Baileys & Mocha Jello Truffles

June 20, 2017 (Last Updated: May 22, 2019)

I love serving jello truffles after dinner, with desserts or with after-dinner cocktails, and these come with a little mocha, coffee pick-me-up. Think of them as fancy Bailey’s jello shots for your more refined party guests.

6 jello truffles in a fish-shaped plate.

They’re always such a pleasant little surprise, and these will give your guests an extra sparkly twinkle in their eye. If you don’t have a fancy truffle mold, no worries! Just use an 8.5 x 8.5 pyrex, and cut into little jello cubes, or use a mini-cupcake tin.

I made these pretty little jello truffles for my annual Beef Bourguignon dinner party, and they were such a hit! I served them with my pumpkin cheesecake mousse.
