Baileys Balls – the fast and easy chocolates
Baileys balls are simple and made quite fast.
These delicious Baileys balls are for those who wanted to quickly make chocolates, love Baileys or make something to give away. In contrast to real chocolates, these are quite fast and, above all, simply to made. We made those for Christmas, but they are great all year round. Either as a little treat in between or as a souvenir for friends or colleagues.
If you pack the Baileys balls nicely, e.g. in a glass, then you have a great and especially homemade kitchen gift. The gifted person, of course, should like such sweet stuff or Baileys.
For the mass:
- 100 g Shortbread Cookies
- 150 g white Chocolate
- 50 g Butter
- 75 ml Baileys
- 1 tbsp. Rum
- 2 tbsp. Cocoa powder
Finely grind the cookies and half of the chocolate with a food processor and place in a bowl.
Melt the remaining chocolate with the butter over a hot water bath and add to the bowl with the crumbs.
Put the Baileys and rum in the bowl and mix well to a smooth mass.
Leave the mass to cool for approx. 2 hours in a refrigerator.
Portion with a spoon about 35-40 pieces from the mass, and form them into balls between your hands.
Roll the balls briefly in the cocoa powder until they are evenly covered. Then place on a plate and let it cool again for about 30 minutes so that they become firm.
Place the finished Baileys balls in a closable container and store in a cool place.
