Chocolate Baileys Truffles Recipe

Welcome, March! Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

It’s often associated with the beginning of spring, flowers blooming, warm breezes in the afternoon, and all things green. Green beer is a traditional celebration tool but not for me.  I’ve never had green beer and don’t plan to start now.  I do, however, enjoy baking and creating tasty desserts that start with Bailey’s Irish Cream Liquor, like this one:
