Works well, tastes great, not overly sweet. Inspired by the photo, I rolled some of the truffles in powdered sugar, some in cocoa powder, some raspberry cocoa mix and some in finely-chopped pistachios. The irish cream went well with all of those flavors.

These were my first attempt at truffles and they turned out pretty good! I found them very easy to make I only wish the baileys flavor stood out a bit more. Other than that they were very good and I ended up rolling mine in powdered sugar and cocoa. I didn't wait very long before rolling them so they were semi melting in my hands before I was done, but it wasn't really a problem... I put them back in fridge after coated and I am just waiting til they harden up again to dig in... I did sneak one with powdered sugar though and it was yummy with such a nice rich soft inside! a little while later.... I have tried both varieties now and I have to say the cocoa ones are my favorites and the baileys seems to stand out a bit more in them too. SOOOOO yummy!

Absolutely awesome, I used an expensive chocolate and it made all the difference, I made bittersweet and white choc ones, and made choc moulds and put the truffle in them, the white ones were the best truffles I have ever made, thanks for the brilliant recipe.
