  1. Thinking about making these for Christmas! Do you have a rough estimate as to how many truffles you can get from this recipe? I don’t need a large number.

    Wasn’t too impressed with this recipe tbh. The filling tastes great but is extremely sticky and hard to work with even when chilled overnight. Microwaving the chocolate chips without adding anything else to them leaves me with a really viscous chocolate that you have to basically roll the truffles through to coat them and doesn’t drizzle well at all. Still giving it two stars because it does taste good, but I don’t see how you could possibly have produced the truffles pictured using these instructions.

    Totally agree with Arizhel! These things were sticky and almost impossible to work with…. I’m trying to salvage what I can by putting them in the freezer – but I have a feeling I will be eating these at home with my family rather than bringing them as dessert to a dinner party as planned!

    I made these, and they are wonderful. After reading above comments, I made a couple of adjustments. I increased Graham crumbs to 1 C. They were sticky, but I used the slightest bit if flour on my palms and they were perfect. I also added aa small amt of gulf wax to the chocolate.
    These are too good not to make. I got 4 dozen out of mine.

  5. I tried to make these for Christmas tins of cookies, fudge and treats for our neighbors. It was a disaster. I followed the recipe exactly. The dough was so sticky I could’nt even make balls. It was hard enough using two spoons to have a chunk drop onto the paper. I put them in the freezer all night. They would not freeze. I didn’t even attempt to melt the chocolate. The good part was we all got spoons and ate the sweet filling. It was really tasty. I know these would’ve been a hit.

  6. 4 stars
    So… I appreciated this recipe as a base, but I definitely made modifications. Consistent with the comments and having made truffles many times before, I knew they would be sticky n added a lot more graham cracker as well as a lot less sugar. And I thought it was quite weird, that for a Baileys-titled recipe, there were only 2 tablespoons of Baileys… increased that as well! Lastly , after dipping in white chocolate I also dipped some in green sugar-cinnamon for st Patrick’s. I have to say they are delicious!! 🍀
