Things I love about Bom Bom
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 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!
What are the liqueur’s ingredients?
Here is what it says on the bottle: “Premium Caribbean rum with hemp seed, natural brownie, cookie and other natural flavors, and caramel color.”
What does this liqueur taste like?
If you like cookies – who doesn’t like cookies?! – you will love the taste of Bom Bom Fully Baked. It is also reminiscent of a delicious melted ice cream flavor. Visit Bom Bom’s website to read more about the company’s journey and to peruse their delightful liqueurs and recipes!
How to make dark chocolate truffles
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.)
Place 1 cup of chocolate chips in a bowl and set aside.
Heat a medium saucepan on medium heat and pour the liqueur and heavy cream into it and bring the two ingredients to a slight boil
Take the cream and liqueur off the heat and pour it over the chocolate chips
Add 2 tablespoons of butter in the chocolate mixture and stir until everything melts
Place bowl in refrigerator for 2 hours
Take a spoon and scoop a dollop of the batter into your hand and roll it into a ball
Place each ball on a parchment covered jelly roll pan
Place the pan of truffles in the fridge for an hour before rolling the balls in cocoa powder
- 2 ounces of Bom Bom Fully Baked Liqueur, 4 ounces heavy cream and 1 cup of chocolate chips
- Chocolate truffle batter melted
- Just out of the fridge with a spoon in it
- A dollop of chocolate truffle on a spoon
- 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?
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.
Now let’s bite into one.
I hope you enjoyed this dark chocolate truffles recipe made with Bom Bom Fully Baked liqueur! They are super satisfying.
