Hello, friends!

Yes, it’s official – Happy New Year! Let me wish you all the best; all the exciting and delicious things. Delicious like these Baileys Truffles.

Did you make your New Year resolutions? Something exciting or boring? Give up smoking? Eat healthily? Working out regularly? Enough sleep? Stop eating ice cream? Ouch, I hope you didn’t say anything about ice cream? All right, if you did say that, take your words back, please. Because everyone knows that ice cream is a huge exception.

I don’t make any resolutions. That’s just a nonsense to me. In my book, if you want to achieve something – do it. You don’t need to wait until next January. That’s just another excuse to put off something good. The only one thing I have promised is to have a very light ration in January. But that’s not a resolution – my body needs something nice and light. Hello, beets, spinach, and zucchini. I’ve so missed you. Salads, I’m so excited to have you back! Chocolate and ice cream, see you in February. Eggnog, I don’t even want to hear your name for another year.

Bubbly…wait, it’s an exception#2.

Being a food blogger, I probably should make some blogger’s resolutions this year, though.

For example post regularly. Since my work schedule changed 2 months ago, I haven’t got on track yet. So this January I should be more responsible posting 3 recipes per week like I used to do. That sounds rather doable.

Besides, I should read your posts more often. That’s doable too, but you guys should write less in this case, haha. Also, that would be great to cook inspired with your recipes, at least once in a while. That happened next year a couple times, and I hope to continue this year. I’ve been regularly adding your amazing recipes in my list so I just need to manage this.

I’ve got to learn some technical things not to have a panic attack every time the blog has an error. On the other hand, I think the professionals should handle all these issues, right? So I am not going to learn this stuff or I will break something. Perhaps, I will destroy not only my blog but the whole Internet. We don’t need this, do we?

I should definitely read some professional literature about food photography this year. And by “read” I mean actual reading but not falling asleep after the first 2 lines.

What I really should promise this year, is replying your comments regularly and on time. Always not having enough time, I’m postponing that for the next day. And then again. And a bit more. As a result, I often have to reply comments on 3-4 posts at the same time. You should stop it, Ben!

And finally, I’ve got to handle my new camera we got just a week ago. I had been using my previous camera for almost a year when I finally discovered all the options (I bet not all. But it’s too late already). I cannot wait so long this time. However, the new camera is more advanced and, hence, the manual is more complicated. Which means it could help you to get asleep faster. Well, right now, even though I am not fully satisfied with the quality of snaps I’m taking. I hope it’s just the matter of getting used to. And the manual.

I cannot say I am fully satisfied with the pictures of these delightful Baileys Truffles.

But you should forgive me, guys. Because these creamy and dreamy truffles are worth it. Thanks to adding a good amount of Baileys, they’re rather soft and a bit chewy, with a soft fudgy texture and with a distinctive Irish cream flavor. This time we had Cherry Baileys, but sure you can grab any liquor you have.

These festive Baileys Truffles would be that irresistible festive treat you may need right now.

Make them. And then eat them all.

Because on Monday we are not having any ice cream and chocolate.

Happy New Year, my friends!

10 Thoughts on “Baileys Truffles

  1. Thank you for “healthily.” For some reason, when most people want to eat healthy, the fist step appears to be to abandon grammar. As far as I’m concerned, chocolate, cream, and booze are good for my health – my mental health, that is. I have a feeling these truffles would make plenty happy.

  2. Happy New Year Ben!! I love Baileys and I love truffles so I love this recipe :) I did make a New Years resolution to go on a sugar detox and eat cleaner but I have already failed at that. Lasted all of one day…my bad! Love your pics and congrats on the new camera :)

    • We always have light food in January – it’s not even a resolution, it’s just what our bodies are craving for. I’ve been having green smoothies and beets for a week, and it feels great. Won’t be lying that I don’t have some ice cream too, though:)

  3. Happy New Year, Ben! I don’t make resolutions. Period. I do, however, make small (realistic) goals for myself. .. this year I just want to live in the “now” more, and worry less. So no worries, my goals didn’t involve nixing ice cream from my diet. ;) But, they didn’t involve lavender either. hehe. Anyways, these truffles are bomb! LOVING the baileys in here. I’m going to have to switch out the chocolate and cocoa, but other than that, I could devour a dozen of these in about .2 seconds. Cheers to a wonderful 2016, buddy!

  4. I think you did a great job with these photos, Ben! (And of course, the recipe itself sounds delicious, too…Bailey’s anything always wins in my book. I want these in my kitchen right now…ok, well maybe next week after I eat healthy for a week or two.) But back to photography. Check out Matt Armendariz’ book on food photography for bloggers. It’s broken down into easy chapters, and I still go back and read it occasionally. (http://amzn.to/1kF5Sg0)
