I was looking for a good recipe to use with my new Bailey's Irish Cream Chocolate Mint flavor, and I modified one from the Land O'Lakes website.  I thought you all might appreciate it too if you're looking for something yummy to make your valentine.  I'm sure if you're very crafty, you can shape the truffles into little hearts.

Chocolate Mint Irish Cream Truffles

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
pinch of salt
2-2/3 cups chocolate chips, divided
4 egg yolks, beaten
1/4 cup Baileys Chocolate Mint Irish Cream
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

Heat whipping cream in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until heated through (3 to 5 minutes). Stir in vanilla and salt.

Stir in half of chocolate chips with whisk until melted. Stir in egg yolks. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until slightly thickened (about 10 minutes).

Remove from heat; stir in Baileys and remaining half of chocolate until melted. Pour truffle mixture into medium bowl; cover. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Sift cocoa into medium shallow bowl. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of chocolate mixture into cocoa; roll to coat. Shape into balls; roll in cocoa again. Place gently on tray; refrigerate until firm (30 minutes). Store refrigerated.

I'm sure you can substitute the whiskey for the irish cream.  Since liqueur is sweeter, though, you might want to try a bit less at first and then taste test it before adding more.

Sounds like a heart attack on a plate! In a very delicious way though. My hubby would adore those. I can't eat refined sugars anymore, my body vehemently opposes them. I get to have agave syrup and stevia (woot!) so I can still have sweets, I don't have them as much though since those two things are a pain to cook with.
Enjoy these over Valentines with whoever is lucky enough to be the recipient Cheesy
