    Made these for my Christmas Party using Caramel Baileys-- great rich and creamy truffle. I also had a little trouble making them into balls at first, but it really helps to put the chocolate mixture in the freezer for about 10 minutes before trying to roll. Also I kept powdering my hands in confectioners sugar before shaping them into a ball which really made it easier. Thanks for posting! : )

    These are great. I make them twice a year for a 95 year old Irish Priest I know and he LOVES them, so do I! They do need to be refrigerated to shape easy. THANKS<br/>'

    I found this same exact recipe at the website and almost posted it! I'm not a drinker and I received a bottle of Irish Cream (not Bailey's but another brand) in an office gift exchange and am looking for recipes to use it in. Thanks so much for posting and it sounds good!

    Very good taste but the devil of a time rolling; not your fault, it's so darn hot here the chocolate kept melting in my hands-this ain't your everyday M&M! I've had to do these in small batches because of the heat otherwise these do rate 5 stars and I'm adding this recipe to my Christmas Candy list. This was a good one poo, TFS Made this for ZWT3
