Chocolate Irish Whiskey Truffle

Rich, moist, creamy, and really yummy these chocolate Irish whiskey truffles are so cute and special! They look and taste so perfect, you can easily confuse them with luxurious store-bought truffles, which makes them an ideal gift for your loved ones.

Serving 36-38 pieces

Ingredients:

  • 160 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 180 grams dark chocolate
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 35 grams unsalted butter
  • 30 grams cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Irish whiskey

Paper truffle cups (optional)


Instructions:

  • First, break the dark chocolate into pieces and process it with a blender or food processor until you get a fine floury mixture.
  • Then, in a saucepan, pour the cream, Irish whiskey, and butter and stir over medium heat; bring to simmer. Next, apply the mixture into the food processor/blender over the blended chocolate and process until smooth and well combined.
  • Apply the yogurt and process again for a few seconds; transfer the mixture (that will be really liquid at this stage) into a medium bowl; let it cool entirely.
  • Once chilled, cover with plastic cling film and refrigerate for 5-6 hours (ideally overnight) in order to thicken.
  • When truffle batter has set, place the cocoa onto a flat plate. Using a heaped half teaspoon, take some of the mixtures, roll each truffle into a ball and then roll it into the cocoa. Place into a paper truffle cup or arrange in a serving dish.
  • Apply the cookies in a box or other container; cover and keep refrigerated.

Enjoy!
