DIY Baileys Christmas Truffles: 4 Ingredients & Zero Baking!


This quick and easy recipe combines quite a number of things which I find delicious: Baileys, truffles, chocolate and cream!! Plus, there is ZERO baking required – aren't these Baileys Christmas Truffles ideal for Christmas?

There are a few recipes round the web for these delicious truffles, so you can google for variations if you wish. Here's a quick breakdown of what you need to do.


  • 3 tablespoons of Baileys
  • 10oz dark choc chips
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 150ml whipping cream

What to do:

  1. Melt the butter and cream in a pan until gently boiling.
  2. Put the chocolate chips in a bowl.
  3. Pour the butter/cream over the choc chips & leave for a few minutes.
  4. Stir the mixture gently.
  5. Add the Baileys & stir it up.
  6. Pop the mixture in the fridge for 3 hours.
  7. Shape it into individual balls.
  8. Decorate with colourful sprinkles!

In step 4, if the latent heat from the melted butter didn't melt your choc chips thoroughly, then just pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds to finish it off.

What do you think? Will you give these Baileys Christmas Truffles a try?

Now excuse me, I'm running out to buy a bottle of Baileys.

      Looks delicious! But what do you mean by "3x" and "2x" tablespoons?
      • Anna W.
        It just meant the numbers, I changed it to clarify :)

        How many does this recipe make?
        • Anna W.
          Depends what size your balls are! Sorry, i'm not sure hunny :) Because you can make the balls as large or as small as you wish...

          Why are you mixing metric measurements with imperial measurements? Confusing.
          • miss g.
            Mixing measurements comment: 1. Your measuring spoons are probably in teaspoons and tablespoons 2.Chocolate chips are sold in packages with weights in oz 3. Whipping cream is sold in ml This is Canada. We never fully switched over to the Metric system. People still tell you their height in feet and inches and their weight in pounds. Just make the truffles and let us know how they turned out, eh?

                    hi these look great but I was wondering about storage, do they need to be stored in the fridge ? Thanks 

                    • Eryn

                      They should be stored in the fridge just to be on the safe side. They do look great!

                        I made these, though they're tasty, they did not have the consistency to be turned and rolled as truffles, they were more like dollops of ganache. Sadly, they will not be on my Christmas cookies list...:(
