Ingredients

 

    • 150ml (¼ pint) whipping cream

 

    • 400g (14oz) white chocolate, melted

 

    • 2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur

 

    • Icing sugar, for coating

 

    • Paper sweet cases

 

 

Method

 

 

    1. Pour the cream into a pan and bring it to the boil.

 

    1. Pour the cream over the melted chocolate and stir until it’s melted, then stir in the Irish cream liqueur — using a stick blender is a good way to ensure that it’s thoroughly mixed.

 

    1. Transfer mixture into a plastic container, or bowl, and leave it to cool. Then chill the mixture for at least 4-5 hours, or overnight.

 

    1. Scoop the mixture out using a melon baller, or teaspoon, and roll into balls.

 

    1. Drop the balls into icing sugar and turn the truffles to coat them. Lift them out of the icing sugar, shaking off any excess sugar and place each sweet in a paper case. The truffles will keep in a cool place for up to 1 week.
