Happy Healthy Holidays!
These truffles are sinfully good! This creamy sweet confection will disappear as fast as wink.
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup Irish cream liqueur
1-1/2 cups chopped nuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
4 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
2 tablespoons butter
Butter a 8x8 inch pan.
In the top half of a double boiler melt the 3-cups semisweet chocolate chips, 1-cup white chocolate chips and 1/4-cup butter until soft enough to stir.
Stir in the confectioner's sugar and Irish cream until mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts. Place mixture in the prepared pan and lay a sheet of plastic wrap over top; press and smooth top down.
In the top half of a double boiler melt remaining chocolates until soft. Remove from heat and with a fork beat in the butter and Irish cream until smooth. Spread topping over cooled fudge with a knife. If a smooth top is important place plastic wrap over the top. Refrigerate until firm, one to two hours at least.
Note: This fudge freezes very well.
