Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans plus 1 extra cup to roll truffles in
  • 1 cup 72% Dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream

Instructions

  • Start by reserving 1 cup of the pecans to roll the truffles into at the end.
  • Add the remaining pecans to a food processor and pulse until they are a coarse sand-like texture.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the pecans and graham cracker crumbs.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in intervals of 45-seconds, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Whisk the powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and Irish Cream into the melted chocolate until well combined.
  • Fold the pecans and graham cracker mixture into the chocolate.
  • Cover the bowl with foil and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then add the remaining chopped pecans to a small bowl and set both items to the side.
  • Using a tablespoon or melon baller, scoop out a portion of the mixture and roll into a neat ball using the palms of your hand.
  • Place the rolled truffle onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the truffles are rolled.
  • Finally, roll the Baileys chocolate truffles into the chopped pecans one at a time.

Notes

Store the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Recipe Variations

  • Substitute hazelnuts instead of pecans, which pair well with the flavor of Irish Cream.
  • If you prefer to make these truffles without alcohol, you can replace the Irish cream with liquor with an equal amount of heavy cream and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • Instead of chopped pecans, roll the truffles in cocoa powder or confectioner’s sugar.
