Ingredients
  • 100 ml double cream
  • 100 ml Baileys
  • 40 g light muscovado sugar
  • 300 g Menier dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
  • 25 g unsalted butter (softened & cubed)
  • salt
  • 200 g Menier milk chocolate
  • Menier cocoa powder (to dust)
Instructions
  1. In a pan heat the cream, baileys and sugar over a gentle heat until it begins to boil. Allow to simmer for a minute and remove from the heat and cool for 2 minutes.
  2. Place the dark chocolate and butter into a large heatproof bowl and pour over the cream & baileys mixture. After a couple of minutes stir well until smooth and glossy. Add a pinch of salt and allow to cool, cover and place in the fridge for two hours to set.
  3. Remove from the fridge and using a teaspoon scoop out the truffles and then roll in your hand to form spheres. Chill the truffles whilst you melt the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  4. Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to coat, sprinkle with cocoa powder and place on greaseproof paper to set. Enjoy!
