Best Way to Store Chocolate Truffles 

These Bailey’s truffles are best stored in the refrigerator. Keep them in an airtight container with a tight-fitting lid for best results. I also recommend keeping them away from any food in the refrigerator that has a strong odor. You don’t want them to take on the flavor of other foods. They will last in the fridge for up to one week. It’s nice to have these chocolate truffles on hand whenever you get a craving. 

Can I Freeze These Truffles

Yes, if you would like to freeze these Bailey’s truffles, you certainly can. What you will need to do is prepare the recipe as directed then place them on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours. After they are frozen, you can take them off the cookie sheet and then add them to a plastic or glass container. Another option would be to put them in a freezer bag. They will last in the freezer for up to three months. Then anytime you need a quick snack, you can quickly grab one. They can be eaten frozen, or they can be thawed out in the refrigerator.

Can I Leave Nuts Out of Recipe 

Yes, if you don’t like nuts, it’s more than fine to leave them out of the recipe. You can just completely omit them or exchange them for a different kind of nut, or roll them in crushed chocolate instead. Another fun option would be to roll the truffles in some cocoa powder. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe, so go ahead and place with it and try out some different flavors and textures. 

Can kids eat these Bailey’s truffles?

No, due to the Baileys Irish Cream that is added to the truffles, kids should not be allowed to eat them. While some may think that a little bit of alcohol will not hurt your children, I don’t think it is safe to let them eat them. If you want to make some truffles without Bailey’s cream, then the kids would be able to eat them. 


With just 6 ingredients needed to make these Irish Cream Baileys truffles, you can seriously throw these together in no time at all. It’s amazing how these six ingredients can create such a rich, velvety, and decadent dessert. 

  • 1 ½ C chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 C coarsely chopped pecans plus 1 extra cup to roll truffles in
  • 1 C 72% Dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 C Bailey’s Irish Cream

How to Make Bailey’s Chocolate Truffles

The best part about these Bailey’s chocolate truffles is it you don’t even have to cook them. You can simply prepare them and start indulging right away. Let’s get started so you can get in the kitchen and whip up a batch of these amazing chocolate truffles. 

Step 1:  You will need to grind up the pecans in a food processor until they become a texture that is very similar to sand. 

Step 2: In a large bowl, you will need to whisk together one cup of the pecans along with 1 and 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs. You can also use the food processor to grind up the graham crackers. That will give them the perfect texture you need. 

Step 3:  Using a microwave safe bowl melted chocolate for 30 seconds at a time. Stir in between every 30 seconds. Then continue to heat it until it is all the way melted. 

Step 4: Then, you’re going to need to whisk in the powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and Irish Cream until combined. 

Step 5:  Carefully add in the pecan and graham cracker mixture until combined and cover the batter with foil and placed in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 

Step 6:  Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, mix some of the batter into your palm and roll it into a ball. Truffle onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Continue this process until all of the truffles have been forming into balls. Then roll them into the course pecans to coat the outside of the truffles. Refrigerate, then enjoy!
