Yep, you guessed it. My latest recipe includes liquor. Hey, what would St. Patricks day be with out some Bailey’s in your life. I found this recipe earlier while searching for some treats to make for our annual family New Year’s Eve party. OMG! It is to DIE for. YUM!

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

irish

Ingredients

* 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 1 cup white chocolate chips
* 1/4 cup butter
* 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
* 1 cup Irish cream liqueur (Bailey’s is the bestest!)
* 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

Top Layer:

* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
* 4 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur (Bailey’s or DIE!)
* 2 tablespoons butter

Directions:

Butter a 8×8 inch pan. In the top half of a double boiler melt the 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup butter until soft enough to stir.

Stir in the confectioner’s sugar and Irish cream until mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts. Place mixture in the prepared pan and lay a sheet of plastic wrap over top; press and smooth top down.

In the top half of a double boiler melt remaining chocolates until soft. Remove from heat and with a fork beat in the butter and Irish cream until smooth. Spread topping over cooled fudge with a knife. If a smooth top is important place plastic wrap over the top. Refrigerate until firm, 1 to 2 hours at least. This fudge can be easily frozen.

Enjoy, and happy St. Patty’s Day!
