Irish Whiskey Truffles: An Easy-to-Make Gourmet Treat
Not to be confused with the precious underground fungus it’s named after (due to its strikingly similar appearance), the chocolate truffle is a type of confectionary that originated in France and has been enjoyed by chocolate lovers since the early 1900s. Traditionally made with chocolate and cream (ganache) and rolled in cocoa powder, these gourmet chocolates make the perfect dessert for your next dinner party – or any time you need a little something sweet. With this truffle recipe, we pay tribute to Ireland by adding a little bit of Irish whiskey to give them a little extra kick while balancing out all of that chocolatey richness.

Place chocolate, whiskey and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.
Heat heavy cream until it just comes to a boil.
Pour hot cream over chocolate/whiskey and whisk until chocolate is smooth, your mixture is now called ganache.
Set aside for an hour, or until ganache is firm.
Using a 0.8 oz ice cream scoop, scoop all of the ganache into balls, now called truffles, and lay on a parchment lined sheet tray.
Roll the truffles in the palm of your hand to make them perfectly round.
Dip each truffle into cocoa powder.
