refrigerator and scoop the ganache mixture.

Then roll each scoop into a ball.

Place the ball onto a baking sheet.

Add cocoa powder to a bowl and roll each ball into the cocoa powder.

Place the coated truffle onto the cookie sheet and enjoy.

How Long Can You Store Homemade Truffles?

When you store these homemade truffles at room temperature, they will last for about 2 weeks. If you store the truffles in the refrigerator, which I recommend, the truffles will last up to 6 months.

Are These Truffles Gluten Free?

While the ingredients in these truffles are gluten free, there might be a risk of cross contamination from where they were packaged. You will want to check the packaging.
