Baileys Truffles – The Quick and Easy Version

The quick and easy version of my homemade Baileys Truffles. There's no need to temper the chocolate as these are simply rolled in cocoa powder or sprinkles.

Active Time: 20 minutes
chilling: 30 minutes
Servings: 30 chocolates (approx)


  • 400 g milk chocolate
  • 100 ml double cream
  • 100 ml Baileys
  • Sprinkles or cocoa powder - personally I think that candy sprinkles are prettier but chocolate sprinkles taste better so I’d suggest sticking to using them


Make the ganache

  • Break 400g milk chocolate into chunks and pop it into a saucepan. Warm on a VERY gentle heat until all of the chocolate has melted (you can do this over a bain marie or in a microwave if you prefer).
  • Put the double cream (100ml) and Baileys (100ml) into the bowl. Once the chocolate has melted, pour it into the Baileys and cream and stir it rapidly until fully combined (you must stir quickly otherwise the chocolate may seize and go lumpy).
  • Pop it into the fridge for about half an hour to set.

Make the chocolates

  • Get your ganache from the fridge and scoop out balls about 1″ diameter.
  • Spread out your chosen sprinkles/cocoa powder on a clean work surface and roll the truffles in the sprinkles until completely coated.
