Directions

MAKING
1. In a double boiler, add the chopped chocolate and melt it. This should take about 5 minutes.
2. Once melted, stir in the Irish cream liqueur and heavy cream with a whisk and spatula.
3. Place the melted chocolate in the refrigerator until it firms up for about 30-45 minutes.
4. Using a 2 teaspoon cookie scoop, portion out the chocolate mixture and roll in the palm of your hands into a ball. If it is firm, it should not stick to your hands.
5. Now roll the white chocolate ball in chopped macadamia nuts.

SERVING

TIPS
If the rolled balls are not firm enough, refrigerate them for an additional 15 minutes.
