Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Truffles | No-Bake, Only 4 Ingredients!

Bailey's Balls 6
Dessert is kinda my thing. For every holiday, and every dinner party invitation, I am always asked by the hosts to make desserts.  And the only thing I love more than dessert? Bailey’s Irish Cream Liquor. What can I say? It’s festive. 
This is not the first time I’ve incorporated Bailey’s into a dessert recipe, but the following 4-ingredient Truffle recipes is definitely the easiest. It requires only about 10 minutes of hands-on time, and the whole recipe can be doubled or even tripled for a crowd, or to package for impromptu hostess gifts!

Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Truffles


  • 1 12-oz bag of dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp salted Kerrygold butter, chopped into smaller pieces so it melts faster
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3-4 tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream Liquor


1. In a small saucepan, combine the butter and the heavy cream. Bring slowly to a gently boil, stirring so that the cream doesn’t burn.


2. While the butter and cream are coming to a boil, pour out the chocolate chips into a glass bowl.


3. When the butter and cream mixture is combined and boiling, pour it over the chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes.

4.  Gently combine the chocolate chips and the cream mixture together. The heat of the boiling cream and butter should melt the chocolate, but if you can’t get it creamy enough, through the whole thing in the microwave for 30 seconds (that’s why we used a glass bowl).

5. Add the Bailey’s to the mixture, stir, and put in the refrigerator for 3 hours or the freezer for 1 hour.

6. Once the mixture is firm, scoop it out with a cookie scoop (I love this cookie scoop from OXO), and place on a cookie sheet. Roll each ball in the decorative non-pareils of your choice.

Store in the freezer for up to 3 months in an airtight container.

P.S. Yes, you can absolutely make these without the Bailey’s for a non-alcoholic version.
