  • 150ml (¼ pint) whipping cream
  • 400g (14oz) white chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
  • Icing sugar, for coating
  • Paper sweet cases




  1. Pour the cream into a saucepan and bring it to the boil.
  2. Pour the cream over the melted chocolate and then stir until it’s melted, then stir in the Irish Cream Liqueur – using a stick blender is a good way to ensure it’s thoroughly mixed.
  3. Pour the mixture into a plastic container or bowl and leave it to cool. Then chill the mixture for at least 4-5 hours, or overnight.
  4. Scoop the mixture out using a melon baler or teaspoon and then roll into round balls.
  5. Drop the balls into some icing sugar and turn the truffles to coat them and then lift them out of the icing sugar, shaking off any excess sugar then place each truffle in a paper case.
  6. The truffles will keep in a cool place for up to 1 week.
