A very good, basic recipe! I made a few half-batches to play around with the ingredients and decorating to get the results I wanted. I ended up using half the eggs, omitting the vanilla and adding another 2 tbsp of irish cream. I tried it once with a semi-sweet/unsweet chocolate mix, but the original mix is definitely better. Also, they taste *spectacular* dipped in tempered chocolate - the contrast of textures is just out of this world :)
Rich and smooth. I doubled the recipe with no problem. What a great recipe for our Christmas platter. Thanks for posting.
This is a wonderful truffle recipe - very easy to make, extremely rich and tastes terrific! The Irish Cream flavor is perfect, not too strong or too mild. After I cooked the mixture, it was a bit grainy as the oil had separated slightly from the chocolate (It may have been my brand of chocolate), so I used my hand held beater and whipped the mixture until it was smooth. Perfect! In addition to cocoa, I rolled some of the balls in ground chocolate or ground toasted almonds. I'm adding this recipe to my collection of Christmas candy favorites. Thanks, Ocean~Ivy!
