Happy St. Patrick's Day!
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to share these delicious Baileys Oreo Truffles! I love Bailey’s Irish Cream. It is creamy, rich and so easy to sip after dinner. This liqueur is so versatile and can be enjoyed by itself, or in a mixed drink. I have also had much success adding Baileys to coffee, hot chocolate, frosting, pudding and cheesecake.
These truffles are just as heavily as I hoped they would be. The chocolate Oreo’s complemented by the smooth taste of the Baileys, and coated with the crunchy white chocolate makes these little truffles a mouthful of perfection! Hope you enjoy them!
Baileys Oreo Truffle Recipe
Makes approximately 25
3 cups Oreo crumbs (about 30 Oreo’s)
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
White melting chocolate
In a large bowl, mix together Oreo crumbs, powdered sugar, Baileys, and corn syrup. Once all ingredients incorporated together, place into the refrigerator to allow the mixture to set up. This will take about 30 minutes.
Once the mixture has firmed, roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into a ball. Place all the truffles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Again, place the truffles back in the refrigerator for another 25-30 minutes to allow the truffles to firm up and not fall apart in the warm chocolate.
Melt the white chocolate and dip each truffle to fully coat. Place back on the parchment paper to allow the chocolate to harden.
