Christmas Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Hey Guys!

Its day 14! And time for my first festive recipe! Whoop whoop! This is actually a recipe that I wanted to do last year, but didn’t have the time for. And that is Christmas Chocolate Truffle Recipe. I originally found this recipe on Cupcake Jemma’s YouTube channel, but have slowly customised it to my preferences…. like a lot. But anyway, without further ado, here is my recipe for Christmas Chocolate Truffles.

Bailey’s Truffles

What You Will Need:

150ml Double Cream

25g Butter

150g Dark Chocolate

2tbsp Bailey’s Cream

More Dark Chocolate To Decorate

How To Make:

  1. First, finely chop your chocolate
  2. Melt your cream and butter together in a small sauce pan, until bubbles start to appear on the surface
  3. Once the bubbles have started to appear, remove it from the heat and pour the contents over your chocolate
  4. Let this sit for a minute, and then start to stir it
  5. As you stir it together the chocolate and cream will combine and turn really smooth and glossy. This is your basic truffle recipe
  6. Now, add your bailey’s. Obviously you could add a little bit more if you wanted more of a kick, or a different drink if you prefer
  7. Once everything is well combined, pop your mixture into a container, cover it and pop it in your fridge to chill for a few hours
  8. Once it has chilled it is time to form your truffles. A melon baller works really well for this, but if you don’t have one you can use your hands. Essentially you need to get about a teaspoons worth of mixture (general truffle size) and roll it into a ball (I would suggest wearing gloves for this as these bugers are melty
  9. Once you have all your mixture rolled, you need to melt some more chocolate. You can either use a bain marie, or a microwave for this.
  10. Next, dip your truffle balls into the melted chocolate. I find it is easiest to drop one in, then turn it about with a fork to get it all coated. Then I use that fork to gently lift it out the chocolate, shake of the excess and then pop it to one side to set (I usually pop them on a cooling rack so any excess can drip off.
  11. And that’s it. those are your bailey’s truffles.

  6. Next stir in your crushed shortbread
  7. Once everything is well combined, pop your mixture into a container, cover it and pop it in your fridge to chill for a few hours

And that’s it. those are my three go to truffle recipes. Once you have the basic truffle recipe you can really do whatever you want with it. in the past I have added grand marnier to make boozy chocolate orange truffles, added crushed almonds, coconut, you name it, you can probably do it. I do also have a recipe for white chocolate truffles, if you want me to share that one, let me know. Also, I would love to see if you try this recipe, you can tag me on social media or use #efrtruffles. I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again tomorrow.
