Last Halloween I made these delicious Milk Chocolate Tequila & Cayenne Pepper Truffles. They were darn delicious. This year for Halloween I changed it up, and made these Milk Chocolate Raspberry Vodka Truffles. Whoa. Sinful and Satisfying. In the pic below are the truffles with vanilla cupcakes, cream cheese frosting, topped with an oreo and a chocolate dipped strawberry.

Who doesn’t love Baileys? Its smooth, creamy, flavorful. But guess what? IT AIN’T KOSHER! I emailed Baileys headquarters and was like, “yo peepz, whats the official word?” And they were all like, “son, if our product was kosher it would have a hekhsher on it. Do you see a stamp of certification? Didn’t think so.” You can see a snapshot of their response at the bottom of this post. I’m sure there are other brands that are kosher, but I’m just too lazy to go searching for them. I’d rather make it on my own.
So what did I do? I said TO HELL WITH YOU, Baileys! And I went searching for a recipe. And I found several. They called for Chocolate syrup and almond extract. So the wheels in my head started turning. I’m already going through the trouble of making this at home (even though its so insanely easy it took less than 3 min to put together). How can I make this the most phenomenal ICL ever? And then it hit me. HOLY RUSTED METAL, BATMAN! I can use NUTELLA! Soooo good!
I just got some blood oranges at the supermarket and let me I tell you… WOW they are amazing. This recipe is adapted from Nadia G‘s Cooking for Trouble, and is ridiculously delicious. Make it for Valentines day. Make it in the summer. Make it when you watch horror movies like Kill it Before it Dies. Make it when you listen to Cobra Starship and cry because they won’t call you back.
I legit used to make a cognac version of these for Purim when we were in high school (minus the spice). It was my adolescent way of sneaking liquor into our diets. And my parents never knew. But since they read these posts, I guess I’m letting them know now. Sorry Mom!! Hey, I’m still a doctor, don’t be mad. No permanent brain damage. Next to these truffles are the Dulce de Leche Caramel Apple wedges.
