"No need to buy chocolates for a birthday or special event, these truffles are SO much better than most commercial varieties and are fun to make! Imagine the look on your friend’s faces when they realise that these are artisan truffles made by your own fair hands! Pack them in a pretty box with tissue paper and remind your lucky recipient that they need to be stored in the fridge. Makes about 36 truffles. Not suitable for freezing."

Step 1

Heat cream in a small pan until boiling, remove from heat and add chocolate pieces, stirring until melted.

Step 2

Stir in liqueur and butter, and mix until butter has melted. Pour into a bowl and place in the freezer for about half and hour or until the mixture is firm enough to hold its shape. Using a melon ball scoop or a teaspoon, scoop out rounds and gently roll the truffles in cocoa powder.

Step 3

Place in small paper cases and decorate with nuts or crystallised flowers of you wish. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

I used Bailey's Irish Cream to make these and they were inhaled by family as they passed by the dessert tray! These will be made during the holidays again changing up the liquor. I can't wait to try Kahlua!

I used Baileys in mine. Made them as part of our holiday Christmas party. People seemed to really like them as I saw some stashing them in napkins to bring home. I loved these!

This is so quick and easy to put together, scoops out and rolls beautifully and is a pleasure to enjoy! To mix it up a little I added some instant coffee to the heated cream and used Bailey's as my alcohol. Delicious little morsels!
