Let me talk about the delicious Bom Bom Brand of liqueurs! (In case you missed it, I talk about Bom Bom in this post, too, so you can read even more about this awesome brand.)
A while back, the folks at Bom Bom reached out to me and asked if I would try a couple of their liqueurs. Being a woman who loves to try new products, I readily agreed!
I liked them so much that I made one of their famous recipes: the Bomtini cocktail
Talk about delicious!!!
This time around, they asked me to try their new vegan liqueur called ‘Fully Baked’. Of course, I agreed.
What makes this delicious Bom Bom Fully Baked liqueur vegan?
It is vegan because they made it with hemp milk! And… it’s not only vegan, it’s also gluten free and all natural!
Here is what it says on the bottle:
“Premium Caribbean rum with hemp seed, natural brownie, cookie and other natural flavors, and caramel color.”
As soon as I popped the cork off the bottle, I poured some in a shot glass and tasted it. Yum! If you like cookies – who doesn’t like cookies?! – you will love the taste of Bom Bom Fully Baked. I truly recommend it. It is also reminiscent of a delicious melted ice cream flavor, but don’t take my word for it, try it and see.

On to the Dark Chocolate Truffle Recipe
Front and center is the Bom Bom Fully Baked liqueur! We also have butter, heavy cream and chocolate chip cookies! (My original idea was to roll some of the dark chocolate truffles in cookie crumbs. But after trying it with three of them, I decided I didn’t like them that way.)
I measure out the Bom Bom Fully Baked liqueur, the heavy cream and chocolate chips.
I dump the chocolate chips in a small bowl.
Next, I grab a medium saucepan and pour the liqueur and heavy cream into it. I heat the two ingredients until they come to a slight boil. I shut off the heat under the saucepan and pour the contents over the chocolate chips. I add two tablespoons of butter and stir the ingredients together until the chocolate is melted.
Refrigeration is Magical
Time to pop the bowl of chocolatey goodness into the refrigerator to help it harden.
It takes two long hours.
Three things you need to know about these dark chocolate truffles
- Even though it has hardened in the fridge, the batter will still melt somewhat when you roll it into a ball between your palms.
- You cannot store these dark chocolate truffles on the counter, they must be stored in the fridge.
- You don’t have to use your hands; you can use a small cookie scoop to shape the truffles.
No matter how many times I make truffles, my experience is always the same: they melt easily! But what can you expect from fudgy and gooey? Just remember, the dark chocolate truffles disappear in two bites, so it doesn’t matter.
I take a spoon and gather some batter.
I put the dollop in my hand and roll it it into a ball. I continue until the dark chocolate truffles batter is gone.
Your hands will get dirty, but it’s nothing a little water won’t cure!
After I roll them in a ball, I place them back in the fridge for a half hour.
I get my cocoa powder, place it in a shallow bowl and roll each of the balls into it.
You can see that I rolled three of the dark chocolate truffles into the crushed chocolate chip cookies. The rest went into the cocoa powder.
Let’s look at a close up.
Now let’s bite into one.
