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



* 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


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!
