Decadent Delights – Baileys & Walnut Truffles (Thermomix)

Baileys & Walnut Truffles

So what do you take to a dinner party when told “not to bring a thing”?  Like that ad on TV (which is really bad btw) I go for chocolates (and wine, obviously).  We were invited to our first dinner party since moving last weekend so I thought I’d make these Baileys & Walnut Truffles which are a real decadent delight to take along.

I have made them before with Frangelico (for “book club”) but the Frangelico bottle is still at the bottom of an unpacked box so I reached for the Baileys instead to see if that would work.  Yes, yes it did!

The original recipe is not mine but can be found here on Kidspot, it uses Marsala.  I adapted it for the Thermomix and swapped in the Baileys.

Given that Christmas is coming these truffles would also be great packaged up as little gifts, like this perhaps!

Like a truffle?  What do you take when told “don’t bring a thing”? What liqueur would you add?

    I have a confession to make, I actually try quite hard to avoid your blog when you have sweet recipes because generally I cannot eat them. This one however, is the bomb! I can make one little change and put it on the regular list. Yummy, yummy!!!

      I love these ones, and the fact that you can change the flavour by just changing the alcohol!

    We get so many bottles of Baileys from the kids at school, so always on the lookout for ways to use it up. They look so good and now I have a fudge craving.

      Squares are less fiddly than rolling into balls – all about making things easy these days! Thanks for stopping by.
