I’m not a huge whiskey fan but when incorporated into the filling for these delicious chocolates the taste of whiskey is present, but not overpowering, and very unique. I used Costco’s Kirkland Signature Canadian Whiskey which has been aged 6 years. My husband said that at $50 for a 1.75L bottle it is an amazing price for what you get. Note: These chocolates should be removed from the fridge about 15-30 minutes beforehand to obtain optimal serving temperature and just the right whiskey flavor.  You will need a chocolate mold for these, or silicon molds and preferably a confectionery paint brush. Both are inexpensive and available at Michaels and other arts and craft stores.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4+

Ingredients
For the chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons Kirkland semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon milk chocolate, chopped (I simply used a bit of a small dairy milk chocolate bar)
For the chocolate filling
  • 4 teaspoons Kirkland Signature Canadian Whiskey
  • ½ cups Baker’s white chocolate bar, chopped (chips didn’t work for me the first time, they just wouldn’t melt)
  • 1½ tablespoons whipping cream

Instructions
For the chocolate filling
  1. In a double boiler, add the whipping cream and white chocolate chunks and stir until the white chocolate melts.
  2. Remove from the boiler, allow the filling to cool and add the whiskey and stir.
  3. Set aside.
For the chocolate
  1. In a double boiler, combine the semi-sweet chips and milk chocolate and melt.
  2. Using a small confectionery paint brush, place a layer of the melted chocolate into your chocolate mold.
  3. Place the mold tray in the freezer for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove and then place another thin layer of chocolate into the molds, then place back into the freezer for 2 minutes.
  5. Fill the chocolate molds with the whiskey chocolate filling, leaving 1mm of space to add a top cover of chocolate.
  6. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the filling is no longer runny.
  7. Remove from the freezer and place a final layer of chocolate over the top of the filling. You’ll want to do this last step fairly quickly as the melted chocolate will start to again melt the filling.
  8. Allow the chocolates to cool in the fridge and store in the fridge until ready to eat.
  9. Remember when serving to allow them to warm at room temperature for 15-30 minutes.
